Love the knuckle mate, its sexy 8)

Only thing I would do, would be to change the air filter to something smaller.

Just my view.
Trees and bikes are alike...
You can CHOP EM!!

If this bike is being built as a new custom bike (ICV), under the national code of practice, then the bulky filter housing may be needed to pass the noise tests. After registration...well, no-one else seems to keep the restrictive filters ;-)

Looks like it will be one cool lookin chop when finished &
probable way more reliable than a old engine, go harder to I bet :D
Was going to say that blue running through the black on the frame looks good but when I enlarged the pic I saw it was plastic covering.
I thourght it may have been like this red-black I saw on a Dodge, it would look great on a frame but no idea how they do it.

I know they're not exactly thick on the ground, but there are full repro knuckle motors from a couple of US suppliers and I know of one motor in QLD that sold in a rolling chassis a month ago for $AU9000.

I'm not trying to be incendiary, i'm just being honest. :wink:

More kncukle looking bikes the better even if they are re-pro
However i agree with ben about the air cleaner...to bulky and needs a sissy bar too!

That's really elegant Mal

I love the front calliper shape. Springers are always beautiful.. And yeah, cool lines.
