Playing around with the bike today. I removed the ultra cheap bars that were on it and installed some protapers with 2Ē rocks risers. Iím much happier with the way these bars feel. Still waiting for the headlight to show up. Local shop says next Thursday most likely.

New bars look fantastic. It really is a cool little bike and HOOT to ride.

You need tassels though.... more tassels

Nothing beats having a personal moto stylist on speed dial. I went back to the black grips. You were right CJ.



Just took one inch off each side of the bars. Much better now.

Tires finally arrived today. So did the headlight, but it had two dents in it from bad packaging/shipping. Its going back and hopefully the replacement wont take two weeks to get here! I'm pretty happy with the shinkos. They look good to me, changed the stance of the bike for the better, and it rolls/rides much more smoothly now. I might be able to actually ride this thing 850 miles in a weekend with these tires. Plus they are super easy to put on the rim. Much easier than a Maxxis Desert IT.

So new headlight, some wiring and a small front fender and I'm calling it ready to go. I'll get new rims if the people at Woody's ever call me back.

Those grips/tires are perfect. Nice project!!!

The melee has an option lost coast usal road loop often...It'd be a shame/waste if the might 'macchi did not complete that section too. Typically ratty Triumphs etc run it.

Well I did some more work today. Got the headlight mounted and did the wiring for it and the taillight. After I got it done I took it to the Harley shop in Penngrove for a Brake and Light Inspection, which is one of the main hurtles I needed to clear in order to get a plate. Should be easy now. Woot!

LOL! Yeah it does sound pretty cool, but I think I hear the screams of 1000's people who wish they had better brakes! Twin leading edge front brake showed up today, so when I build up the new wheels I'll be installing it too.

Swung by the DMV and they want to inspect the bike one more time before I get a plate to, "make sure its a motorcycle." Okedokey. They did give me a one day moving permit, so I'm planning to ride it there for the inspection.

You have done more to your bike in 3 weeks than I've done to my Guzzi in 10 years... Got some back burner issues that should be addressed..I always say I'll do it over winter, but never do..but I'll probably procrastinate again.

So I rode the bike to the DMV today for the inspection. Several hours later I left with temporary registration for the street and a pile of paper to return with once I get insurance and I receive my original title that they want back before they issue my on highway title. All good news.

The bike was super fun to ride and I quickly adapted to the reversed foot levers. Not sure what will happen in a panic stop situation but whatever. I think I will want a more quiet pipe eventually and I'm going to do some research on gearing, because it seems really low right now and I want to be able to survive on the freeway ocassionally.

So I guess I'm almost there and can legally ride it on the street now so the real testing and improvements will begin.
