Nice...VERY nice.

I have been working on myself, and I don't think I have posted a pic in this forum, so here is a pic right before I finished the headlight up:



With that, as you can see in the pic, I am need of some different mufflers. What can you tell me about those peashooters you've got ?

I wonder how much track offset this bike has??? I'm trying to fit a 140 on the back of a /7 with a 3.5 inch rim and it's a really tight fit even after offsetting the engine and swingarm to the right, modifying the swingarm driveshaft housing section and offsetting the rim to the left. It looks like this bike has a 150 0r 160 on a 4.5 inch rim. It's must have at least 3/4 to an inch offset to the left of the front tire. There is no way in hell that this bike tracks straight. Anyone else fit a 140 or larger on an airhead?

How does that effect steering/handling?
