    These are a few photos of my latest build; I won't bore you with how I found that metric nut.

    Looks very nice. Is that a custom swing arm? What forks and wheels did you use?

    The frame is from Richard Pollack (Mule Motorcycles), the tank is a custom aluminum for a HD XR flat tracker, the forks are Yamaha R6, the wheels are from Ray Abrams (A&A Motorcycles) the engine was disassembled and the cases polished, the kickstarter was removed and several farkles from Mikes XS650 were added. The stainless exhaust system was fabricated by a friend of Richards in L.A. The rest of the custom fabrication and wiring harness was by yours truly. It's nice to have a customer that want's a motorcycle thats done correctly!

    You're bike is beautiful. Great work. Will you have to remove the exhaust to change the oil?

    Wow. Just, wow. I have a serious soft spot for the old XS bikes, and this thread just feeds that addiction.

    Just a quick question about the front end since I've been looking for a spoked hub that will accept dual discs on the same radial forks...:D

    What hub? (checked AA site, not sure) Looks like the dual flange hub with a fabbed rotor adapter??
    What rotors are you using?

    Any fab work to get to fit?

    You basically read my mind for my next project, little scary really:lol3
