    Dude, it's like you are inside my head. :shock:

    I love the straight bars. I love the big 'n' skinny also. It looks amazing. Thinking of something similar for this bike.

    Only with a fat 26" slick in the rear and a 26 x 1" slick up front. I'll change out the fork to a flat blade, as I just came across a guy with a huge bucket of forks! The 24 x 3" is tempting, however. What size rim do those take again?

    time is getting thin but I am working at it, was going to work on mounting headlight and the badge but as I am looking at the bike that tank
    plate just looked like it was missing something so this is what I came up with...some of you will recognise what I used :mrgreen:

    so I went to the local radio shack and picked up a 4 aa battery pack and a couple 250 milyamp bulbs..did some pretty basic wireing
    and a tie strap mount...we got lights

    still not sure if the head lights will stay where they are but they do work well
    [​IMG]
    went kinda generic with a cat eye tail light I had laying around
    [​IMG]
    just some button up stuff left to do and its done
    while riding tonight adjusting the lights I here a neighbor say " what is that coming down the road "
    it was just me :mrgreen:

    Nice! very unique tank/light.
    It would be great if you could bring it down to the second saturday ride on the 8th.

    thanks again for the cool comments....you know I would like to come down and ride with you guys and lord knows I have made several trips
    down to Sac. lately but none were any fun, gas is really not to bad in my olds it gets 31mpg on the freeway !
    My problem is logistics all my trips down have been to take my wife to UC Davis for chemo :cry: and its usually just hit and run .
    So when is the next ride ? If I could make it I would probably be riding the 58 delivery its more my size and a comfortable ride.
