i don't understand what you don't understand. how's it look like it will "pop out" of anything? It works beautifully and has never once been a problem anywhere...even on some real rough roads.

As far as being dangerous as fuck...thanks, lol. Thats what we were going for. You think that looks bad, you should see the rest of the bike...

Dang it. I know... I thought I'd try though. Looks like a creative use of a Silver Wing... I've seen a few of those done fairly well. If done right, they've got a neat Guzzi look to them.

Ill send some pics when im done

My guess is that it is over-engineered for liability sake. If they give you plans that are very tight tolerances and you build it and kill yourself you could sue them. You can thank lawyers for that. These all look wicked.

You could post a pic of that bike with your engine blacked out.

Mine is a modified Paughco The front legs are double twisted stainless hex stock. forks from auction site 120 + 45 shipping. Stainless 19 gas wire etc, 15. So a little over 200 maybe.



You gotta watch it twisting stainless though it's more brittle than cold rolled and you can only twist about 1/2 as far.

Not sure why anyone would pay for the plans when they are free on the CBH http://chopperhandbook.com/neatstuff/springer-a.htm

I think I saw pics of it in the Horse. Nice bike but I didn't care much for the switch box . Are those high lift jacks made in China?

What did you use for the legs? Im assuming solid rod but what grade steel? I was thinking of doing a set for a Zuki Digger Im building. Thanks in advance.

Had a machine shop do it for me @ 75.00.
