Hard to explain Gaz but just don't expect to be riding a MTB or BMX and you will be fine.At a normal speed they handle as good as any other bike due to the extra weight and longer wheelbase.Just get use to sitting down and pedaling,they are cruisers after all.They are best at fast down hill tarmac roads thanks to the low chassis and long rake they hammer.Bad points there painted not powder coated so if they get scratched I f*ckin go off at who did it,and you can't wheel stand em.Your feet push the front end down when you pedal you see!You could always put Pegs on the rear axle and punch it down hill but this one is about 2700mm long so it would be a BIG wheelie !!!:aaaahh:

Just don't expect to master em first ride but after 2 or 3 goe's a MTB feels odd.Also they much more comfortable than a MTB cos your not hunched over all the time your rideing it.

So when are we gunna make a KLR Sled Gaz???:D

hmmmm electric orange sled, i can see it now!

Got 2 more to do than I'm making 2 for me, a new big wheel sled with a 17"rim with a 260-300 motor bike tyre this time.Be much easier for noobs to ride than the 265 TA was.Just couldn't ride it in the wet cos we all know what TA's are like on slippery roads!...LOL Then a new Bobber for my every day bike so to speak.

These bikes look sick!! Can't believe how long the chains are lol. I guess there is little to no peddling when turning being that low.

Well the day finally came :D After the BBQ meet today I followed Ricky over to Redcliffe to pick up my sled! I got it home and took me about half an hour to assemble. A big thanks to ROB / Slydog for his absolutely awesome craftsmanship.. this thing is a work of art. BUT even better than that, it is fantastic to ride after you get used to it! Big thanks to Ricky for picking it up for me and getting it to me safely, and giving a few tips on assembly :D

Here's a few pics I took just before it got dark. It's actually still a little dusty and I need to clean it up :D

Hey Seano your camera and skills is off the chain!Is it a good fit for you,Hope so anyway.

Glad you like it mate and remember to crank the front brake up when your comfortable with it as it will skid easy as bro!Looks good next to the Lane also,I can't wait to see some of your "good shots".

Slydog

P.S BTW It has Meguires fine cut on it and it will need to be washed and polished in whatever you use to your tastes.
