Chicago potholes are unforgiving

This bike was on this site last year, but many changes have been made. I scrapped the xs wheels, and went with an HD rear solid mag and custom disc brake set-up. Front is a YZ 250 21″ rim that i bored out the fork tubes and ran a burly 20mm rear xs axle through (chicago potholes are unforgiving).

Biltwel seat had to go, to use this sweet West Eagle tuck and roll, as well as relocating mount back a couple of inches. Scrapped the Ardcore mid set-up and made some custom mids and little shorty levers, as well as moving them back a few inches. Rear caliper is Road King, M/C and brake lines etc. are Buell.

Rez is hidden in earl bag. Got rid of the windows and bolted up some threaded Front Street Cycle T-bars with hockey tape grips..

Overall the bike is now a much more comfortable ride, and way more reliable in the braking department. Big thanks to my brother for all of his time and effort.
