    Running again after re-wire with a Koso gauge and greatly reduced loom. Still got a small 7ah battery under the seat which does fine (no starter).

    This is my old guy, call him the Rusty Dog in honor of my pup how passed in the middle of the build.
    Frame was built by a buddy of mine having him do ALL the important welds while I did the welds that don't matter so much, paint and assembly.
    Uncountable as hell to ride but draws a crowd every time its out.
    Ran it battery less for a while but recently put one one due to capacitor issues.
    Thanks and good day all

    Hi Winmag and welcome,
    if that's Victoria BC won't you need a front fender because it rains there all the time?
    Up to you of course but I'd advise using a fork brace to replace the fender's stiffening function.

    Thank-you, hahahaha yea it's going to be a little bar hopper so eating some rain is no big deal, I haven't put much thought towards a fork stiffener I agree the front fender is beefy and does just that, I wanted to keep it lean and clean but also tossed the idea around of the old school front fender license plate (on edge) and if I do that I will incorporate a brace ! Thanks !
