Looks like someone shops at Fab Kevin's ;) . Damn nice bike for being built from "leftovers".
i love the dually caliper set ups, seat kits and the tagbrackets.
and kev is great to do business with thats for sure.

the left overs:
solid rear wheel, 200 frame, DNA springer old 21 front wheel, 883 tank

motor and trans were on other projects over the past 1-2 years. actually trans was loaned to a friend so he had something to ride for a bit.

Nice bike! You got any pics of the side further back? What are you asking for it?
thanks for the good words...

not really trying to sell it here.
a) didnt think most peeps here would be into it
2) i aint crating and shippin it ya know!
c) trying to catch some local peeps attention at the show and ask some coin to fund my habit.

people can PM if they really have to have it

how well does the bike stop w/ the dual caliper on the rear and a spool on the front?

thx!
ed
well i use rear mcyl caliper to actually stop. (allowing the proper following distance required when running only a rear brake)

but im a big sissy and like to have my cheater caliper when im on hills and keeping the other foot on the clutch.

on the peterbilt bike duallys came in pretty handy, when i needed to stop REALLY QUICK at a high rate of speed and my rear mcyl caliper kind of went "soft" i was glad i had the other one as a backup.

jesus... you built THAT from spare parts?

sweet
as noted before the roller was spare. trans was in another bike to get a friend through a couple of months.
i mean who runs solid 180 wheels these days? yikes! and 200 frames? blasphemy.

you start out thinking im just gonna throw some POS together and move it.
but then you get going and you start really wanting to make it something nice.

then you hear prospective buyers start saying,
"man it needs a fatter rear tire, white walls and header wrap...."
"is there any way to keep the jockey just for looks and make it foot shift?

.....then i want to eat a bullet.

im quickly changing to "forget it, its not for sale." but man ive got some cool plans for the money.

so for now im just in the somebody better come with some bucks feb 4

Holy shiteicus! Two 4-pot tokico's...with braided lines!

I'm not being a smartarse, but did you do that just for the hell of it?

I can lock up my rear by just breathing on it....and that's with a shitty little caliper.

Just curious. Looks pretty cool though

just remember "he who writes the check is always right" (at least until you cash the stupid fuckers check) ;)
