Very nice!

What does it take to reverse the rear brake arm? a new cam perhaps?

- Siebenrock 1000cc pots & pistons
- custom made stainless rear frame & seat
- extended swing arm
- HPN rear brake
- Öhlins rear shock

The shock mount in the picture was an experiment.
I had the Öhlins rebuilt later, so it is a bit longer now and the extra bracket on the swingarm is gone now.

Yes, the cam is different.
And I think the shoes are a bit modified as well.

You can buy a conversion kit from HPN but I bought the final drive complete like this so I don't know exactly what's in the kit.

Nice G/S... was this a local purchase? There seems to be quite a few G/S's around Seattle... counting yours and mine I know of at least 8...and if you allow Portland into that count it's now 11

not actually

It was in flee market a few months ago out in Knoxville TN. Flew out and picked it up with 45K on it. Rode it to Toledo OH to see the folks then out to CAL to visit friends. Now home. I don't think it burned 1/4 quart of oil in 5,000 miles. Needs some TLC. Thanks for the compliment. New learning curve for me as I have tons of time working on oil heads, but these air heads; back to shaking sticks and chanting for me! At least until I get my mind around it. I am learning that if I don't screw with it, it works out it's own problems. I might actually have to name this one.
