Saw this on ADV and was curious if anyone had more info on it
While not my style, I like that its SO different from stock. Someone really made a custom bike, not just bolting bits on here and there.

I know that front wheel is too big and the front suspension doesn't look like an ideal setup.

I'll agree that the front and rear matching aint my style or, well, very functional.

As for girder front end - I guess that depends on your idea of 'ideal'

Although I am usually a function-follows-form kinda person, I realize not every single bike is made for hyper performance. I really like it.

Thats a ton of work for a one-off ride. Congrats to whoever made it.

The amount of different fabrication disciplines you have got to know to make a bike like that is impressive!

I do not think that it is fair to call that a custom XB rather than Buell powered, as it appears to be just a XB9 motor, header, and kickstand. Everything else is from another bike or custom.

I do dig the look of it overall.

"Different in Every Sense"

I'd like to run N. GA with that guy/gal, see if they could keep pace.

I don't like anything about it, but hey it's a free country.

I kinda like it.
Springer, not girder.

More interested in the magneto-fired panhead behind it.
