Nice bike, but what happens if he gets a pebble stuck between his rear fender and the tire.?
I picture a little more clearance when I build mine.

So a scrambler is a bike that is not really off road like a GS? Then my bike fits in - this is not a show piece,just a bike made to work in this environment.

According to some online dictionary:"A lightweight motorcycle equipped with rugged tires and suspension; an off-road motorcycle designed for riding cross country or over unpaved ground"

I think your bike fits perfectly...and I almost copied your seat...

Rear fender? What about the front fender on most all of the bikes in this thread. Fenders are the tip of the iceberg. I look at these bikes and wonder why most of them have a big giant front tire that makes them handle like crap. I know. It's to make them look like flat trackers but the only reason why flat trackers run front tires like that is because they have to for the rules. It goes back to saving money by not having to buy different front and rear tires.

Most of the high pipes you could get by with sitting down but stand up and lean back like you always have to do in the dirt and they are going to roast your calf(s). I have to take off my lift handle for it bruising my leg horribly while riding in the dirt. At least it wasn't burning hot!

We have some lookers and some doers here. The great thing is that the doers can out look the lookers if done right.

+1 Some great looking bikes being shown but I have only seen a couple that I would trust in the dirt and in my opinion a true scrambler is meant to be ridden both street and dirt and not just look pretty.

(motu you have a nice scrambler.)
