Hey don't break off the other foot because I asked a question! I thought it was like a lucky rabbits foot or something...only on a bigger scale.

Not a criticism, just a question...
Looks like your exhaust (as cool as it looks) is gonna cook the rubber bits in that left shock, no? ?

It's a 250...it won't cook anything.. all good. Nice looking project.
Who makes those grips?What tire is that?Your chain is too loose?Where can I get paint and stickers like those?

Ha thanks for the positive comments. This pic is a few weeks old and the chain has since been adjusted. The shock is all metal except for a rubber stopper but I don't really see that becoming and issue. Exhaust was an aftermarket slip on from a cB450sc but it sure looks an sounds loud so I put a baffle in it. Still loud. The grips are bicycle bar tape wrapped in leather strap. The tank is original paint and graphics but I hand sanded it down to a nice finish then Beard clear coated it.

Calling all cats!

The Virginia tag is in your neighborhood...

Retro said whoever figured out the obscure clues(to say the least) to post up the answer, so I did. Its a long story that goes back a couple pages.

That is a KLR. A much easier way to lift it would be just to spray it down with water , let it sit for a day and simply sweep it up into a dust pan.

Tires are Shinko, right? That's all you run.

Some drunk hit it (probably a neighbor) and it layed in the road for a week until I saved it. It goes nicely with the zoo, stop, no left turn, Arlington Blvd , Glebe Rd, constable on duty, Baltimore police and no parking signs. Beards collectin is much more explosive and nuclear on nature.

Shinko 705
