Some really weird things going on here - but I kinda love it.
I have a friend who swapped out a /2 engine for a /5 engine because he got to where he could not kick start the bike. The /5 had electric start.
The Earls fork bikes are darn good handling bikes despite the drum brakes and poor shocks.
They make a perfect sidecar rig, and a lot of the engine swaps are done with that in mind. St.

I am surprised by the number of "cafe" bike shops now in existence building one off bikes for bespoke customers. At least, one segment of the younger generations are still interested in airheads.
A done right job, is a thing of beauty, wether it be a simple engine swap like my friend's /2 with the /5 engine or a radical mod bike.
I get the shakes when I see butchered bikes. St.
