I like it but one question where are the brakes?

No, there s no rear brake as its not really used much anyway, and for the look it has a single galfer rotor on the left side of the wheel.

This is a cruiser not a racer so one disc works just fine.

I like the whole bike, stretch and all, but I absolutely fucking hate that 330 tire. It's a shame because that's a gorgeous bike without that monster tire on the back. It's just my preference, but if it's anything over 240 it's too big IMO.

Alot of people say that but I personally like the 330 because its the same width as the tail of the bike, im not a fan of skinny tires. I almost did the 360 but I think I made the right choice.

Thanks, it rides pretty rough cause it has a solid link in the rear right now but im going to probably revalve the stock shock and maybe respring it. Turning is not great but not terrible, its probably about what you would expect.

I love that color! Reminds me of Nassau Blue for Corvettes. I was thinking if I ever painted a bike I might go with Nassau Blue. Your bike isn't my style but I certainly appreciate the work that has gone into it

This may be a stupid question but.... I've always wondered on stretched bikes what the turning radius feels like? I mean is it strange/very slow going through twistys or do you avoid them all together?

It is pretty strange, especially at first. That big back tire doesnt want to let the bike lean over very much so your kind of forcing it and trying to not spill it. It feels like a wide slow turn, thats how I make them anyways, and yea I avoid what I can lol....

No its not practical, no its not fast, yes its uncomfortable but its mine, its how I wanted it, and I love it.

If you ride that, which is unlikely, it really is a good idea to give that literbike more than one brake to stop itself on..

anyways, i like the color.

At least put on the other front brake rotor. 1k needs more stopping power unless it's just a main strip (less than 50mph) cruiser.

But if you're not going to put the other rotor on take off the brake caliper mount.....show off that front wheel more.

1. Blue color looks good but is a really blank canvas. Needs something else to bring the bike and black together. Black tattoo airbrush or something like that gator skin texture would look good.

2. Take off the rearsets...........got the solo seat on and seriously don't see standups in that bikes future (no rear brake)


All in all a nice bike....just needs more to take it to that "next level" custom look you are going for.

I am living in Minneapolis temporarily but when the bike gets back to Florida after the summer my good friend Bones who paints all the choppers for Eddie Trotta of Thunder Cycles is going to airbrush it for me.

I have the solo seat on right now but ride with a passanger time to time so they will stay.

bike is sick. Love the blue. Im getting ready to help a buddy with an 08 litre bike. Hes planning on a shorter stretch than mine (12 over) and keeping stock rear tires. Other than that hell lower it and paint and powder coat but thats it.

Side note: hes 5'9'' so lowering is a must if he ever plans on coming to a stop. He can barely tip toe a stock height bike.

I live in the Minneapolis area too, that thing has to be fun in the pots holes and through corners here in MN!

Sweet looking bike though bud! I dig it all, not what I want, but think it's sick! Good to stick with what you like and not worry about others.

While it's not for me, it looks great for what it is, and you must be really proud of a bike that is uniquely yours.

Yeah some of the roads here are just a disaster. I ride alot in uptown and downtown its pretty damn rough some times. Turning isnt as bad as most probably think, just takes some getting used to.

I ride Uptown a TON! We must have passed each other before. I hit up Cowboy Slims for happy hour many afternoons. Free motorcycle parking there if you didnt know. Hit me up if you ever want to ride or meet for a beer there. I'm sure i'll roll though there today after I get done at 3pm.

I really like it for what your using it for. Love the color. But I find it hard to believe your just gonna cruise around on a ~160 hp bike. That would be too tempting for me, I would have to throw the other front disc on just in case. Well done

Thanks man, I dont need everyone to like what I do, I mean hell I dont like most of the things that alot of people do and for me, stock is not in my vocabulary for any vehicle. I am going to be airbrushing the bike soon so that should break it up nicely.

Like he said "to each their own" and that is the key. If that is what you like, then who gives a flying beep beep beep what anyone else say's. My philosophy is rock what you love and everyone else.
