Your bike look really good.

 Those tires, see them a lot nowadays.. How do the y handle?, and how is the stopping power?

They handle like s*&t!  They really look the part but they're an old design for a reason.  On the street they handle fine (pavement).  Many of the freeways here are rain grooved.  So at about 55-60mph it develops a speed wobble that doesn't disappear till the road surface changes.

Thanks!

That is a really old tread pattern as well,you won't see any modern tyres with a tread pattern like that because they are prone totracking like mentioned with the rain grooves....

That they do!  A lot of people in SoCal can't drive to save their lives...so you can image how many more accidents there might be if they didn't exist.

 ;) Not quite. Others might say they have...they're called new tires...LOL!

your bike is beautiful. nice work! I really love it.

The one in Corona/Riverside? Off the 91 freeway? I've stopped by that one before to check it out. It's sad to say but it's true about other forums. This forum is very friendly and informative, even when folks disagree; they agree to disagree and thats that. No poop talking or peacocking needed. Your bike would be a hit I think. Maybe when it comes around again I'll ride mine over too. She's not as pretty as yours but it's all good.

yes, the SOHC forum is the best thing about the WWWeb. very cozy and inviting with tons of people brimming with moto knowledge. some other forums are just plain unfriendly.

Great work.  You have some real skills.

Where did you get the shortened clutch and throtle cables?  They look to be the perfect length.

The headlight was worth it, really makes a unique look.
