Sept. 2020 Bike of the Month
« on: September 09, 2020, 01:11:43 PM »
Sorry for the delay, I had my fourth surgery on my left foot at the end of August and it kind set me back. If you were at SGT 2007 you will know the back story :blink:

Well, this months winner is a bit of a throwback, period correct Vetter fairing and KG saddle bags, trunk, and sissy bar. Please, please tell me there is an 8 track player somewhere on the bike. :blink:

Everybody rides different bikes, but we all ride for the same reason.

A tip of the hat to 6Stroke for posting what is possibly the most comfortable and practical V45 Magna I've ever seen. The spirit of Kerry lives on!

What ever happened to him anyway?

Man, that's a spit'n image of the Magna Wing, only nicer!

Great Job preserving a unique example 6Stroke.

Sorry to hear Michael that you're still having problems with your ankle. Fortunately, you were one of the last at an SGT to have that kind of luck.

Jasper/Stretch It was supposed to be a 2 week recovery with a removeable foot cast. When the Dr.  walked in for my what I thought was my last post surgery checkup and saw my riding boot on my right foot, it became a 4 week recovery, so I guess it was self inflicted.

The helmet must not have given it away.

Thank You!!

I welded up a bracket for the Vetter fairing that worked pretty well but then found a NOS (New Old Stock) KG mount for it. I need to scan the installation directions, add it to the other KG files I found or scanned and make a folder on Google Drive to go with the Vetter and brochure folders (I have a couple more to add to the Vetter folder too).
