It is rewarding to see it all come together. I'm thrilled it's ready.

So this bike has the 250 and you like it better ?

Funny. The guy who's buying my p-pad just de-raked his Ridgeback and says he loves the handling. So Tire-vs-Rake....... :)

Hopefully he'll post an intro showing off his work. It's an interesting modification.

We are all sitting in our seats for the video of you starting the bike up and driving down the road

Sorry guys been busy with work and getting the house ready to put on the market in October.
Getting close but after getting everything together and bleeding the brakes multiple times we had to pull the the master cylinder apart due to leaking brake fluid. After looking things over it appears that the chromers (probably) didn’t seal the master cylinders enough during the process and it looks like it damaged the aluminum inside. I think curtis is planning on doing a post on how it’s going to be repaired. Sport chrome has been really a great shop but lately they haven’t been all that (customer service ) and my rear brake caliper is flaking in a few spots. I may be searching for another chrome company in the future but for now going fix the issue to get it moving. See attached photos of the damage inside to the aluminum, I do not know the condition of the cylinders before but I wasn’t having any issues with the brakes before it was chromed.

Sorry for the troubles Paul, that cylinder looks pretty bad in the pics. I know you and the Kaptin will get it figured out :chopper:
