Thanks Much Larryboy! That was a good time seeing all those old bikes ride in. Here's a pic of RTWDoug's bike. I like how he rolled in with a cig in the mouth. Good thing there were no fuel leaks

Cannonball finish in SF, CA...

Almost there....

Well, today was our target to open the Carducci Dual Sport, LLC, doors for business, but were still a few days off. Just small details to wrap up, but details none the less.

I'll post here soon when we go live, but we will initially do a Pre-Release limited production offering for the ADVrider community and will do that on the Vendors thread before our website is up and running for the rest of the world.

So, stay tuned...

After I stuffed myself with bratwurst, I took a test ride in the Santa Cruz hills today - just went to synthetic motor oil and a pass-thru oil filter. Seems to be running about ~20degF cooler in like conditions. I like it

That bike is awesome! You've done a great job with it! Any chance you can get some video of it running on some trails? I would love to see it in action.

Carducci Dual Sport, LLC - Now in Vendors forum

We now have a thread going in the Vendors forum before our website comes up (taking time to get all the details in there). It lists the kits and prices, and a few other details.

We will take names on a list for now, but real orders once the website is up with all the terms and conditions stuff...

Here's the thread link:

SC3 Gas Tank Development

Back to design and development mode! Im starting the larger capacity gas tank design for the SC3 Dual Sport, so wanted to share the development and get youre feedback as it progresses.

The plan is to create a ~ 6 gallon plastic tank suitable for dual sport riding that will fit the 1993 to 2003 Sportster models (and possibly 2004+). It will be made for volume production and available for purchase thru our company. Timing is TBD, but im going to push to complete it early next year.

Here is some of the initial design work...

SC3 Gas Tank Development

Getting the shape right so its 1) functional, and 2) integrates well with the design.

3D CAD is a great tool to do this. I hope to have the shape/look pretty close before any cost is spent prototyping.

I pray that the fuel tank won't cost me my arm!! Are you planning the peacock to be at lowest point of the tank or ? Will the tank be capable of withstanding drop-down abuse like the IMS tank?

I am definitely in market for fuel tank and clearly I shall put off my plan to purchase this which is cheapest big tank I could find on the market for the 86-03 model. The plastic design sounds like the tank might be a bit lighter than this one.

Edit: One quick question- would the designed tank change the setting of stock seat? I already have Day-Long seat and would hate to not use it.
