thanks dan !
the first video is -not-me-, but was the fella that sparked some interest in this thing y'all are really good at, apparently. memory serves the bike was a no-name, with a pirannha engine, and 3 speed stick shifter. that jug was his fuel reservoir, and had cool cam skewers and even a windshield. sorry, i don't have more specifics. we were about to head out on a chilly morning of DS ride n camping in the talledega... ssshhhhh, secret location ;-)
anyway, i'm gonna cruise around your threads a little and glean what i can.
