This is the start of my project,mostly mock-up playing with ideas.I got started on this because of an accident I had when a bull calf ran into me and laid me up,or should I say out.Anyway there was damage to me and my DR so I started changeing things around to suit my taste.I ride lots of highway and do gravell as well.I am fairly slow and learning to do this computer stuff so bear with me if you are interested.

headlight mount,This headlight I found in a junk pile out in the bush,it is from an old 45"Harley that I carefully opened up to fit a C-Bee headlamp in the bucket with a Piaa bulb.

Awesome, I like it so far, a real dirt dog that actually has the capability while looking mean as hell

Thanks for the nice comment,I'll try to get some more photos posted soon.I call it my Wolverine Bike 'cause it is kinda like a dirt bike or scrambler with an attitude.

Off with the zip cut.I looked at the sub frame for a few days wondering how I was going to make my ideas come to reality.Now there is nothing in the way to distract me.

Now I have some struts to mount the rear fender and a spot for the ECU.The taillight took a lot of work adding aluminum to the base and reshaping to get it to fit where I wanted it.
