so the flat reed is 96% done. Details:

65cc cast iron metrakit
bendy metrakit pipe
boyesen dual stage reeds
19 phbg racer
6 roller vario w/ tjt weights
ds50 ignition and gearing
fresh gazelles
ghetto spray paint, seat, overall. Its a 15-footer

Its not super nice, but it looks slightly less stolen now. Runs ok, needs some tuning, and I'd love a smaller front sprocket for more low end. Its good now, but I don't want to go really fast, just get to speed fast. Not much else to say. This bad boy is coming to berkeley with me. Later on it will get properly blasted and powdercoated, but I couldn't resist a $6 makeover. So I've got about $600 in this thing now, maybe a little less, but not bad considering its potential. I still need to make my kickstand longer and get my pedal cranks back and on.
