EDIT: For those that are interested here is Jimmythehog's build thread. Definitely a MUST READ!

JTH's 883 Dual Sport'ster Conversion
That's whats great about these forums - lots of great info and pictures are shared from all over the world. My bike is better from it having learned a lot here and from other forums.

I'm close to finishing my second SC3 and will post some pictures in the weeks to come. I have a deadline to finish it for the Quail motorcycle gathering in a few weeks.

And I owned Billdozers old EZXL for a while. It went through a change right before I got it, kind of away from the original dirtbike feel and more of a street tracker look. Either way it was an awesome bike with more cool details than most full custom bikes I've owned. He did a great job on it and aside from an exhaust change I really couldn't improve on it one bit.. I miss it a lot and after seeing this thread kinda want to move my bike that way again.

That front wheel is badass!
