Well.. I'll tell you what... it was NOT cheap to do.

Well worth it though.... looks awesome.

The build is probably gonna slow down a good bit soon as it's getting cold here and I'll not be able to even think about painting until spring. I did quite a bit really quickly. Punch list is looking like this.

* Cut chain to length
* Setup handlebars and wire in front turn signals (you can see the little LED rings on the forks in the headlight picture. I'll have to add load resistors into the harness.
* Make up front brake line
* Powder coat levers
* Clean and rebuild Carb
* Powder coat engine covers and Rocker covers
* Buy Ironhead Front fender and modify it.
* Fabricate rear fender modifications. (Decisions to make here... cut struts add a hoop, don't cut struts stay mild, )
* Select and order exhaust (gonna be hard for me to not pick the RSD Scrambler exhaust.)
* Paint

Unless you plan to go with high pipes, pick the RSD Scrambler exhaust.  It's too nice not to.

The more I look and contemplate welding up my own design... the more it's enevitable that I go with the Roland Sands option. It evidently sounds great and is a good performer as well.

I got the chain cut to length today. I had to cut off the upper passenger peg mount and belt guard mount off the swing arm. The longer suspension puts the chain right in their path. So there's no way there'll be a passenger, but this wasn't ever gonna be a 2UP bike anyway...  kinda justifies what my tentative plans are for the rear. I have a bit of wiring clean up to do up front and need to add load resistors to the turn signals, they flash way too fast.

I was able to get the footpegs and mounts done today. I ended up turning a new bushing for the brake pedal on the lathe (I melted the original when i was powdercoating... I forgot to remove it. :)) I also relocated my coil to where the horn was mounted... I'll post a pic of that when I get the plug wires shortened. Oh also my original tank and fenders sold so I was able to get my front and rear fenders ordered along with a carb kit... Hopefully my exhaust and wheels sell soon too... I could just about pay for the exhaust or at least knock out the seat also. :) I'm having fun.

I got my handlebars from the powdercoater today. I think that's gonna work great.


Also my rear fender came so I tossed the tank and seat on along with the new fender to see how stuff looks... def not using that stock seat and I think that fender is gonna get shortened for sure...

The bike is looking good, and I love the dual sportster name. But those pegs look off, it may just be the angle of the pic, but it looks like you would have to angle your toes inward to hit the rear brake or shifter.
