The only thing I don't dig is the sprung seat on a swingarm bike. Otherwise, I love how you cleaned it up and didn't hardtail it. Details?

Yeah looking for something to replace the springs with, I am thinking about using bushings off some skate trucks or something. The scoot is an 08 sportster, changed the rear fender since this year had a big ass hole in it for the motors brain. Had Chicago Chris lay down an awesome paint job (he is an artist) the tank has a slight 2" lift so that i could move most of the harness to the top of the backbone. Relocated the coil from under the tank to the side between the jugs to clean up engine area. Changed out the risers for some 4" Springer risers and threw on some RSD vintage bars. Moved the speedometer from the bars to the side of bike using an Auto Meter tach mount. The headlight bracket is from Toxic Choppers, I was not to fond of the eyebrow mount that was stock. Lowered the rear with 1" lowering blocks (probable will switch this out for 10" shocks from Licks at a later date). The seat is from Licks Cycle (West Eagle pan with Licks bracket). thatís about it for the big stuff.fficeffice" />>>

Cut the swing arm off the 2nd of September - worked like a madman to get this back on the road and luckily got help from 2 buddies.
I plan to break it down for paint and some minor tweaks this winter like the electronics i stuffed into the little tool bag at the last minute. hhaa

BEFORE




AFTER








foot clutch/tank shift
