one of the things i really like on this forum is to check out all the different bikes. most other motorcycle forums are dedicated to one bike, and it gets boring.....

your bike is one of the most well done ones i have seen here! i would have that in a minute.... i bet it's a great ride.....

if i could ask?.... how much does it weigh?.....

You did a great job on your rig and its nice to see that you are hitting some pretty tough trails with it.

Very nice job. I know what it takes because I built and raced one in 1977. Sorry I ever let it go. A good friend of mine raced your sister frame in the Baja 1000 in 1986.

Cool

Yep.....That was the bike that inspired me to build my rig.

A small but growing group of us realize what a great power plant the sportster engine is for a adv bike. A simple..reliable. ..very low maintenance motor..... with the best low end torque in the business..........and the damn thing gets 40 to 50 mpg.....on a gravity fed....30 year old carburetor.
