Well that depends on the font design...



...and i clearly see difference in the "a" and "o" from "Davidson"!

So, no misspell here...
in the Worst-case scenario is just different font design than usual.

Bike looks outstanding! You rarely see a sporty pulling off this kind of look.

Do you have any detail photos showing your front brake master cylinder, guessing it's remote? And can you show how the lines run?
Thanks

nice, the fat front wheel and lower bars really makes it look older.

i really like what you did with this sporty.
nice clean work and good build photos as well.
good to see people around the world that seem to 'get it' more than most of the kooks and fake 'bad boyz' here in the states.

That is a beautiful bike. I love that fat front end. Good work improving on an already nice looking bike. Now post some pics with your girlfriend adorning it, it's always nice to see tasty treats from around the world.

I like it, but I’m partial to springers anyway. I like the way it looks now; you did a good job.
The jockey shift without the foot clutch has given me lots of ideas too.
I have a few question about the differential brakes if you don’t mind, I’ve never seen that on a street bike,
Is this diff system garage built or a manufactured system? Do you know the ratios front to back?
Thanks for posting the build from the start to what it is today.
