    A larger front wheel? 21 inch maybe?
    If you shorten the main leaf it’ll bring the front leg back, and may allow you to skip the extra leaf.

      Yea I was thinking that too, it's funny how thing and looks change when it off the table and on the ground.

      Just a small update been real busy my son is back to racing so that has slowed the build a little but I did get the rear sprocket spacer machined to get proper spacing and alignment for the chain

      Ok guy's sorry I have been away family things and vacation gets in the way sometimes but I mocked up a new set of bars for the bike that I think looks better,because of the shape and location and the size of the bender die I wanted to use these are actually made in three pieces and still need a little tweeking but I got to stare at them awhile,tell what you think, if you like or don't tell what needs to be changed.

        A little less angle on the grip ends. That's what I don't like about the stock bars, to much wrist angle! JMO. Hope everybody had a good holiday!

          Yeh! That's what I'm talkin' about! I like that bar. I like a wide bar. I've put one on my bobber, and my two-rider, and I like wider bars. They're just so much more classical.

              So your wrist is not turned as much. Somewhere between a drag bar and the way you have it now. Never liked the way most stock bars have you turning your wrist out. Maybe because i have wide shoulders, I don't know. Never really heard other people complaining about the wrist angle. would like to have a set of bars that keep my wrist more inline with my forearm. I'm not sure if it would look better or not. But I would rather be comfortable more than anything.

                        Started fabricating up the oil tank/electrical box for the bike made out of 1/8" aluminum tank will hold approx. 3 1/2 quarts with another 2 quarts between the filter and oil cooler that is going on and the lines,electrical box will have a drop out bottom and will contain all the electrical and the M-unit and keyless ignition.

                            Made a little progress on the oil tank and electrical box and the battery box below the tank which is just sitting there not sure if that is where it will stay.
