I decided to part out the Vmax instead of fixing the second gear issue. Going well so far

You keep mentioning that, what do you have in mind? I haven't even begun to look into electric bikes

Yes, what a piece of fuck it is.

If I went electric it would be a zero

Great news everyone! Met a guy with a 04 600rr, who is in automotive school at a local community college near me. I asked him if they do prep work/paint, and he said they do. For super cheap since they are students, Id pretty much be only paying for material. So the ranger will be painted soon

The Zero or the Lighting. Both have about 2x the specs at 1/2 to 1/3 the price of the hardly. If I wanted to spend there was a Hungarian bike with some awesome engineering in it, was STILL cheaper.

Right now I am trying to get life straight. Should have my townhouse rentable soon, carpet install coming up. Two job interviews today, see how that goes.

It will fail. Hardly has gone out of their way to minimize the target audience for that bike for the past 30 years. NOW they need them. Their standard bike bike audience is not only aging out of the game, but they would never by this anyway. And chances that dealers will push it is minimal. See: Buell and what hardly did to one of the smartest bike minds in America. If a dealer even had a Buell it was behind the coats and nobody even knew anything about it. Hardly makes more on merchandise sales than bikes.

Completely agree. That or a Lighting. Hardly sales are on a slide as typical owners age out of buying. They are trying to lure younger buyers but they don't know how. This EV is an expensive thing, zero an lightning have same specs for 1/2 to 1/3 the cost
