Those new batteries are light and small.  Some of the chopper guys around here use two sets of the smaller batteries wired together but hidden away at two different locations on their bikes.

But that starter motor in the back has to add a pound or two.

Now, this is just my thinking and about 2 cents worth. I'm a bit stumped. This fragile starter is the first non essential item on the bike I can think of. Even given to me I'd think twice about fitting it. Every layer of complexity can (and will) turn around and bite a**. In addition to that -its a contraption that is hard to repair or borrow out there on the big white, in contrast to a busted roller starter. Heck, I'd even leave a kick starter pedal at the starting line. On the other hand the starter could be nifty for a swift getaway in a test session on the danish blacktop. Ooh yess, I bet I hit the nail there! afro

You build a bike that cool and while Bonneville is the big picture, there's no avoiding taking it around town once or twice. The starter makes the bike as a whole that much more practical. IF it were mine, i'd show it off.

IT'S ALIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIVE !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It starts like a pussycat

NO unpleasant machanical noise from the engine whatsoever

Took a bit of fixing intake leaks , ignition timing blah blah
but it starts ...it runs ....it sounds positively glorious !
( Can't hear that on the crappy video )
It goes like stink !

On the video ( one of the first starts ) it wasn't set up properly yet, so it backfires...farts....spits....the exhaust was
loose so it spit out flames, and there's still a LOT of dailing in to do...carb etc.
but now here tonight it goes kind'a'real well !

Been looking at this beast for a year and a half and .....F I N A L Y !!!!

WoooHooooo Lars!!!!!   When it first fires up all the late nights, broken parts, missing parts, nicks and cuts all vanish into the darkness.  Congrats.  Really looking forward to seeing it zoom along the salt.
