    I woulda rated it higher but its a work in progress and by the look of the parts you're heading in a great direction!

    MMMM....Sportster. I wonder what the new Indian company will come up with for competition? Looks good, but appears to have "small tank" syndrome like mine. Are those drag pipes?
