Best,
Yes it is. I've already had it off many a time to sort out some wiring issue. Comes in handy.

Very well done mate. Enjoy.
For the life of me, I couldn't settle on a paint scheme. When that time came I just colored as I went. Very simple and to touch up when needed. Thanks for the compliments.

Default I second the motion-

on the throttle quadrant!!!!!! Perhaps when I can start my RV, I'll have a quad like that!

Thanks for all the great comments! It's still hard to believe such a machine can be built by anyone with a desire. To all in the building stages, "keep at it!".

Not to keep buggin you Chris or anything but you have quite a machine there, Whats your take on manufacturing a few of the parts you fabbed up for yours? I know theres already a few of us who would fork over some cash for the throttle quadrant mount and forward tunnel, let us know if there is anything we can do to help you out if this is a possiblity. I love it, Also I bet if you could make a mold for the canopy fairings they would be a huge money maker!
