Man, that thing would be a rip to ride. Probly come close to an R.I.P. on it, tho. As for the bottom pic, I wouldn't turn down a ride on either one.... just sayin'.

Regards

That needs the 160MPH speedometer upgrade.

Yep. I was wondering why he went with an 85 m.p.h. speedo on such a build. Maybe he kept the original, or didn't know about the retrofit. A 160 unit would say a lot more about the bike, though.

speedo

Yep, I agree the 85 speedo is wrong on that bike, nothing like a 160 speedo to display fear in the hearts of other bobber folks. Would love to hear an audio of that bike fired up, it looks like the builder knew his tuning stuff to the max......very nice overall, I hate to see an xs original mutated but at least its a clean build,,,,,SO Who is buying it ? Ride on,,,Mike in Sun Diego
