    I like that adjustable baffle! Not really fond of the look, though. To me it looks unfinished from the back of the seat to the (lack of) tail light. But that's just my opinion. I do like the gauge clean-up, though. And nice effort on the front fender. I'll give it a

    The site claims a LED taillight somewhere. To get an state inspection sticker here, it will need blinkers most likely as well. I like the old style high rear fender...needs some mud in there

    I wish we had those adjustable baffles back in the "old" days... something called Snuff-or-nots were the manual version on some scrambler pipes


    a few Airhead Scramblers...check out the large license plate on the first one

    You can do better in color selection. The brown seat seems out of place. Is it a kit or do you have to piece it together?

    they say a "kit" but they just mention part numbers. Not crazy about the brown saddle either.

    Close but not quite what I'm planning

    My "Scrambled Bob" project is based on an R 850R that was headed for the great parts bin on E-bay until I got it running, fixed the bent front end and became attached.

    By the way it is a nice bike but a little to store bought for me. What I mean by that is it looks like most of the modifications are either mail order or bike speed shop stuff which by the way is good but not the direction I am going with my little money pit.

    Spokes are a very nice touch and I like the chopped rear sub frame. Why keep the cheesy and tacky handle bars? I could go on but instead I'll get busy on my latest new mistress and hopefully learn how to take and post pictures.

    Similar to the black scrambler, add 3-4 inches onto the kit fender. Change the saddle to something less "front-heavy" looking (and change the colour) and you'll have something that I wouldn't mind being around.
