That's a sweet looking ride. I like the relocated battery. Snazzy!

Nice one, but the "air cleaner"... I prefer the genuine one

Nice bike, but it seems to leak the petcock. Look that rusty stuff on the tank above it.

Not a bad looking bike at all. I'm also into the stock air cleaner. I figure if you're going to remove the aircleaner, then remove the top cover, saw off the top edge of the block by the starter, the top of the timing cover and timing chest, raise the motor in the frame...

I like that tail light.

Why is it so many people get the front fender on backwards?

Nice looking ride.... not usually a fan of painted engines, but the white tank with heavy striping pulls it off nicely... to my eye a little white curve revealed by a minimal rear fender would be good (maybe?), but hey, overall !!





PS Do you have a shot of the rear end, straight on? Would love to see the tail light/cowl/striping from a-rears.....

Is it all scratched up on the left side? You didn't even bother to walk around it?

I'll make that shot next time I see the bike (usually parked not far from my home).

Saw this too







And I don't know anything about this bike, only that it sounded and looked like a V-twin engine and Norton was written on it's tank.
