I think that pic would have sold more bikes than the ones with the girls.canyoncarver said:And just to be fair:
canyoncarver said:Here's an issue maybe one or two of you can help with ideas for. The top of the carb circled, is just under an inch of clearance to the frame. I need to find either a different fitting or something otherwise it's too tight of a bend for a cable.

Just ran into this thread, following.
I have tons of Commando stuff left over; hit me up for anything you need, maybe I have it...
"Decent" is a relative term!canyoncarver said:Do you have a decent rear fender?
grandpaul said:I've got pix of the fender, need an email address to send them to.

Gotcha bookmarked now. Better late than never.
pidjones said:The fender looks perfect for it. If I were ever lucky enough to build another Brit bike, it would have one of the front fender dorsals that they used to put license on.

canyoncarver said:The Commando is still on my lift but progress has been stalled as I shifted my time to the YZF track bike(s) and prepping the ZRX and my wife's FZ6R for an upcoming road trip. I'm considering a few options on the Commando after talking with Dad. I'm really wanting the P11 to ride instead. Might even consider selling the Commando to fund the 65' Atlas featherbed project. Shiny.
