i just lost a bet with myself I though a comment about the front motor mount was gonna be the first reply lol.

this is going to end up being a bike that mostly travels around to shows. not a whole lot of highway touring going on here. ive had the idea for a while and just decided to go with it, wont know until you try..

The front caliper is mounted using a bracket made by speed merchant. Just search radial front caliper bracket you will find them.

It states you can’t use a radial caliper on a narrow glide front end with spoke wheels. Which is true, it will rub. But you can grind away enough of the caliper to make it work if you choose. As far as i know I haven’t seen a radial caliper on a narrow glide spoke wheel anywhere else.

If Buell could do it, what the hell!
Often thought about doing that with a stock frame...just need to figure out a side stand mount.
