The Roadie Has been an ever evolving project. I've spent this Winter giving it a good going over and ever thing looks tight and falls with in spec . As I will be riding it from southeast Michigan to Sturgis this year.
Here's a few pics of it as of today with the Freedom dual exhaust, 21" front wheel , new valve springs, carb rebuilt,
waiting on new PM air cleaner.
also going to add XM radio.

So awesome! Your ever evolving project is looking good. Thanks for sharing recent pics.

The fact that you are still working on, and customizing this ride, gives me warm, fuzzy feelings. Like your bike was destined for Star Bike Forums 2018 Bike of the Year.
