The ONLY thing I don't particularly care for is the DNA (or whoever makes that style of forks) springer. Oh, and the exposed pistons. Lowers compression.

The rest is cool as fuck!

The rear section of your frame looks like it was welded on at a strange, downward angle. The axle plates look like they point towards the ground as opposed to horizontal to it. You are left with VERY little ground clearnce--I would make sure you mount your footpegs and exhaust nice and high to give you at least SOME cornering ability.

You could also go with an 18" rear sporty drum wheel with a tall tire like an avon SMKII, that might give you some more ground clearance.

You should be fine if you have that much clearance--the pic is deceiving, it looks like 2 inches or so! I am a freak about clearance, I like 4.5"-6" if possible.

Will you still have that much clearance with the weight of the entire motor/oilbag/etc. and a rider on the bike?

I don't think weld on sporty tail sections run straight from the neck to the axle plate. If it did, it would be like a 10 inch stretch.

Also, I have 3.75" of ground clearance at the lowest part of the frame, which, from what I understand is favorable when compared to a flyrite or paughco frame.

didn't like the blue after I did it. So, sanded it all off and started over. I am keeping this one. Rattle cans in my garage, I am stoked.
