Bravo! Very nice. I'm not much of a fan of the new and old mix, but it's spot on. If it was mine, I'd change the...uh!..hmm! no, maybe the .. nah! or the..no that's perfect too! Not a damn thing!

looks great man. all changes for the better. Especially the strut taken off the springer looks so much better with out it. I dont think I'd like havin' the brakes tied in together though. Do you notice any disadvantages of the brake set up? (braking in turns etc.)

Well, I dont usually brake wile cornering... but when I do, it's well balanced.

The only time I'm in trouble is in traffic... up hill stops and when I have a passenger along that tends to unbalance the bike for the right side where my foot is braking. hahaha

Apart from that, it's ok.

Very cool bike. I like the way you cut down the cam cover so much better than the way everyone else does it. It's got style. I wouldn't change a thing.

Before 40º rake...



Matching the wheelbase...



Checking fitment with fork...



Having fun...



Checking new rake of 31,5º...



Fitted in frame jig...



Welded in frame jig...







The name "Suicide" has a theme context, has also explained before.
