    She likes riding in the hack better than on the back of the CX.

    Lovely wife and fantastic bike. Would it be inappropriate to ask for more shots of the bike and the build?

    Totally appropriate, but I dont have a build thread. It's just a mild conversion of a 2004 Suzuki Savage LS650. Pretty much just: 17" rear wheel, DS tires, longer shocks, new subframe, new seat, a few performance upgrades and a whole lot of powder coating.

    It's a work in progress, we determine what she wants as she rides it more. Pretty sure we will leave the forward controls, as she likes the comfort on her knees and would never stand up on the pegs anyway. She liked the comfort but hated the cruiser turn in, so longer shocks and much wider bars helped tremendously. We might change the front fender for more coverage if it proves an issue. I've also got a more scrambler-esque GT185 tank that we might fit and paint eventually.

    Thanks for the compliments. Hope this isn't too much of a thread hijack :)

    Cool. I noticed the forward controls, so that really piqued my interest as to what was going on. I got my start in motorcycle doing just the opposite, turning wrecked dirt bikes into chops. Parking was expensive on campus, and registering custom bikes was easy. I didn't even have to buy shocks if I made it a chop, so that's what we did. I haven't ridden a cruiser or chop in ages now, and find myself constantly looking at bikes like yours thinking "If I could make a shortypants dual sport out of that, my wife would love it."
