And the story/inspiration/additional comments: I love history and have focused on WW2 european theatre. Always wanted a bike from that era and had built a WLA out of a Harley Crossbones, hence the need for it's counterpart. After looking at the Urals and Chang Jiang repros of the WW2 BMW's, I knew I could do better. Found a donor bike (wrecked with good engine and frame) and got started. I based it on the import version of a 1937 Vincent Rapide, the only bike of that era with cantilever rear suspension. The forks are a DNA springer adapted to work with the V-Star frame. Sure would have liked a girder but that's a whole bag of worms to deal with. Everything works as it should, plenty of power with the 650.

Great looking bike rij1. Glad you put in for BOTM. Love the blacked out pipes, fits the bike very well.

Are the dates just screwed up on this thread? It looks like the first post is from 7-1-15, then it skips a few months, then catches up...
Anyways, @rij1 man, that Roadliner has a cool and mean look, almost steampunk-ish. Diggin' that a lot.
