I'm not sure we could explained this conversion to a customer but I had a pretty clear vision of what we were looking for and since the bike was mine, we didn't have to. It turned out to be the most fun and usable bikes I have. Well, all the fun games have come to an end, for now anyway. Looks like all the screwing around found the weak link in a rubber-mount Sportster, the rear motor mount. Oh well, it was fun while it lasted.
