    yeah looks good, but dont know why anyone would bother with the expanse ??

    Dont see the point myself.... put that money with the price of bike and buy a real one, or a sporty at least.....

     I agree it looks great but why bother on a 500. Because the engine is not what is seeen on most Harleys it could be mistaken for a yamaharley

    But that is impressive work walka and it is certainly unique. I would rather ride that any day of the week over a stock 500.

     Pretty sure that's Luke's bike and he got 68HP out of it so better than an 883 and pretty much the same as a stock 1200.  Not bad for a LAMS bike.  FYI its undergoing a 2nd rebuild due to being crashed.  He also makes 1 off exhausts.

     I am with you on this one, some of the mods on these bikes cost shit loads but I suppose it was the

    same when we were younger driving shit heaps, we still spent money on mag wheels, paint and interiors

    only to smash the fuckers as we were still learning, the bloke doing up this particular bike is I think trying

    to turn it into a business, I think he is a welder/fabricator or something and manufacture's bits and pieces

    for the 500s, he is turning that 500 into a 750 I think, he also supplies cams for them.

    I reckon fucking good on him. The bike looks awesome. It's his money he can do what he likes with it. It might inspire a few other young blokes to have a crack at modding them. Half the fun is changing them and there also might be young blokes out there that would jump at a 500 like this that would otherwise walk past one. Blokes like this should be encouraged not shot down because it ain't a big twin for fucks sake.

    A 500 in my view is a stepping stone to a bigger bike, same as a sporty for about 90% of Harley riders or for a woman to get on the road with..
    My view stands.
    As walka stated this is a bloke paying to get this work done, not a fabricator. Put ya money towards something that is worth moding for fucks sake.

    Tough crowd. When people have a dig at my choice of bike I just remind them that I don't give a fuck what they think, I enjoy it and that's all that matters, isnt that what it's all about? They're all bikes, they're all fun, who cares what others ride. Just enjoy it.

    Yeah who gives a fuck, certainly not me about the bike or what others think of my opinion..
    It is only an opinion and I think we still allowed to have one in this country ain't we?
    Only just, apparently

    Hats off to the young bloke for a having it modded. My son is seriously looking at buying a Street 500 he's got almost 18moths before he can ride open class. Doesnt want standard, likes the "old shcool" style. He'll be following this bloke I recon,,,,,,,,,,,,,

    You'd need deep pockets to follow that bloke I'd reckon unless you could do the work yourself. And I think thats chrisos point in that it costs a lot of dosh to do something like that for a bike thats likely only to be held for a short time. Bit like buying a boob job for a girlfriend you know is only a short term thing

     On a group ride, wasn't there but saw the photos of his face on FB.  Nothing broken other than the bike so he's building it again.  Good on him better than doing drugs and all the other shit some of these young blokes get up too now days.
