This build is on a couple other forums, but hey, its Sunday afternoon and I am drinkin, so may as well join a new forum!!!

    When I brought her home. 1990 softail custom with fat boy tins. Bike also has some cams, screaming eagle ignition and short shots. Pulls real strong for an 80".



    Pulled off the rear end

    That is some heavy duty calculatin you got goin on that chalk board. What is that the reentry speed of the space shuttle????

    Hahahahah, its not that fast Hubbard!!! After all its just an 80" evo. But it pulls pretty good and I probably dropped a 100 lbs off the bike and I have real breaks now. Its just a rat rod cruiser really, but fun as hell

    But re-reading your post, i thought you were asking if the bike was fast. now im not sure hahahaha

    Ok, I appreciate the photo man. Do you mind if I expand upon it for my build? I was thinking of a spanner nut to tighten down the top triple that has a similar shape to yours. From there, a “cap” would go on top that would interlock with the spanner nut (think male/female relationship) and be locked down with the bolt in the center. Your bike has been a large inspiration to me considering they are of the same generation of softail and you made the gsxr swap seen like no big deal. Thanks for your help and any further input you give

    I like the Honda better than the HD because he nailed the classic Honda "look" while updating the components. Nice work.

    I'll say it, I like that thing. Like a fucking lot. Its a wild-ass idea with a pretty stalwart execution, and you clearly ride/rode the ever-loving shit out of it to bend things like that. What more can you ask for?
