    24 pounds heavier, I stand corrected. The bike will definitely fold in half now

    So the bike is almost done (just wrapping up some little things here and there). Bike runs better than ever expected, I love the feeling when boost kicks in. I have updated the fuel pump, fuel pressure regulator, and installed a blow off valve. Can't wait to ride this thing around this summer!
