Hey Bama Guy's/Gal's,

When I return home to Huntsville, I hope my new project bike is complete... or should be real close.

Here is a photo of the KPS project bike.



What you guy's think?

The bike is in Florida at the moment at Highlander Custom Cycles. I'll be back in July, plan on getting it mid-July and riding to the Homcoming in late July so I can ride in the VTX 1000 ride to the Honda Plant.

Much more instore than what you're looking at. Working on new rear fender, softail, custom one-off bars, custom seat, and a new breather!

More photos in a week I hope!

Finally got the rear wheel, Brown County Swingarm, down under brake bracket, and Morton's XRIODS bolted on .... working on the bars and other special pieces... such as a new rear fender... this one sucked!!!



The tank is now being worked... we just put on another one that was in the shop when I was at Highlander.

So close to perfection... Partner, the only thing keeping that scoot from being perfect is the fact that my name isn't on the title... :( Seriously though, she looks incredible now. She'll topple buildings once you're done with her. Big Time Kudos. Ride safe my friend. 8)

Hey fellows.... My "X" is going to paint this weekend! here is the tank in it's final primed state prior to paint!

We also made quite a few changes when I was in FL last week in July, things like peg mount location, extra sheet metal, etc...! You can see more photos on the main thread to this project at:

Looking forward to meeting many Bama "X" riders at the BBQ... though I'll be on my Valk!

Thanks... POGOGOLF, the air intake is from Velocity 2 Extreme and looking into the breather is the air filter..., looks like a small turbine!
