'Dawg, I truly appreciate your attempt to mediate.

Excuse me 1bmwfan for my incognizance of your reference to the Jo Momma thread. However, I DO know what STFU means- pretty aggressive, vulgar, and oh yeah really classy on your part there 'fan.

Hey Mats,

She sure looks stripped down and sleek. Can I ask what you've done? More photos?

Thanks Dawg! I haven't done a whole lot, headlight is a 7" Lucas from a older Triumph. Turnsignals are smoked lens LED's from DRC. I use decals for the tank instead of the OE badges, also the knee pads are from a '69 (I think) Bonnie. Mini speedo from XSMikes, and flat track bars from Ron Wood. Mirror is a 3" custom hung below the bar, works great! Rear fender is cut both along the edge (radius? translation problems..) about 20mm and the end was cut 80mm or so then made flat for the home made light bracket. Rear light is LED "Edge" from DRC.

For next year I've added YSS front and rear suspension and remodeling the headlight brackets to get lamp closer to, and lower on, the fork. Redoing some electrics, moving the parts around a bit.

Here is a pic from this summer when I had knobby tires on it. That was great fun on the gravel roads! Cheers! /Mats

Mats, I'm loving what you've done to your bike. I've been thinking about trimming my rear mudguard for some time, now I've seen it done the hacksaw will definitely be coming out. Good job!

The fender edges were cut with a metal scissors (?! don't know correct english name- fell free to enlighten me!). The metal in the fender is very soft and pliable so it's easy to cut, and to straighten the edges after cutting.

Nice job, Mat. It's nice and uncluttered. Love the custom mirror too. I may steal a few of your ideas, if you don't mind.

Thats encouraging. As soon as I've bought some new indicators and a rear light (mecatwin do some nice ones) it'll get done.

Please go ahead, I've stole most of them myself!

The turnsignals and rear light I got from Wheeling Cycle Supply.
Links: http://www.wheelingcyclesupply.com/i...AAAC-13925.jpg this type of rearlight resembles a up side down old Lucas style I think!

The blinks are type 601, they look modern and too angular for the Scrambler but the smoked lens ones blend in very good ON the bike= they are hard to spot!

"Tin Snips" used to cut the rear fender?

First, you jump on a guy for bashing your state then you turn right around and do exactly the same thing to someone else. You guys are gonna get spanked by the mod and sent to YoMomma if you don't settle down. This thread has went too good for too long to end like this.
