Ruining a Perfectly Good Sporty

Put the Andrews N8 cams in the Slingshot today. These cams would be the kid that beat up the wimpy kid on the playground, i.e. the weak stock cams. Not drag race radical, but a large improvement over the stockers, especially on a bike this light.

While I had the cam cover off, I was obligated to give it the classic trim job. This was the first one I'd done, mainly because few customers will pay you to permanently disfigure their bike's engine. After a few hours of rough cutting, grinding, filing, sanding and polishing it's looking right.

I watch A LOT of American Chopper and I keep a close eye on the Flat Broke Customs blog to know how to do it right.
