    Lucky you gave sprocket tooth numbers but was wondering what sprockets you used and where you got them

    Sorry about the bum deal on the trailer. Hopefully the commission will investigate and put an end to the sale of these unsafe trailers. Good luck.

    Damn, I am so in love with the stance of this bike. I have wanted to do a rigid frame Roadie for years. I didn't know that anyone was selling one. Did you have to do mods to the frame? Did it come with all the tabs and brackets needed to mount the motor? Will the stock front end fit, or did you have to get one that would fit a Harley?

    When one of the reviews said it was flimsy I wish they had went on to explain what that meant.
    What it meant was that the main C shaped channel was too light and would literally twist left and right when the bike was strapped down !

    I have reported it to the Consumer products safety Commission.
    I am waiting to hear back from them.
    They asked me to hold on to it for 30 days.

    Hopefully they will come look at it.

    It tilted the hitch on the the ball too. It would be too dangerous to go on the road!!! Not kidding. The rating was for 750lbs.
    and my bike is only about 500lbs. The trailer will have to be re constructed completely! Do NOT Buy ONE of these trailers!! The name was Ultra-Tow Single rail Folding motorcycle trailer 700lb. Capacity.

    I have rescheduled the DMV registration for Sept. 10th. I think I will just get a permit to ride it there.
    Great looking bike/build Lucky!

    Glad you decided to not use that trailer, i read some of the reviews and was concerned your bike wouldn't make it back from the DMV! Too bad companies continue to market crap when they've had complaints and know there is an issue...

    You would have to ask Cycleonemanufacturing about the measurements.

    Hey Lucky, looking good there, man. I have somewhat similar plans for my 19-year old R*... Would you be willing to share the numbers on your frame geometry as you have it set up there? I am trying to pin down the final setup and it helps to see completed bikes with the same or similar specs.
    Thanks

    The color of your pipes has nothing to do with the timing.
    If your pipes have no heat shields they will turn colors.

    Hi Lucky'
    I have a question on your Dyna3000, where did you set the timing curve at on the switches I had mine at the suggested 32 deg and the pipes turned instanley red changed it to 36 and seems good,just wondering

    Thank you Duke!

    Yes that would be helpful.

    I am writing a email to the Consumer Products Safety Commission so that the trailer cannot be sold anymore.

    EDIT; The Consumer products Safety Commission said I should keep the trailer for 30 days. Hopefully they will come to look at it.

    Maybe by September it'll cool down a little.
