I am enjoying it, swapped the bars and grips today, waiting for my bar end mirror and new air filter and it should be all sweet!
After a Diavel not sure any HD will live up to performance. Enjoy your new ride
i posted up in the show us your sportsters thread, i'll post one here when the mods i am in the middle of fitting are installed, still waiting for my mirror and a/c medallion to arrive.
The bars were more fiddly than i anticipated, the switch block with the hidden switches made it a challenge!!
Just saw your bike in the other post, that paintjob looks awesome!
Yeah the darn hidden hand brake switch was a pain... the guy I gave it to swap the bars ripped that switch out...so I've had to make a makeshift switch till I swap it. :|
Yeah they're rather wooden, not sure if i'm just expecting too much or they're not bedded in properly yet.
When i picked it up i was surprised at how much bite they had, either i'm more confident and riding faster and asking too much of them or they're not bedded in yet, or they're just average....
What thing$ can i do to improve them? i have seriously good brakes on my other bikes so any help to improve them would be appreciated.
Nice looking bike C/d, brakes probably still need bedding in a bit but you can make things better with the usual different pad material,
braided lines, calipers etc BUT you will never be able to approach a bend hard on the brakes like you do on the Diavel.
Steelo this was a 'Custom Project'.
I like very much and in fact miss all my projects once they go to their new homes.
I have 3 on at the moment. This was just one of them.
I have a DynoSB in the works and a SL280 Mercedes about to start.
so mate, no offence, but. you highjack my thread with a for sale ad on project bikes you build and then sell on?
