I made the lower fender from a sheet of aluminum - cut it to shape with tin snips, then made a mud flap from an old tube... Came out better than I though - cheap too

Been watching this build since day one and am so impressed with the quality of everything. So nice to see people who can do things the way they want and have it turn out like I'd like it to!

Rare to see a bike with a larger rear brake disk than front too

Yah - looks funny too! - The front brake doesnt work very good either. I have a 320mm rotor on order. The rear is a heavy massive set up - not sure what to do there yet. Id like to find a nice small light aftermarket caliper and rotor - need to start looking for one.

It's looking good!

I hope mine comes out looking half as good as some of the ones I've seen on here.

Im a bit of fuel hog. I really don't like gas stations much. So I'll have a 4gallon cell giving me a total of over 7gallons. Should have a nice range but will make the back of the bike bulky looking. I'm hoping to have it ready for my Ak trip. It will be easy to remove later if I decide I hate it after the trip.

Air flow !

Just got a tip from S.C. about possible lack of airflow to the front cylinder due to front fender blocking air flow - his suggestion of using a vented fender is a good one !

I'll either give this one a try for fit (looks good too ! ) or put some holes in mine.

Thanks !

Lowered Pegs !

Just received the peg lowering brackets prototypes - installed them and here are the notes:

General - The new position feels good while seated. Standing position is much better - dont feel too high anymore.

Brake Side:
- Install worked - fit is good, but need to move one hole .020 - fits though.
- Master cylinder is flat horizontal - better for bleeding brakes.
- Needed to remove one of the exhaust springs to clear the lever rotation - should be fine as is - spring is very strong.
- Lever "may" need to be trimmed on bottom side to clear exhaust - but mine worked fine. An easy mod if necessary.

Shifter Side:
- Needed to bend the thin lever to clear the case. This was easy to do, but the bracket now looks like crap - will need to design and make a form fitted lever for this application - I have the idea (will also make it more stable), just need to design and make. For now, it will work though.
- Tie rod needed to be bent to clear the case - I did two bends to contour the case. Looks good like this. Length was fine as is.

I plan to pass the design to Chainsickle so they can "improve" it for production and offer it to others if they want it.

Here is the brake side:

I, too, have been following this monster since the beginning. I am soooo jealous.

Awesome bike, Jimmy.
