    Overall i think it runs great! But it might be a wheel bearing or something that needs replacement. Something feels a little… not right can’t really point it out for sure tho

      Your vicla/cholo build came out looking “chingon” badass! You definitely put your abilities, creativeness, and inspiration into her, congrats! I have also been following Bnag0’s rebuild…..between your 2 builds and the expert advice and research I have done from this here clinic I have decided to redo my own vicla/cholo RS with Harley split tanks and only primer for paint until I can develop painting skills like yours…. My project is stalled due to new baby and pissy toddler, diaper changing, etc….so daily I try to wrench on her at least 1 hr on my rebuild….. and I am stuck on rebuilding my carb for the 7th or 8th time….anyhow, eventually I will prevail even I I have to take the carb off my other RS in order to keep moving forward. Again, awesome build!

      Wow!
      Thank you solo! It makes me really happy that you like my work that much.
      As i said before, it´s my first bike ever.. So getting feedback like this makes me eager to get another project Since i had a deadline on this one, i think i could have done it better if i did´nt had to hurry up like that.

      Anyways, it really gladdens me to know i´ve inspired someone else!
      So again, thanks alot man!

    Finally got them turn signals there.. was not really just to bolt them on either lol.
    Dark smoked lenses and re-wired them so they work as orange positionlights as well. I know you american guys have like that, probably original.. But in Sweden we’re nåt allowed to have orange lights forward

    Well, im happy with it, thinks it turned out real nice

    Great write up and build. I like it. I have always like ape hangers, white walls and fishtails look on these bikes. Real classy and I really like the paint job too. Does your rear fender hit the road on larger bumps? Here in NB Canada would surely be wrecked.

      Thanks man! It’s really fun that people appriciate my build
      Yeah i love the style to.. 100% the most badass look for a bike

              Great weekend with alot of ridin’, a little windy (tired arms lol) but overall great weather
              Anyone else that think the streetglide looks kinda.. small?

              on my way back home the clutch cable broke.. just my luck.. but of course (since i now have bags) i allways carry some universal cable with me, so made a new one at the side of the road

                Dang, I'm impressed! Lose a cable on the road and you've got a universal spare that you can build on the spot? I'd be trying to figure out how I could jam gears to get myself home, or just calling AAA to get me to the nearest shop. Nice job.

                Bike's definitely got a unique look, like a throwback to earlier days. I'd like to see it in person, but Sweden's a tad far to go just for an up-close-and-personal! Enjoy your ride!!

                Midnight ride: yeah, allways! Costs like $5 at the local bicycle store, using bicycle brake cable for clutch, and gear cable for my gas cable

              Wtf, halv my post went MIA

              Yeah, well.. Guess i don’t have to tell you it get pretty much attention
              Not only at bike meetings, can’t go in to my local grocery store for a minute without people standing by it while i get out

              If you would change your mind, you are welcome to try it out
