Englishmen, I have not . I am gonna take it for a ride its not terribly floppy thats a good sign its close. Your bike really looks good with that sugar bear it put the wheel it the right spot, I read your article about it I would like this bike to be a rider , maybe thats the next step to measure and see where its at.
I was never a fan of goose-necks until I saw Bozi's stuff. Definitely an eye-opening, mind-changing experience.
Loffer, yours ranks right up there as well, at least to my eye. Damn fine looking scoot.
Englishman, that's the best endorsement for a Sugar Bear front end that I've seen yet. I'd have a hard time believing that simply changing from one springer to another would make such a radical difference to a bike if I wasn't looking at it right here with my own 2 eyes. Fantastic.
Thanks guys fired it up after some confusion with the timing pin placement it is running nice. I got my powder coating in and bought a Ness prism off the board here so I will see if that improves the look or not.
Got this prism tank but it didnt fit so i modified it . Went to a 19" front wheel with coker 4.00 matching the rear tire. Not mounted yet. both wheels are getting gloss black PC so no point in adding the tire yet. Handlebars/risers are gonna have to be changed and im gonna drop the headlight another couple inches to lower everything but i think I like the Prism ... I gotta remember to turn on the other light so the pictures arent so crappy.
I welded the tank with a mig welder , pressure tested and no leaks, haha ... In fact the whole things done with a mig welder . Lets hear some feedback on that tank...
