Hey , Well to be honest ...it was seeing your Dyno that got me into this whole damn thing in the first place !! Man you do beautiful builds ... Kinda what I thought because of the gusset . And anyone who hasn't road one of these or seen one up close doesn't really know how great they are made and welded .I really feel bad about cutting it up ,but it's such a great bike with great lines I just cant find anything else that compares to it . I was going to go for the exact look or yours with the frame mounted tank but I like the apes and a higher tank to make it fit me better . Thanks for you input man !!

Another added bonus is the frame is made out of chromoly with some of the best welds I have seen on a bike frame.
