    What is the front wheel off of? Might want to consider a bit larger disk.

    Yep and it says so right on the rim:D

    Is that a 4 bolt rotor? Might have an oversized rotor, brake setup floating around.

    Yep it's off of the old XL. It's something that need to be changed for sure. It is indeed a 4 bolt. Man if you have a bigger rotor that would be great just name a price!! :freakyCan you imagine?......An HD that stops?! Figures that it would take Honda parts!:rofl

    Thanks man. :freaky

    Love that vid by the way! It's been playing in my mind ever since I got my grubby hands on this bike. I wonder how those guys at 1:17 feel about getting passed in a corner on an MX track by a relatively stock Harley?! :lol3

    Hello there,
    have you seen what your neighbour did/does with his Harley:

    I connected the second-last page (is this the right term?) to wetten your mouths. But the whole thread is worth a very, very close look!!!
    Kind regards, Bambi

    That video is awesome. I love people that just wanna have fun on a MC. I like in Lake Elsinore it used to have a fun spirit in the 70s and then after the revival also. When it ran thru the town down the streets there was always a few folks like the pig farmer in the bib overalls or people with blow up dolls strapped to their back, side cars, all kinds of fun stuff....it always ends up with people getting too serious. Especially after they moved the track to the MX park....no fun now.

    GB, post up some more pics. Many of us are still loving the build.

    I tried to talk the Delta pilot into stopping by your neck of the woods but he just mumbled something FAA regulations and told me to go sit down.

    So the Scramtster is going to need something in the way of foot pegs that are a tad less "slippery when wet" than the stock rubber wrapped deals. What to do, what to do? Wait....I know..... I can pillage my old pit bike since it isn't being ridden. Sorry little feller but I need yer' parts....:2cry


    Started with pegs that looked like this. Note the big spring spacer on the pegs....That's got to go.

    I also need to grind down the stops.

    A little off here, a little smoother there and....

    Several test fits and a bit more sanding and I have some real ,honest to goodness dirt-bike foot pegs. :clap

    Not sprung but they will fold up in a get off. :thumb

    Not sprung is not the worst thing, as long as they are not loose and can flop up easily. If your buzzin down a trail and hit a bump or hole and your feet come off the pegs and the pegs flop up, when you come down and there is not peg for your foot to land on....you get the gift of a broken ankle as it hits the ground at speed and rips back, under the bike....

    If they take a bit of pressure to flip them up, then that is ok.

    I re-used the friction spacer from the stock pegs. you physically have to fold them up and down. No amount of vibes will make them move.....which is good on an solid mount Sportster. :lol3

    Given my track record I am sure that I can find some other way to severely injure myself though.:deal :rofl
