Never argue with a moron, they will drag you down to their level and beat you with experience.

I like my bikes to look ridden and my tools to look used.

AWESOME is the only think I can think of to describe your build. I love the indy car looking brake cooling intakes on the side and I've never liked a nose cone until now. It fits the bike perfectly. Totally origonal, looking bad ass man!

Looks like it's going to be a great build...good luck. What size tire are you running? I never seen a tire that looks like a 300mm with a left side drive.

So four years ago some crazy nut went through a red light and ruined my pristine TL1000S, and my body. I think my legs are pretty much screwed for life (I can still walk though thank god), but meanwhile I have a nice 1997 TL1000 engine sitting in my garage, and I started thinking about what I want to do with it. I don't really need to fix it back up into the sportbike it was because I have replaced it with an SV1000S, so I got to thinking that a chopper or bobber or something might be pretty cool with the TL1000 engine. So I started looking for projects with TL1000 engines. Didn't expect to find one. Yours looks positively fantastic! I would like to do something similar, or maybe something along the lines of what Exile cycles look like, but I'm not a machinist and the whole idea is very intimidating. Kudos to you for an incredible job.

Mad skills Bro, looks like you've forgotten more about custom building than most will ever know.

EXCELLENT...!

It was a picture of this bike that inspired me to build my first Chop.
I used a Honda VTR1000 and I'm glad I did it now.
Infact it was this TL that led me to the CC forum.
