A guy I work with had an "extra" Magna and wanted to clean out his garage. He gave me almost the whole bike. After I fired up the motor on my garage floor to see if it was any good, I contacted a friend that builds off-road rails and he agreed to build me a frame out of 4130 chromoly. We drew it up on paper and after he finished some other jobs we got started on it. It took about 2 weeks to build the frame. After I got it home, I had to rush to get it ready for the Thanksgiving weekend at the dunes(big weekend). I fabricated or machined all of the speciality parts at home in my machine shop. I didn't turn off the garage lights until 11:30 the night before I left for the Buttercup Sand Dunes at Yuma, AZ. It worked flawlessly the first time out. I have since replaced the clutch disks with carbon-fiber from Dave Dodge.
