    It looks cool, and seems to require fewer maintenance.

    I dig the springer but not the rake that usually goes with them on all the "built" bikes

    My bike or should I say most bikes have springs inside of them and fork oil. Wouldn't have it any other way! Maintenance, pfftt. My bike has almost 22k miles on it and I did the maintenance on them for the first time. Took me 2 hours to do it! I'm sure the next time I could do it in half the time.

    Then your bike is overdue for a fork oil change! They really do need that.

    That's what I was saying, I just did it! It was pretty easy to do, I'd say!

    It needs other things first.... Like 3rd gear and more power, lol. I'm considering a motor swap... But then I have to convert a motor to shaft drive
