In order to look right while riding that beast you need to be dressed in all black with a skull printed handkerchief around your face, and a chainsaw slung over your back.

very interesting!  it grew on me from page 1 to page 3...i kinda like it!  although, i think a different tank would really top it off.  just my .02, though.  well done!

Well, At first I was very angry. :x

Then I was very depressed. :cry:

I am now at the stage where I realize I am not in the hospital and i should stop my bitchin. I got her home and it looks like a tank, controls and bars and some detail work should get me back on the road.  Please dont ask, it just is what it is!!! :roll:

Thanx all. ;D

Well I am feelin a little better. Got her torn down and the front end appears to be straight. Is there an "official" way to tell for sure?? I used my jack handle as a set of bars, made the bike level on the jack and eyed up the front wheel while looking straight down the front of the triple with the homemade bar straight. Wheel looks straight as an arrow. 8)

Made a list of parts needed to replace and it looks pretty inexpensive so far, might get out of this for under 5 bills!!

Glad you're ok. That said, I would loge to know what happened. Out of curiosity, how much does this bike weigh?
