Not being able to add pictures inside the body of the post is a real drag.
Forums just arent the same after photobucket.

Have you ridden a chopper much ? Set up right, you can do lots of miles.
 And you can have huge fun without being ticket bait...
 
 Laws a around here have really  killed it for sportbike owners. .

I have not done a tone of miles, but I know what you mean about a properly set up chopper.
Honestly I was shocked how well this one went down the highway.  I assumed it was only ever going to be good at bar hopping.

Sport bikes do get a bad rap.
A few that I have had really were zero fun at sane speeds.

Ones I have now kind of split the difference.

Need to finish getting the cases cleaned up, then painted.

After that I will dig into the crank bearings.  I would like to have new ones, but need to figure out what is available and what sizes I need.
Any tips?

Measure first, you may not need any at all.
