    Anyone wanna let me build my engine at their shop?

    Anyone in the houston area that has a shop, and wouldn't mind me assembling my parts there? I have all my own tools, and parts, but I'd like someone to feed me tips and pointers of engine assembly.. These things are tricky, I'm a good mechanic, but you know how it is... And I don't have any very clean places to work at my house...

    The garage floor worked well for my rebuilds. Come to think of it I completely rebuilt a KX250 in the living room from the frame up. My wife wasnt real happy with me but it was August in TX. Fat boys dont like to sweat.
