Cool the 5 reds, gear indicators?  The others are obvious signals, high beam and neutral.  Very slick.

I started the build thread after I was far enough along that I was confident that it would be finished.

Yes, Yes...
If you click on my own build thread link, you'll see the many long months since I've been able to post anything new... namely because I have been counting on my "FRIEND" to do the majority of the build... Hmphh...
Thus I am on here looking at cool pics of other cool bikes that I can't ride....
Cheers!

Thanks. Your thread is another one that I've followed before posting my own for obvious reasons.
But also because my first streetbike was a GS450T.
I also own a DR350 set up as an adventure bike.
So I have a thing for Zuks as well.

Nice one! I would've liked a T to scramble to be honest, much better tyre selection and wire wheels... but you can only work with what you have and T's are extremely rare over here.

I started second guessing if it was even worthwhile to finish my build when I saw what people were doing with Savages

HEY MAN!
Thanks for chiming in; I'm glad you saw my build thread; Jay swears we'll be done in a month! I'm scratching my head.
I've seen that bike that you posted up; in fact there's a huge build thread all about it on the Savage Forum. Taht thing went through a hundred different versions before it got to be what you saw, and he has every bit of it documented. It's really quite amazing; a total frankenstein. I'd still like to try the Mono-shock on mine; maybe some day, but this year I just want to ride that damned thing! I found my Savage for just $250; so there's no reason you can't find one to work on when your scrambler is done...

You may have seen these, but here's that monster Savage build:

There's also another guy who started a Cool Savage Scrambler, but sadly had to abandon it. I think he sold it:

CHEERS!!

Mr.Job....I gotta say man, fantastic work all around! Timing and all.....I've been contemplating an 'Inappropriately Offroad' event for the Fall, basically taking any crapwagon bike you want, strip off all the garbage, spoon on some dirt tires and go thrash.
I fully anticipate seeing someone offroad a GL11100 (don't ask) but your bike is far more developed that what I'm proposing. My idea is more of a Ghettocross or Stupermoto type of thing...wish I'd coined those terms, makes me giggle every time I say it!

But anyway, lovely work I'll be following!

Well, a dirty version anyway. In fact the rule is no actual dirtbikes allowed.
All bikes will be welcome on the run but I plan to poke fun at anyone bringing a real dirtbike or dual sport. Crapwagons for the win!

Special is one way to put it!
Back when I was dirt biking every weekend (I'm now dating myself) there were still guys careening thru the underbrush on stripped down Triumphs and BSAs. Dad and I rode with this kat named Nandor (the Great!), this crazy Hungarian guy about 5'2" of insaninty. He rode a Norton Comando with and Earle's front end and Fox air shocks. It was the goofiest and to my 14 year old mind the most terrifying and inspiring bike I'd seen to date. If it weighed less that 500lb I'd be stunned. You could in all truth hear it 3 miles away....just bonkers.

I'm hoping for similar insanity.
Oh there will be video.....Oh yes.
