I thought you had given up here. Happy to see an update though. The bike looks as shitty as ever. I mean that in the best way possible.
Sav0r the adventure.

Sounds shitty too.  Gives me a special warm glow the way it upsets the local HD riders.  I think I'll go over the dealership for some test rides....

Do I like a bit of good engineering? Yup. Do I like a bit of tastefully applied (sloshed on) flat-black? Heck yeah.

The Hossack front end ticks all the right boxes for me, ever since seeing Robs absolutely mental GSX... (you know which one I mean!)

I actually don't... am not really a regular here, and have a memory like a steel sieve to begin with.  You have piqued my interest - link?

Course not, but its largely done... at least for this summer.  All I currently have planed is mounting a regular (4") headlight opposite the LED and my gauges up on the BMX crossbar.  Oh, and a tweak to the front shock link to fix my wheel rate curve.

My detailed build thread is over at customfighters.com and stretches back 5 1/2 years - http://www.customfighters.com/forums/showthread.php?t=61895

Amazingly, I'm still running the same battery as shown in that first post!

Figured I'd pop in with a couple of quick update pics.  I put about 4,000 miles on the bike this year and am pretty happy with it.  Soon I'll be taking it back into the shop this winter to do a few small upgrades / repairs (I tore up the back fender mounts really bad) and a deep cleaning.  Also, my kid asked if I could build a SIDECAR, so if money and time allows, I'll at least be making a start on that!  I want do do a full articulated / leaning rig, a bit like the Flexit setup, both for handling reasons and to keep with the mechanical madness.

This pic is from doing intermission entertainment for Flat out Friday in Milwaukee, same weekend as the Mama Tried show.



This one from out at Wasteland Weekend, a Mad Max festival near Edwards Airforce Base.
