I know most FI builds have died on here but if you've been following you'll know I'm employed by the US government...and with the current shutdown I'm waiting until my paychecks resume before continuing the project. Until then I'll be working for free.

Hey all! Been a while and hope everyone is doing well. I am gearing up for version 2.0 of the FITT build...this time with two turbos to fit the namesake.
The bike has been sitting for a couple years now and is mostly disassembled, but Im gearing up to put her back together better than ever. Ive since taught myself to TIG, so one of my main goals is a different shock setup.
Back in 2019 I started to work on it but the bike got pushed aside for other projects, but I did have some custom MLS head gaskets made by a company in Thailand. They came out GREAT and am looking forward to see how they hold up compared to the solid copper ones.
Looking forward to sharing as things progress, and getting caught up on the happenings around NGW.
