I remember the TT500 - a great bike. I have mixed feelings on riding mine offroad, but after I photo document it in its current condition, im going to ride it offroad and I know eventually it will go down. Its a dual sport and I made it to ride it like that, so I'll hope for the best - but expect the worst. I don't look forward to posting "those" pictures some day

As far as the tank ever getting dented....us Studebaker guys say "if someone built it once, we can build it again" It is only metal right?

Hey Jim,

It was a pleasure meeting you yesterday in Davenport and seeing the SC3 in person. I'm not usually a fan of custom bikes - maybe because you don't see many of the off-road variety - but yours blew me away. Design, materials, colors, everything was perfect. Truly a stunning machine. Well Done!!!!!

Thanks! Good meeting you too. That was a fun ride up the coast and even got off road a bit at pigeon pt and Artichoke road. Feels good to finally start getting it dirty

I like how you call that getting dirty How you Cali boys keep your bikes so clean is beyond me. If that bike spent an afternoon in West Virginia it would be covered in coal dust in every nook and cranny that never seems to come off...

Lookin' good as always

I mentioned before that I was having studio photos taken of the bike to document the "new" condition before I began riding it. Here is one of the pictures from that. The photographer is Neil Hanshaw and he does some amazing work. We'll start posting the rest on our website soon.

Jimmy, I had a question, I hope I did not just miss it while reading through this thread, but as far as I know Harleys all use 1" handlebars. Did you use some kind of 1" bars or how did you mount the 1" diameter controls/throttle/clutch/MC onto 7/8" bars?
