Yeah. I traded the 16" straight across for it.


Thanks for the compliments, I'm pretty stoked with how it turned out.
Hopefully, I'll be riding it down to the Roundup in a couple of weeks.

yeah it looks really sharp with the new color and a sweet solo seat there but for some reason my eyes keep getting drawn to that front fender and 21" tire under it....i am not sure its because its a really cool look or because it just looks wierd....its going to take some more looking and a few of these friday night brews to study the situation more....for sure though it will get heads turning and others talking....nice touch...

It's gonna get some stripes, for sure. Probably a real subtle flat gold and maybe some black.
When I put it back together, I debated on whether or not to put the front fender back on. It looks cool either way, but I think it looks a little better with it on because of that huge front caliper.
