    Put me on the list for this kit whenever it's really. I've been waiting along while for it, but it looks like it will be worth the wait. Keep up the awesome work.

    Apologies if I have missed it- Will your kits fit the 2004-up rubber mount bikes?

    Im not sure if they fit on the 04's up - i havent checked to see yet, but want to. The parts will fit the '93 to '03 Sportsters - all have the same frame & motor during those years.

    Once this build is done and kits are ready, im considering doing other bikes in the similar dual sport style - like the 04's up or even the T100's look like a good frame/motor platform to start from. We shall see...

    Im down to the small stuff but its about attention to detail now - finished the new rear blinker bracket. Also found these LED blinkers from Extreme Dual Sport. They have flexible supports.

    Install pictures to come...

    Cool! Were working on it. Were shooting for Oct 1st to begin taking orders. Hope we can hold to this - lots to do.

    We'll have a new website as the name Scorpion was used too much in the motorcycle biz. A front page with some info is up now, but more coming.

    Thanks Much Larryboy! That was a good time seeing all those old bikes ride in. Here's a pic of RTWDoug's bike. I like how he rolled in with a cig in the mouth. Good thing there were no fuel leaks :bmwrider

    Well, today was our target to open the Carducci Dual Sport, LLC, doors for business, but were still a few days off. Just small details to wrap up, but details none the less.

    I'll post here soon when we go live, but we will initially do a Pre-Release limited production offering for the ADVrider community and will do that on the Vendors thread before our website is up and running for the rest of the world.

    So, stay tuned...:ear
