Test run. The stainless exhaust i tig welded in sound crispy. The coasters and carbs were built like my other daily and has just the right amount of crackle to it.

Good stuff bro, that thing sounds sweet. The white looks real clean too. You did all that work pretty quickly.
So is there an “8th” in the works? Lol

I’m sure there will be a 15th. Lol. These are fun to build. Lot’s more to do to this one yet, then I’ll be focusing on my daily. I want to do things differently than he wants so i can get some ideas of how this rides when done and decide what to do with mine.

This one will get custom forward controls and stretch the legs out. He is getting pretty tall and gangly so he will grow another 2” probably and he is tall as me.

Here’s how the new frame design fits the fender, quite well.

How do you make a rear fender tuck on a non rigid? You design new mounts. This video will explain how it works.

Yes do it with bushings so you can tighten the pivot bolt down. Awesome idea

Warmed it up and rode around the block for the first time. It rides very well, but will need some carb adjustments. It’s loading up pretty quickly. No biggie, runs great though. Really nice deceleration crackle.

Thank ya! I have enough parts to build another on a scratch built frame, but I’m gonna need a title and it’ll be all VN750 parts so i wanna build it as a vn750. Anyone got a dead bike they wanna get rid of the title to? I’ll throw a few bucks towards ya. I’ve been wanting to do a stretched frame.

Wow that was slow shipping. Anyway seat is here.

Check out how i made the frame in relation to the seat. I did the frame over a week ago...... without the seat. Perfect curve to the top. I’m going to be changing the hinge on front to sit lower, but this is the jist of it. After it’s final mounting I’ll be making the covers for any space. I have an idea for under the seat, think accordion. Soft black material. Now, all that said i may not use the springs at all. Those are for hard tail. Depends on what he wants.
