Thank you ScramblerNoob I really appreciate it, it is always a good feeling when a projet takes shape and the final result comes as close as possible to the original idea and I this case it is exactly what I had in mind. Once again it was "a labor of love", it took a lot longer that I wanted to due to certain elements that were out of my control and waiting for a little cash to come in but in the end it was well worth the wait.

I just have a couple of finishing touches and she'll be done ... or will she ...

Thank you Doctor_Bunz I appreciate it, as I mentioned in previous posts it took longer than I would have liked but it was all worth it in the end.

The custom seat did not add much height at all, I kept it as narrow as possible in the front so my legs are straighter than with the stock seat and she feels a lot more nimble now. I also got rid of the stock exhaust which weighs "a ton" and a lot of other unnecessary parts off the bike, she actually feels A LOT LIGHTER and a lot more fun to ride. Had a blast this past weekend riding her and can't wait again for this weekend !

Finally got to install a set of 4" handlebar risers on the Ol' Dez Sled and loving it ! It always felt like I was leaning a little too much forward and what a difference this makes, the ride is so much more confortable now, feels like a new bike ! ! !

Next step, a set of Hagon shocks and progressive springs out front and she'll be done !
