here are a few pics of the bike, I removed all of the body work, which consists almost entirely of a front fender, rear fender, and headlight bracket. I also removed the seat, and placed a crudely cut plywood seat pan in it's place. I'll cut a nicer one and cover/pad it later. I also cut a piece of angle steel and bolted it to the triple tree to move the handlebars forward and down. I have decided to go with a sportier riding position,and i ordered a set of "drag bars" that will make excellent low bars. I've found a couple of cardboard boxes to approximate the size and location of the "vittles" as this is a requirement for the challenge. Last year I used plastic storage totes, and had my camping gear stored in them for the ride down and back.
