Hey Brin usually "newbs" have fairly standard lookin bikes when they pipe in but I gotta say you have done some mighty fine customizing to that there sled.
Impressive.

Hey hang on a minute...is that a do-rag you got on?? I see it reflecting off your toaster.

LOL so he did. I don't know where I got that from but it does explain why his bike looks so well customized. ( thinks I might need to get glasses )

No, that's not what explains why the bike is so nice. Not much of it is really "new" ('cept maybe that battery mount) but his particular taste in combining various elements is what makes it nice. Super duper nice.

thanks guys. with out seeing pics of certain elements of others bikes on here, i wouldn't have been able to picture how certain things would look together. john, i'll submit the bike to you by the end of the month hopefully. there's a couple drastic changes i'm planning on first. if everyone's gonna see it i want it to be seen right.

The bags! Those saggyassed bags!!! I've been looking for bags like those for ages. I've looked at everything from new to yard sales - Where did they come from? The back rest is interesting too. I'd love to know where you got the metal stock and a drawing or sketch with dimensions. Yes, the bags and backrest - that's what makes her so sweet. I, too, rarely comment on others bikes - but she's a honey. Those bags. That backrest. Geeeeeze! Ah, did I mention that I'm just a little blown away by those bags and backrest.

I have old back rest very close to that one ..in fact it's off a old triumph trident t160 looks just like that one in the pic but he has reworked that one.. on his bike ..

but any way you can have it..I will bring it with me to the NorEast Rally..

i guess i just kinda lucky on that stuff. i found the bags used at a used parts shop along with the backrest on the same day. the bags used to be quite a bit longer and lower but i cut them down the middle then stitched it with some leather lace. the back rest matches up perfect with the back two holes on the fender brace but does need some spacers and a little love to make it work. i also have some bag braces behind there that you can't see. the bags just clear the rear sprocket enough while sitting but with any amount of speed get better. sorry i can't tell you what kind of harley they go to but if you take measurements of the distance of your back two holes you should be able to find it. so you know, furthest back of the two holes that attach isn't a hole but actually a slot. so i attach the front bolt, then pry it open a bit while sliding it down onto the back bolt. maybe just show a pic of the bags to some kind of bag expert? they can't be that uncommon. glad you guys likey.

Well first Brin, I'd like to say thanks for that excursion through my ol' stompin' grounds there. The camera seems to work very nicely, too.

And secondly here I'd like to say...

IF YOU KEEP RIDIN' LIKE THAT IN SOCAL, AND ESPECIALLY ON THE 405 LIKE THAT, YOU, YOUNG MAN, ARE NOT GONNA COME CLOSE TO SURVIVIN' LIKE I DID ALL THOSE 40-PLUS YEARS OF RIDIN' MOTORCYCLES ON THE STREETS AND FREEWAYS OF THE GREATER LOS ANGELES METROPOLITAN AREA, AND YOU WON'T EVEN COME CLOSE TO GETTIN' TO THE AGE WHERE YOU CAN MOVE OUT OF THAT AREA AND RETIRE TO SOME QUIETER LITTLE TOWN LIKE PRESCOTT ARIZONA!!!!!!

Okay, and now that I'm a little more calm here...here's ya a few suggestions in order to attempt to make it to my age of, at present, 59:

First: NEVER cut across that double/double line which separates the Diamond Lane from Lane#1(the so called "Fast Lane")like you kept doin' in that video.

Secondly: NEVER split traffic like you did AT THAT SPEED in that video when The 405, or ANY freeway for that matter, has as little of traffic as The 405 did there! And besides, you should've just been HAPPY that The friggin' 405 was as light in traffic as it WAS there! 'Cause, as I'm sure you know, THAT was a RARE OCCURRENCE!!!

Now, if you might need any OTHER suggestions as to how to stay alive on those streets of L.A., PLEASE feel free to ask me!

(...just tryin' to give you the benefit of my many many years of experience ridin', AND SURVIVIN', out there in the "City of Angels", kid!...I DON'T wanna see YOU end up bein' "an angel" way before it's your time, ya see!)

Just curious as we don't have car pool lanes, aren't you allowed to go in and out off that lane then?

As much as I hate to agree with Dwight, I was thinkin' the same thing.
Although, I wouldn't have gone into such detail. More like:
If you keep riding that that, you're gonna get some spectacular crash footage.

Only at certain points along the freeway where those double/double yellow lines change to one single broken white line, Bryn.

In fact, I can't tell you how many times accidents happen when Lanes 1-4 are bumper to bumper with traffic, and some moron decides they're going to cross into the faster flowing Diamond Lane where they shouldn't be crossing over those double/double line, and BAM, somebody coming up in the Diamond Lane gets WACKED. And, of course it's REALLY bad when the car that crosses over at the wrong place hits a harder to spot(as we all know) motorcyclist coming up in the Diamond Lane.

cut the little tabs on the frame a bit. cut off the tabs on the tank where it attaches and drill a new hole.

the seagull is now the eagle maniac.
finally finished my winter project. did the 994 big bore from tpusa. it was my first time rebuilding a motor and i'm very happy i did. took it all apart to the last bolt. replaced the main bearings, carillo rods, 994 jugs, pistons/rings, head work, fcr's. cases painted gloss black and covers powder coated gloss black. it feels like a wild beast and sounds like an angry buffalo. i have not yet received my remapped ignitor but when i do i'll get it on the dyno and report results. it already feels like night and day difference in power since i was coming from a 790.

i also made a kind of tutorial video on putting it all back together to give back to the site. i'll post that when i'm done editing it.

rock on friar john!!

yeah the clips worked pretty easily. you basically just have to re-bend a couple angles on it with some pliers. they'll stay by the pressure of the the headlight but i put a little jb weld on the ends to really hold them in place.

You must be doing something right, carry on. Just wondering, doesn't that one come OEM with that atrocious hot water carburetor spacer? I could never get the carb. to behave consistently. Other than that, I loved the one I had.
