So I mocked up the sportster tonight to see how it would look.
Fuckin ace , that's how it will look. Handeling may be a bit shit but I can deal with that.
Tyre is a 215x60x15 it's slightly narrower than the rim so nothing is wider than said rim . This gives me a bit more space for my drive chain. An also gives the wheel a very slight camber.
I did have a bit of a moment in my haste to river the bike on blocks.
Once the wheel was removed I lowerd the frame onto 5" blocks but as it descended it picked up quite some pace. But it's OK because both of my middle fingers on both hands acted as a lovely bump stop between the stand and the cissy bar.
I was trapped squealing gently to my self getting slightly panicked . I was completely stuck.
I had a vision of myself being found the next day passed out with my hands trapped in my bike.
I had to summon all the power in Grayskull to lift it back up to free my poor digits.

In the morning we went to Ace Cafe for breakfast. ( thanks to Hugo an Sergio from Rock Solid motorcycles , in Portugal for suggesting that we go there. I didn't realise how close we were an they used to live in London for a time).
First time I've been there an it was bloody great. There was a military vehicle meet there as it was rememberance Sun.
Motörhead were great as always but the Dammed were brilliant and a massive supprise was Boss Hoss , 11 members in the band that put on a brilliant show. Well worth watching.
