...to me this is very calendar worthy dude and his bike!!!!
Interesting build, not sure if it's been posted here previously.
Funny I just got here to post that SAME bike, Yah done good to show that.
What are those red things on each side??
Extra fuel containers.
They have them for water also
Kacey Elkins' bike was present at the Cincinnati "Garage Brewed" show (post 5).
Great concept, design, and presentation. Not the XS you remember as a kid.
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).
I like that exhaust you got there HC!
All I got was a rock.
Thanks, it's a stainless system built by this guy in Wales, UK.
I'm thinking you've got a "Desert Storm" theme goin' on there...
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
^^Pretty rad, Roon!
Interesting elbow concept on the intake-haven't seen that before.
Check it out , the young Australian gal who bought my 79F a few months ago sent me a new pic today to say all is going well ! Great news so I’m sharing it .

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 !
