Looks great....how does it handle? New forks and change in rake I imagine it’s not as nimble? Looks like a tank coming at you.

No change in forks or rake, same ole forks. Nothing different other than a wider wrap fender, wider wheel and an Avon 180 tire. Went to an 18” wheel, from the stock 19”... shorter wheel, taller tire. Bike feels the same, though feels like it rides even smoother. Not much ride time yet to get a feel, picked it up late afternoon yesterday, and today it’s raining here in SC. Been told by some at Coastal Indian it’ll handle and turn in way better than the stock 19”, probably has a lot to do with a much better tire.

Nice! I saw a 23” fat wheel a couple of weeks ago and had a whole new fork set up and rake kit. Was told it lost some handling. I’d be curious to here more from your experience. Might go that 18” route. Here was bike a saw
