It's going to be a slow build but will post a bunch of pics. Really don't have the $$$ right now but couldn't pass on the deal.

Now at least a part of the pitbull will breath life again. :old2:

Exactly, I wouldn't have taken it apart again if the damn compression release didn't back out. Threads were stripped. I also think the karata will look better on the longer ridgeback and it gets rid of the stupid split tanks.

I've always thought your pitbull looks badass..
 
Just making sure things fit up before getting rid of the awful orange color. Still trying to figure out what I want to do with the color

Did the fork fit up tonight, not quite sold on the inverted forks and may be willing to trade for a stock setup??? If I keep them I plan on re chroming them.
They are a bit long!
What do you guys think???

Can't tell about the fork length but Personally I don't like the looks of inverted forks on choppers.

Did your rear pitbull fender mount right up?

Last question.....wheres the VIN? I noticed the neck isn't stamped? Did you get an MSO? I thought the MSO was 17 digits and stamped as well? Keep all your receipts.

My bad !!! Lol.. never had inverted forks before and they are long. Granted they will shorten once I put the guts back together and put some weight on the front end. Just wasn't what I had envisioned for the build.

Was thinking about doing something similar to the attached photo

Those forks look fine to me! Just couldn't help commenting on the pretty lady. Ya probably ought to keep her if she's letting you carry on with the build!

I wasn't a big fan of inverted forks either but they are bullet tipped and I really want to see what the look like with some weight on them. Open to trading for a stock setup.
Yes rear fender mount up perfectly. The ridgeback frame is identical to the pitbull frame except for the gas tank should be pretty much plug and play with some minor modifications..
The vin is embossed on the neck and I have all the registration paperwork. They guy I bought it from I have known for years. Once I get it on the road I have to register the frame with the motor.
Got to figure out colors and get rid of that hideous orange color...

Parts for sale soon, planning on selling cheap. Including the pitbull frame. Will post in a separate thread and on eBay.
