    Another new family member today

    I dragged this wore out old 2003 with 330 miles on it home today to be the recipient of all my modifications instead of the 2016. Might be good to have a project bike and a rider for a while during the heavy modification phase. I have gotten my toys tore apart before and missed part of a season.





    2016, stock'ish and a 2003 Starting on a 225 or bigger 6 speed build as a spare for now and install later when done and ready on this bike.

    Just the two, 16 and a 03, one to always have a rider and another for my mods and to have a loaner or wife ride if both are going on that day. They will both go camping regularly too.

    Hey Doug,

    Wow, 330 miles on a 2003!

    Judging by the pics it was rode hard and is still wet. That bike is clearly on its last legs. I would be doing you a disservice if I didn't offer to take it off your hands to protect you from that stock front tire and all other manner of problems associated such an old, high mileage TW.

    Don't waste another minute worrying about what a bad deal you made. Just sign the title, tape it to the tank, and ship that old tired eyesore out here to me and I will save you the trouble of trying to dispose of it - at no charge whatsoever to you!

    Just trying to to help out a new forum member,

    Brian

    Pictures won't open. Just an X surrounded by a box. Can you resend?

    Posted according to the site recommendations I hope. The others were hosted on a third party site and work everywhere I know but here, bummer.... but if this works no big deal.
