Got the final bits back from the powdercoater yesterday (I decided to have the trees done, as well as some small assorted parts).  Big thanks to Catfish over at Farklemasters.com for generously lending his tire machine (which ended up his tire irons as he doesn’t have the parts for a 19′ rim) and his elbow grease to help me get the new sneakers on the rims (new avon 18s with ultra heavy duty Michelin tubes). 

Threw the forks together today, decided to put them on to see how everything fit.  had an issue with the new steering head bearings that I will have to work out, but hopefully that will be relatively easy to solve…
