For those that might have missed it, gingerbeard has a thread here about his bike build that I think compliments this thread.

Great Idea to have this thread!!! And thanks for the plugs on the SC3 Adventure.

I hope to see some cool stuff on here.

Here's the latest version on mine with the new 5 gallon plastic tank...

Thanks for posting; your SC3 Adventure is epic. It really sets the standard for what a off road, DS Sportster can become. It was primarily, you and John Wesley that inspired me to take my modest plunge. Glad you're here!

Rod

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