The kit requires hand tools, a decent cut-off wheel of some sort, and a dose of patience for the often inadequate, downloadable PDF and video-based instructions. Word to the wise: these are worth a careful look-see before you drop the $2700 smackers. I’m a gnat’s hair ahead of the average mechanical curve, and I’m not scared to booger something up in the name of learning. Suffice it to say that this project is not for the complete toolophyte. It’s no Lego kit, and like any worthwhile project, there are things that, if you screw up, can kill you. Thus the point, and the attraction. You build it, and it’s your solo ass on the bike. So make sure it’s right and tight before you aim for a fight. Got it Chim-Chim?
