Congrats on the project finish! Too bad it's so hideous due to the unpainted bracket... kidding of course, way to go! Totally jealous, my EXC could use some refreshing.

I guess I can post up a couple "completed" photographs now. It's got a few hours on it and everything seems to be working properly. I think I actually am done with it now, too. I just need to go ride!

It's a tugger strap. It falls down because it's not cinched tight around the forks. It can't go any lower than that and it comes right back up when you grab the strap to tug on it.

Looks great! Funny thing about a project like that, you seem to love the vehicle more than any other. You did a good job getting it done in a timely manner too. Hope the recent ride gives you the pleasure that you deserve.
