Alex left Florida Last night and is driving cross country to his starting point in Idaho.
Hope he gets there before it starts snowing :lol:
You may wonder why I haven't shown a pic of both bikes together and complete...
It's because they are not done...
Yes, Crazy Al is really crazy.
He hasn't fired up either engine yet.
The plan is to finish building them once he gets to Idaho... :o
