    That is a sweet lookin' new-classic sled. Congrats!

    How's it ride? Gotta be fast with all that extra weight stripped off. What PSI are you running in the rear tire? Reduced, or using the seat alone to ease the bumps?

    Only thing I'd change is the handlebars, but that is not a criticism, just a personal style thing.

    Rides great considering it's a rigid/springer. I run 40psi in the rear and it's not too bad. I built the bars in house, the style isn't for everyone but they suit it and are comfortable. Thanks
