There is so many custom designed, one off machined parts used in the build of this motorcycle that make it impractical to list. A close review of the pictures will support this statement.

All low alloy steel fasteners are grade 8 (150 KSI) or socket head cap screws (160 KSI) and grade 8 nylock nuts. General assembly: All screws are secured with Red or Blue loctite. Bolts/All other hardware are nylon patch or ring or aircraft specification. History: Purchased in 1995 as a total basket from a friend who gave up on it. Basket came with original engine cases, cylinders, heads, frame, swing arm and 3.6 gallon SuperGlide single fuel tank. Completed build in 2004 and is on second rear tire since completion. There are no leaks, weeps or drips evident anywhere in or on this motorcycle. Bike is kick start only and selling because it is just too dangerous to ride in the Seattle area any more.

All low alloy steel fasteners are grade 8 (150 KSI) or socket head cap screws (160 KSI) and grade 8 nylock nuts. General assembly: All screws are secured with Red or Blue loctite. Bolts/All other hardware are nylon patch or ring or aircraft specification. Completed first build in 1997 and have modified several times since then (3" belt drive and Exile oil tank installed in 2003, S&S bottom end was installed in 2006) and in 2010 I went into the engine again and while there installed +.040 Wisco pistons (coated skirts and tops), replaced bronze valve guides and Teflon seals, replaced with 4 each Crane roller rocker arms and hardened Crane rocker shafts, rebuilt heads, replaced 4 each Crane solid lifters and replaced 4 each pushrods plus rebuilding brake calipers, replacing pads, secondary chain, etc. To prove quality and condition, I will disassemble front cylinder, cylinder head/rocker box and remove cam/gear case cover to validate condition to buyer. There are no leaks, weeps or drips evident anywhere. This motorcycle is in exceptional condition. I cannot ride anymore and all it does is sit in the garage now. In 2009 I became ill which has developed into a chronic health issue and the condition has developed to a degree which I cannot ride with any degree of safety. Bike has traveled less than 100 miles in the past 3 years. I have to bite the bullet and let go of it so it can be used as it was intended to. For reference I have been a machinist since 1969 and working as an aerospace mechanical engineer since 1976 designing structures and mechanical systems.This motorcycle has been through a seires of builds, each time adding or changing something to improve performance or revise an earlier design of some detail or assembly to what I want. Basis for materials and application of were derived from MIL-HDBK-5/SAEMMPDS-01. I worked my way through school as a machinist, which gave me the experience and having a friend who owns a machine shop, to make the parts used in the build of this motorcycle. I have no idea of how many hundreds of hours I have in research, design, consulting, drafting, purchasing, programming, machining, tooling and assembly labor invested. This motorcycle is designed and built as well as I, and my associate engineers, could build a motorcycle. And of all the people who have looked this motorcycle over wherever it has pulled in, have always expressed the same opinion. It never fails to draw a crowd nor get us where we wanted to go and get back again. There were no compromises in materials, development time and manufacturing technology that built this motorcycle. It is a conservative high strength statement in mechanical design and craftsmanship.
