    Buckhorns look proper with a skinny front wheel and a sissy bar. Like a chopper before apes were cool.

    The poor Pirelli Angel GT‘s weren’t made for this. This is why I prefer tubeless rims.

    Lot of dirt roads, fair share of rear punctures.

    Another puncture repair, getting pretty good at it now.

    Conti does a 180/55-17 TKC80 for the rear but not a 120/70-18 front in a tubeless. At the moment thanks to covid there is no stock available in those sizes in Australia and no eta on new stock arriving. It’s hard to get the popular adv tyres here in Australia.

    I was able to get a pair of Pirelli Scorpion Rally STR’s, just had them fitted and we’ll see how they go.

    I used Heidenau K60 Scouts and TKC80's on mine before converting it to a Trike.

    But $4,900. Oof.

    I have my eyes peeled for one, but the Covid tax is in full effect still.

    That is a pretty nice one, though. Probably too nice for my intentions.

    yeah it's a nice example but he's at least $1K high. However the market being what it is right now they'll likely get the $4900.

    For a "showroom new" bike with 2600 miles?
    Sounds fair to me, and a decent value.
    If someone keeps a bike (or car) in perfect shape with low usage, I think they deserve a premium return when they sell it.

    That price is definitely not out of line at all for around here.
    Me personally, I wouldn't go to Chicago if were $490! :lol2

    I would, even though it’s 1,400 miles away!
