    Hey guys

    With a 50" wheel base and proper trail angle of the head coupled with a Felt springer fork. Very comfortable at speed {35mph} and not wound out. The Brookes B190 saddle which went in and out of production is a huge asset to riding comfort. Maintenance ? Modest I would say. Quality components...

    Hi from the UK - INDIAN Board Tracker tribute, my first build

    I'm liking it Pete! Electric start going, just to tidy up a bit? Seeing how robust this build is, your braking choices I envy. Your fuel tank build with the spun ends. I have a text book on metal spinning. Scares the pee out of me. :D Tom
