    Welcome to the forum. Are you planning to ride it on campus?
    The roads were very narrow when I was a student there (decades ago).
    It would be interesting to see if my motor bike could climb the hill from Grant Field to the Skiles building. Cheers

    I like the custom backward fender....I have used the front fender as the rear fender... adds character....
