    Can't be worried with replacing the brake lines and possible not even add a brake light. You're doing it wrong custom bike builder.

    we really need a vomiting emoji. I mean every other forum has it, why can't we have one here. Sometimes there is no other expression than a smiley face letting go of some icky green stomach splat.

    I hate almost everything about that bike. The one thing I don't hate are the dual piston calipers which sadly are honda's doing and not the owner. As someone who has pancaked a DOHC cb750F I can tell you that thing must handle like flung feces. Why can't these people just find something else already? the next thing I am not looking forward to are the "Darryl clones" that are stating to show up and people calling them cafe racers. ugh.

    it is NOT you. people expect dirt bikes to sound like popcorn two strokes even if they are build out of big heavy 4cyl 4 stroke superbikes.

    The brake light is on the left side, just didn't post a pic of it. Still pretty weak build. I wonder what the reserve is? Worthless pic, sorry

    I see this bike is in San Diego. Maybe the fellow who posted on here that has $3K to spend will get it. Does look a little better than that XS400 yamaha he was considering.

    But, how much rear suspension travel does this bike have? Maybe an inch? I wonder if the rear fender is attached to the swing arm so that it moves with the wheel/tire. that is how the "soft tail" type suspension is set up, Correct?

    Guess I am just a crotchity old guy. Form before function just makes no sense to me anymore.

    the fender is hardmounted to the frame, you can see the bolt heads. FWIW with the exception of the the "rocker", HD softails have the fender attached to the frame as well and not the swingarm.
