How does that front end ride?
Well...it rides like 1930"s technology it tracks true and is well constructed but a little heavy and clunky, but i have to work on the rake and trail adjustment a bit, that will improve things alot.
And your welcome!

Special thanks to Darren Williams of Liquid Illousions for slappin down
the paint, and to Rich Phillips for tooling the seat.

so i see Rich Phillips tooled you seat... did he also build you that Leaf Springer? if i remember correctly, he was the guy who got ripped for a shoddy build job on a front end.

not trying to stir the pot of speculation here, just curious. i have always been interested in those front ends.

Yep it's a Rich Phillips leaf.In The first two pics the bike has a prototype (one of the first he built) on the bike. I used it for mock up till he was finished fabing the new one that you can see in the third pic.

i usually don't care for sporsters. but your stands out morbius. probly one of the best i've seen... nice little bar hopper that i wouldn't mind owning and you did this one just right. for what it's worth(which ain't shit) i like everything about it. sweet bike dude and if it's stroked and dialed in, i bet that bitch can scream like doing her from the backside, greek style.

Here is my old Shovster I had back in the early 90's, Viper red paint had just hit the market then and I had to go with it.
