Tis the season

Some new side covers, tank badges and finally the black brake reservoir for my bike.
I have some Heidenaus ready to go on after I have some wheels built.
My front wheel is pretty dented, so time for an upgrade there.
I'm gonna give TKC's a break fro a while, although I think they are a fine tire.

I see you never stop Max ... and our bikes slowly start to differ. Of course with the exception of Heidenaus - my set has been waitting since August - until the knobbies are done (4000 miles and they are still in pefect shape!).
But tell me one think: is that an oil leak & dirt on the frame uder the front sprocket? Because my bike did it after 7000 miles. The seal under the sprocket was done. Some say that my chain was too tight but I think it was good for the road conditions but too tight for heavier offroad....

Never stop satcen!
You may love my next mod.... in American style scrambled roadster (hint).
I am kinda of steering away from traditional Scrambler. I am not shooting for desert sled.
I do have a 68 Triumph in my possession which I hope to ISDT out. Can't wait to do that. I am still scheming it up.

On that goo at my countershaft sprocket. It is thick sludge, not an oily leak.
So far I have associated it to my chain lube, which drains (spooges) down the side. It never happend till I put on an open c/s cover.
While my 'no fly off' chain lube doesn't, it does spooge right after I lube my chain.
As in a very thick goo.
I would think an oil leak would spray or mist all over...?
I think, JMHO, the stock countershaft cover catches all the goo.

Thanks wildjester. I haven't pointed to my refinished badges, just seeing if people catch it.
They are part of my 'going back' thing I have going on now.

My tires of course (!) are TKC's, very worn and looking rough.
I have got 8000 miles out of the front while going through two rears.

Yes the Italian bike looks very good, right down to bare dirtbike form.

Thanks for the rear view of the high pipes.
Proof that custom is not always comfortable.
IMO high pipes should run back at the base of the cylinders.
Good looking customs they are though.
Form before function on boulevard blasters!

One thing about the Scrambler/Bonnie line is that they start out as comfortable riders.

But.... Keep up the customs! Some good originality coming out.

Sorry keep it simple, they came with the bike, I have never had a chance to check it out yet, the CDI unit went out right after I got the bike, so that took all my time finding one of those, if I find out I'll let you know for sure.
