Default just had to tell someone :)

YAYYYYY!!!!

my lowrider passed it MOT, minor problem with back brake as its new disc, new pads etc etc, efficiency was a little bit low, but other than that its all fine

now I just have to find the money to get the carbs set up properly for low down running and I will be a very happy bunny

MOT was at 12, I didnt put the petrol in and try to fire it until 11:40, its very first ride ever was to the MOT, surprisingly comfortable, need to mod the side stand as it deck out a little early, but these are just minor teething problems

was very strange to stand back and look at it from a distance, as never seen it from more than about 3' away in my garage

cheers guys, now can use it for my wedding on saturday, then get back to work on it, couple of niggly things, rear brake toque arm tried to eat itself on the way to MOT, underestimated how much force there would be on it, but easy to sort.

got so many looks riding it to the MOT, was great to be back on a fully custom bike

cheers guys, achieved just what I was after looks wise, bikes not a lot longer than a standard bike, but rear short and dumpy in the rear, and plenty low and wide

Im well surprised at how well it handles with about 50 degree of rake!!
