Exhaust showed up today, so of course I had to try it out!

I like it. I'd ditch that stock tank too, and I'd probably build an exhaust that is taller. I like the looks of that 90 degree twin.

Way cool, I had countless miles in my 82 750 which was my first street bike, now every time I see one I want to cafe it or something.
Keep the build coming!

Thanks, if I had the skill to build one, I'd have a high exhaust very much like my dad's CL350!

Thanks, I can count how many I put on it. About 6200! I rode it all the time, but I never really went anywhere. Now, I ride that in a couple of months usually.

I am watching for a chain drive 920 next, that would be nice. Also finding another $150 1000 would be good for the starter bits

And, the wilbers is mounted. I need to figure out some nice clamps for it, but this idea works. I think I'll flip it over though so you can see the adjustments on the reservoir.

My buddy did some welding for me last weekend.



When I got it back home,I tested out a seat I had laying around.




This week before leaving for Mexico, I tested out the battery box and did a little grinding and drilling to mount the M-Unit
