Awesome, another cruiser to scrambler!  I like where this one's going; I'll tag along for some inspiration.  Liking the homegrown rear suspension setup so far.

Got a chance to get the shock mocked up. Built some temporary brackets to see ride height and sag. Looks and feels pretty good.

Loving this. How do you feel about the tank? Using that or going with something else?

What's your plan for tires? I didn't have any luck finding cool looking tires in a 18" front and 16" rear. Or were you going to pit new rims on the stock hubs?

Yeah tires are tricky. The set I have are decent. but definitely wanting to switch it up. Future plan is to re hoop these hubs.

Nice build... exhaust looks good, did you base it off an aftermarket system?  I only ask because I've never seen a 2 into 1 that merges that close to the head.  Most merge later to give the bike better low to mid range power...

I'm sure someone on here knows better than I but if it really doesn't matter, it gives me an idea for a set that I would like to build too

Thanks! The exhaust had no base just ordered some tube and started building. You will find that most of my build it like that. figure out a look/feel that I like and go with it. This build has been on the back burner lately. but have still been collecting parts.
