I finally got the thing set up the way I like it. Started building it last year and got it running this spring. Had some problems here and there but got them worked out and changed a few things. The frame is 8" stretch downtube, 5" stretch backbone, 30 degree rake. Springer front end is approx. 10" over. Jockey shift lever with clutch on the lever. Wiring is simple, 5 from the engine, 2 for the head light, 2 for the tail light, coil, and the circuit breakers and ignition switch in the middle. Fun as hell to ride and gets a lot of attention. Still needs a few little things, but I'm leaving it bare metal. F*** paint and chrome, who needs it?

Wasn't this for sale on E-bay a couple months ago?

Yes it was on Ebay. Still have it though. Was trying to get the funding for a Shovel I was after, but that one has sense passed.

It ended up being a bad tire of all things. I thought it was trouble with the front end, or harmonics running through the frame from what people were telling me. I didn't know being that this was my first bike with a springer. As a hunch I swapped the wheel and tire from my Dyna on the chop, and it completely went away. The Dunlop tire had a cup in it, enough to make it run out of balance at high speeds (even though it was checked on the balancer twice) I bought a Metzeler tire, problem solved.

3 Guyz customs in Oregon made it, but they quit doing them because of lack of demand. Kind of sad, because its a damn nice springer. Very nice quality machining and welding.

Your bike is awesome but that ratchet ass jockey setup is sketchy as shit. I couldn't imagine starting off with one hand all the time. how are you supposed to do burn-outs and wheelies?

better off just setting up a foot clutch, my man.

Who made the frame? I'm digging the proportions.

Maybe in your opinion, but not mine. The reason it made it the way I made it is because its the way I wanted it, not what someone else wanted, its my bike. Led Sled made the frame

It looks like you're running both brakes off the rear MC. Are you running a proportioning valve at all?
