Thanks for the compliments guys. I did a little more decal work on it tonight... I think this looks a little more bad ass and rugged. I've not decided if I need a stripe on the front fender.

Loving it man.

My only thought is can the headlight move up an inch or so? It's below the line of the bottom and the tank and it draws my eye. I moved it up an inch or so in photoshop just to see if I liked it. I'ts attached.

That thing looks like a blast!

Good eye!!! It is something I am addressing as it bugs my eye too. I actually have another headlight mount fabricated to do just that I just havenít powder coated it yet.

When I modify the kick stand I plan to powder it and install it.

I went ahead and made up some stripes for the front fender and installed them... I think I approve... I also wrapped the exposed bit of fork tube between the triple trees with the same matte black vinyl... I like that. I took the day off from work today to get some real progress made on this thing today, I have already marked a couple of things off the punch list... we'll see if I can get a few more items marked off and maybe toss some gas in this thing today.

So I got my punch list all done and put a bit of gas in the tank and sure as shit it fired right up. (the smoke is the new exhaust heating up the first time.)


I gave it a ride down to the gas station and topped off the tank.... MAN the new cams/intake/carb kit/exhaust really woke this girl up... the carb even performs good with the recommended starting point of 1-1/4 turns out on the mix screw... I'll get around a little on it tomorrow but I'm really pleased with the riding position and handling.

Here's a pic of it outside the garage.


Don't forget here's what I started with

It must be lighter than originally, do you have an idea of how much?  By the way, I still love this bike.

Yeah the wheel swap alone was a huge weight savings I bet I shed near 50 lbs or more between that and the screaming eagle exhaust those things weighed so much compared to the replacements. The new tank, tail and bar/cluster, seat all weigh considerably less too... Iíd guess I shed 60# total...

Gonna ride it out to get a haircut in a bit and try to get some good pics.
