The 29 is Awesome! Looks about the same as when I saw it in PA but sounds a lot better. Looking forward to the road test.

Just to fill you in, I have an idea those tires were intended for MY bike, then Doug found a bike to fit them onto!

Hey Bernard
Yep, you are right

But I hadnt heard from you in a long time, so I built a bike to use them on. I hate to see good tires just sitting!

I can still get you another set

Doug

Testing now ?
Head up to Hampton, Tn. , Rick's Rondezvous starts tomorrow. I'm sure you'd be granted 'Special Guest" status.
There'll be plenty of gravel roads and worse to test out the new rig .
See ya there ?

bike is much closer to being done. I was gone to an AMCA meet in NC for several days, so Im behind on this. But I did find some goodies for the '29

I wanted to line the inside of the box with something to keep the rattles down. I was gonna use carpet, but then I remembered these foam letters I picked up at a yard sale for a couple bucks. I was gonna use them in the garage, but never did. So I figured I'd use them in here



So Ive been randomly glueing them in the box. Should work fine, & really spruces up the interior!




I'm a chopper guy, but since Im not riding one this time, I'll bring one along





the worlds first harley with a winch????



waiting for the new seat, I had my friend Grigoriy at Bad&G customs make me one from the stock pan. He does all my seats.

And, I have some decals being made for the outside of the box.

Its alot of fun to ride. I'm really happy with it.
So far.....
