I remember this bike from about a year ago.  Looks great!  Could you explain how you mounted your engine to the frame?  New mounts?

^ Thanks guys. Yes, completely removed old mounts and added all new mounts. I am really happy with this combo. GREAT power, good fuel economy, superb brakes. These Shinko DOT trials tyres work fantastic,stick like glue , and are wearing way better than I thought possible. Rear single shock is spot on.

Thanks for the response.  Do you feel a lot of vibration thru the bike or bars because the engine is not on rubber mounts?

The engine is counterbalanced, so it is pretty smooth, and mirrors are very usable.

Wow. I started this build 2 years ago! Time flies when your having fun. I am getting a little itch for a brand new bike though. :o I typically keep bikes for 2 or 3 years.

Wow, that is an incredibly cool build! I bet that thing is a blast on the little dirt / clay back roads

147.5 mile loop, about 110 of that sand blasting. Started out at 50 degrees and warmed up to 76 degrees.
