    ** PICS OF MEMBERS RIDES ** - Official Before & After Thread

    Thanks, it would have required serious fabrication to make the lines decent if I didn't go with what I did. Definitely one of the more comfortable customs I have ridden. Should be nice for long road trips.

    Ya couldn't get even past throttle before exceeding the speed limit in town, and that is before the carbs are dialed in. Should be a nice bike for the highway and mountain roads around the area.

    More progress on bike, been doing little misc. painting and figuring out where electronics are going to go, due to how far out the powdercoater is currently.

    16 gauge vs 18 steel flat seat pan
