    Just ordered the raptor pegs from dlxoprodox. Love their grips and pegs.
    Sending the motor out tomorrow to get assembled. It’s coming together

    Update on the build.
    Motor is getting assembled and should be all together right after the holidays.
    Docs esc is going in the build really wanted to keep the wire plus system but couldn’t stand the rats nest.
    Raptor pegs on order and should be arriving soon.
    That’s about all I can do for now but it’s moving.
    Looking at paint around March-may timeframe
    Will post pics on the build

    Looking Great. Black Chrome sounds interesting for the wheels?

    Wet sanded and polished the motor mount foot control mount.
    Has anyone chromed theirs? I am thinking about doing it but wonder if the chrome peels it could possibly cause the motor to misalign.
    Thoughts?

    I have always liked those grips and pegs. Started to get some years ago, just never came up with the money. I think you did good Paul

    No shit I am looking at a few companies. I may go the used route if I find something I like and get them powdercoated. I have always really like metal sport wheels but I will never pay $8k for wheels. [​IMG]
