Attaboy Fish! My hat's off to you. I am in awe of someone who can take a pile of parts from six different machines, some new some old, throw in a few hunks of rusty iron from behind the shed and come up with a fully functional world class butt-kicker!

No Horn 'Ted , but it does have a horn button , the 4x2 was mounted in the fender , I moved the shifter and had a hole , stuck a push button starter switch in the hole , had thought about a horn to mess with people ---I have a secret weapon that I was thinking of hooking up to that "horn " button , I have a small water tank for a window washer , it hides perfect behind the oil cooler , and can have the nozzle and hose hidden in the front grill , people in front of me can get water soaked , LOL

I took the lift kit out the bike and swopped the rear shocks to some that are 3 inches shorter to get it level and still keep the 6 1/2 inch swing arm , it dropped it down a little over 5 inches ---I sent the lift kit back and was credited , the guy who built the kit is a 300 lift guy and it was his first attempt at the 450 , and it wasn't right , had trouble with the right side cv-shaft popping out the diff , the 450 diff is not in the middle of the frame , making the kit non-symetrical ---I have the bike ready to ride today , been talking with builders about another kit , but , not sure if I want to put a it on the 450 , might just have one built for my 300 and leave this 450 like it is in this pic
