All of the So Cal deserts are getting hammered with thunderstorms and flash floods all this week. I am listening to massive lightning and thunder right now as I type this. It is maybe 10 miles away. I hope it heads this way..
I love a good storm once in a while.

Anyone heading to any desert anytime soon in So Cal {aside from killer heat} should really check conditions. I have been getting at least 2 EAS warnings everyday for 5 days now.

I was thinking gasser wagon when I saw that front end- sweet ride. Have you thought about a mounted spare coil on the bike? Setup for plug and play for either cyl would be a sweet CYA move. Did the same on my old rock crawler with coils, fuel pumps and ignition modules.

Good idea!! It was a stock Sportster coil and those aren't reliable on a stock Sportster, but they're only $14. The Dyna high output coil is supposed to be pretty reliable, might get a stock Harley coil for a spare though.

Took it out over the weekend. Love the new suspension, need to dial in a little more pre-load on the back, front is perfect and planted, bottomed out the back a couple of times.

Hi Andrew, must have missed you at Lanesplitters the other day.

Here is a slideshow from the latest trip, got 48 mpg...might open up the main jets one size, although I was following a super slow guy on this trip.

I'm working on my own Cyclops zombie... maybe done this fall, we shall see. Removing the beak gives a hint of what's to come, and also exposes "different" handling at highway speeds.

Cool video!

I'm glad to see you're still enjoying the monster you created.

That hot tub had some killer views!!

Maybe I DO need to check out DV, in the winter of course, too damned hot for me otherwise. It does look beautiful though! I'm jealous!

What a great read! Just went through the whole build. Great helpers along the way too.

Now for a Guinness and a cigar, afterwards I'll check out the ride report.

Thanks for sharing. I'm sure I'll see you out on the road sometime. Cheers to you all who helped out too.

Thanks!!

I was actually able to sell or give away every single left over part. I'm going to have an extra pair of standard GS seats soon, if you need them for your project you can have them for the cost of shipping, the front seat needs to be recovered and needs fresh foam, the rear seat rides good but has some funky spots on it. I should keep the rear seat as the base is handy to bolt other stuff to for a snap in modular type of thing, I have a rotopax fuel tank on one already.

I also have a cool oil window retainer that a fellow inmate gave to me to give to somebody and I haven't found that person yet, but it might be handy for a guy putting turbo pressure to one of these clunkers.

If I remember, the latch for the rear seat is held in place with one sheet metal screw. But maybe that's the plastic cover on the underside of the latch.
