  1. I saw your bike on bikeExif.com and have to say.. as a completely non-Harley guy... that is one fine looking bike. Very tastefully done, so good in fact, it's a shame they don't make it. My only change would be to shorten the rear fender more, but that's just me. Fine ride.

    Hay Rob... I'm glad to stumble across your finished project. It was good to talk to you about this at MIAD as you were building it. I'l have to send you photos of my 1972 Yamaha DS7 after I figure out the charging problem and I get it on the road. Adam Meurer

  3. AMAZING!!! I want one!

  4. Brilliant! Inspiring to see a classic reinvented with a contemporary vibe. Timeless, I love it!

  5. what are you suspension #s for this thing? i love the stance and would like to get mine set up similarly. by the way love your bike

  6. Love it; feels like a flat-track hybrid to me. And yes HD needs to build these!

  7. Excellent work dude. This looks better than factory. They're right, Harley should look at this and maybe employ you.

  8. again and again and again... BRAVO!!
