    ..anything in particular..?

     
  • Tony says:

    A lot of work and design went into the fabrication of the oil tank and swingarm

     
  • Linda Ackley says:

    Winner on all counts. Manual labor, forethought, planning, design, functionality, fabrication. Bravo!

    Cool bike! It’s been a while since I’ve seen a chain drive on a bike like this..

    Slick solution for battery and electronics location!

    The remark about looking “like crap” is NOT from a biker. You can install a light Lithium battery (3# about) in any position. Oil tank can be inside the frame, etc. This is a very good rendering to boost everyone’s liking including whose he set out to do, including his design. A rolling functional “billbord”! Loverly! LQQKs clean.

    A fine result on a great project, one yourself and your boys can be proud of. I have ’98 1200S that needs a birthday and have always been intrigued by this kind of oil tank relocation. Any pointers, actual tank capacity, any need to or problems with priming or has it been just fill and go?
