    I think you'd get arrested for riding the back seat

    She looks like a fun ride. You should consider renting her out.

    I think this objectifies and degrades women. So naturally I love it! I would have made her facing the other direction though.

    Cool! And a darn nice looking trophy. I'm betting the judges were all male, right? ;)

    I think your fork needs way more rake if you're going to run that type of springer. The handling has got to be squirly like that.

    Original rake, haven't noticed any handeling problems!

    This bike is not a speedster, holds 30 mph. Perhaps at higher speeds there might be a problem.

    Well you have the fender brace mounted where the axle would have been and now its set way back possibly even behind the steering axis. Old track bikes are set up like this but generally it makes for terrible handling. Even subtle changes in the placement of the front axle make dramatic differences and you pretty much always want some rake. This diagram shows what I'm talking about. https://calfeedesign.com/tech-papers/geometry-of-bike-handling/

    I am well aware of rake. However the truth is in the excelent ride & handling. Went for another 15 mi+ ride today and all is well

    She is missing, and she took my credit card with her!

    No she is stored in my bike shed. It is very easy swapping from the (Patriots) to the (Ride sally Ride) setup. Basically, although I can ride the bike with either body on it, I only ride it with the bare bones frame.
