Will it do wheelies when it's done? Please just tell me it will do wheelies when it's done so I can sleep at night. Hurry up and finish it so we can see some wheelie shots.

No seriously, nice work, hurry up and finish it.
NO wheelies i am going to have like 140 HP but it is better than the stock 95hp.
Going to work on it now.

Thanks
I wish that I had more $$$$ to put into it I would have done some things diferant. When I started it was going to be a low $$$$ build with out a good plan. But I think in the end it will turn out good.

theres nothing wrong with a low budget build, hell, half the time those turn out cooler and nicer than the high $$$$$ ones.

if I were to build a zuk it would be pretty similar to this one. Do you have any pictures showing all of it in it's latest condition?

The charger needed new rotors , shafts, bushings and seals.

The last owner droped a bolt into it. Luck would have it that the bolt stoped the rotors and the belt sliped.

I'll bet a coke or your choice it still won't make it to S.Lake.

Got the Front D-shaft in today, looks good, gotta check droop/compression clearance, but looks ok static.

I just got a few clean up items left after the R&P. Things that should have been done already.

Red Lock tite on the rear disk bracket bolts (they were loose again when I took it apart)
Mount hi-lift
fab up a mount for air tank & handle for tank
clean up triple shift area
Better box for the porto-welder
