    Speedster finished

    She came out kind of looking like a toy rather than a racer. That’s the way builds go. They take on there own personality. Not too bad for under 1200. Tried to upload start up but it wouldn’t upload?

    once that alloy front arrow starts wearing through it will have a certain roughed up look
    good choice on the frame color

    Looking much better on your wheel discs, may not get through Bonneville's tech, but they don't look like they'll be the death of you any longer. In my thinking you should tie your forks together. You're putting a lot of stress on them, in multiple directions, when you are riding on dirt and that's a pretty heavy bike.

    Personally, I wouldn't have spear points, at balls height, on anything I own. Life has taught me that, generally, if you leave a sharp edge it'll bite you later. I know that what's left of my ass at this age, would not enjoy that seat set up. Might want too rethink your shape there, maybe more along the line of Harley's dirt trackers seat and tail. Personal taste aside, I'd ride it 'til my ass was sore.Name:  hd-xg750r-flat-track-1-thumb-960xauto-63500.jpg

    I just want to see a pic after the blocks on that front tire grab the point of that fender/number plate.
