    I call it that because it will haul me and a bunch of other stuff thanks to the fold out baskets. Pretty simple build. I have had this on the road since June of 2005. And it still runs great!

    Nice ride. It looks like a work horse (oops) mule to me. Great idea with the baskets.
  3. I bet that basket comes in handy. I need me one of them.
    I love your exhaust.
    Your bike is cool.
    How many miles you think you got on her?

    I probably have over 6,000 on it. Two motorbike chains, and two bicycle chains (they didn't last long:)
    Baskets are on EBay as is the schwinn type forks and exhaust. I undid the exhaust and welded a pipe with 1/4 holes drilled in it and the end welded shut. Quieter, and I think it expanded the power band.

    Seems it has proven itself to be a worthwhile friend indeed!!

    Yes, it has. Always faithful. After running it on a mix of 25 to 1 and not pushing it hard and varying my speed, I have the mix at 32 to 1 and I try not to run it flat out for extended periods.
