Really nice job! External forks springs look neat.

Imho would look better with a fender, but to each his own.

Very true but so worth it

Re: Ciao build complete

Bad Ass... color is awesome... Do they really make the license plates that large..?

Re: Ciao build complete

Steve Davies /

Believe it or not that plate is illegal here in uk it should be an inch longer on each dimension but I agree does spoil the look

Bike looks great! The spoked rims do look awesome. Super clean!

I have the same forks and the stock fender will in no way fit on those. It is off by a lot. New brackets would have to be made. I tried a couple

Different ones and could not figure out would would fork on those forks.

How do you mount a headlight on those ebr springer forks? Aren't those external springs just for show? Could you potentially remove them and use traditional headlight fork mounts?

I also absolutely love how you chopped the fender and rear rack, that is a style I've never seen before. Everyone chops the fender but the way you did that rear end looks GORGEOUS!

Also, how in the heck did you mount that seat? It's completely stiff right? I'm drooling

Re: Ciao build complete

Steve Davies /

Yes the springs are just for show so I cut them down to fit around the light mounts

Re: Ciao build complete

Steve Davies /

There is still the original spring beneath the seat I just cut around 2 inch off the original seat post part of the frame and using the piece I cut off I used as template to drill new holes, glad u like

Re: Ciao build complete

That's lovely. Great job.

Re: Ciao build complete

As a UK former Ciao owner (in 1986 for £25), this build looks great.

Further to Steve's answer, our registration plates on bikes is stupidly big, but so long as the correct sized font is used, the border around can be cut down to the legal minimum (6mm I think). (edited)
