If your Ford had a Matthew McConaughey, it would be a Lincoln

A year on two wheels

I just realized I’ve owned this for over a year. I mean, there was a gap there where some dickass co-opted it for a few months but... I still have the title and I have the bike back so #stillcounts. This is the second longest I have owned a vehicle, the longest being the NB at about 2 years.

Add some sort of gauge cluster. Or at the very least a speedometer and water temp gauge.

New tires

Full custom-welded exhaust

Fiberglass tail section

Longer rear shock

Grease driveshaft bushings and replace rear-drive oil

Paint engine, frame, tank, etc
