Erasing the cookies doesn't work. It's hidden somewhere else I just haven't bothered to look for it. They can flag your IP too, but if you have a lot of people logging in from the same areas, especially cellular, you risk losing people.
i know what cookies and IP addresses are but think that's getting into some shit way ahead of my inter-webs knowledge. hahaha

More details are needed for recommendation of said shop.
Short version: in 2012 fiancé broke up with me. There was someone else. His name was Vic Odin. Went through breakdown. Decided to “show her”. Bought a 1972 Honda CB350 from the side of a barn. I wanted to build a cafe bike. Over the years I have welded, powder coated, has customs parts made, etc. now I need to have it assembled and made road ready.

Don't you have a lot of free time right now? Build that shit yourself and have some fun doing it. Building bikes is fun as hell. I always wanted to build bikes as I was growing up, but once I had kids, I got out of riding and more into wheeling. Now I just wanna make things go faster in the dirt haha

I have some free time, yeah, and I have enjoyed working on it, but there are certain limitations to my abilities. Lacing wheels is not something I can do. I don’t have a background or the equipment necessary to complete that. There is one other thing that keeps creeping into my mind when I do work on the bike, and that is the integrity of my work. If I screw something up on my truck, it’s probably nbd, but building a motorcycle and reassembling it etc, if i screw up and something goes wrong while I’m riding, there is a much greater risk of injury or death.

Crazy, i have a CB125 i picked up for my girl. been slowly building it up (dude that had it before wasn't very mechanically inclined.....or anything for that matter) but trying to find parts have been a PIA for me.

Yeah, finding parts is difficult. It took me 6 months to get a new triple clamp. What’s worse is having custom work done. Seriously, I have lost so much money and time to these idiots who act like they can do things and then don’t, but still expect payment. If anyone needs a list of places NOT to go, I can provide a comprehensive one

Yeah I get that. I wouldn't want to lace wheels either. Too much work and not enough fun involved. That's why I had mag wheels. (actually its because I couldn't afford the wheels I wanted while I was working on the bike)
Finding a decent shop is never easy, and the good ones aren't cheap.

What all are you looking to do to that bike besides wheels?

Here's a pic of the bike I built. Kinda shitty pic but all I was able to find. I still have it but don't ever ride it anymore. It's more of a scrambler. I used to take it up the fire roads all the time and slide through the turns like the flat track guys do. It was way too heavy and ground clearance sucked with those pipes to really be doing that sort of thing, but it was still a lot of fun at the time.

That thing is looking great man! You should be totally proud of how that turned out. It looks awesome!

I have done most of the work thus far. Frame was cut and fabbed now I wanted it, complete with new rear shock mounts and new mounts for the tank which is a custom fit Benelli Mohave tank from 69. Wheels and hubs are ready to go, I ordered new custom spokes, I made a new rear seat cowl and battery cover to relocate and fiberglassed it. Custom triple tree, rear sets, oil catch can, everything. It’s all ready to go. I was able to get NOS parts for all the forward controls and everything.

What I really need is just a final assembly and custom wiring. That’s it. All the tough stuff is done the wiring is going to be a chore, but everything should be good to go otherwise

Damn brother that's pretty shitty to hear, but hey man sounds like a new chapter is just around the corner.
