    It was supposedly very stable out of the box. Designed as a triangle and engineered etc. I wasn't fond of the single post the seat sat on and figured the shorter it was the stronger it would be. It didn't flex even up high so guess we're good there.
    I think when I get the bars lowered we'll be ok. Seems fall has arrived here suddenly. Rain and really cooled down so rides might be a bit fewer for awhile.
    Glad to hear you've already got foot support.
    I've set up my last few bikes so that they've essentially been EZ Boy chairs on wheels. I like leaning back against a backrest when I ride. And getting the bars closer keeps the dreaded neck ache from occurring. But what works for me is not necessarily what works for you. If you are comfortable with your set up that's the only thing that matters. Keep the shiny side up Colonel! When the weather allows you to ride again that is. The rain is very welcome right now, but like most Nor'westerners I'll be ready to complain about it after about three days.

    Looking at the photo again, actually the main reason I had the wife take it, I see where your coming from. Would be nice to have the bars closer. I could mount the seat closer but kind of limited as I have to get my leg thru there to mount the beast.
    I may try to get another handle bar post to be safe and cut it or have it bent. The stem of the bars is very long, almost the full length of the fold down pipe it rides inside.
    I'll probably have to remove the lower end to get the bars out, so I don't have to disconnect all the stuff hanging on the bars. Work in progress.

    'Work in progress'
    Yep, and one of the reasons us guys who enjoy working with our hands or just figuring things out like the challenge of doing so. I'm sure you'll figure it out, and enjoy the great fun of riding it when you have the chance to ride it after having gotten it set up just as you like it!

    You guys remember the movie, "The Crawling Hand" from back in the early 60's? "Push the red button, push the red button".

    I can't believe I didn't recognize the movie. I love that movie. A senior moment I guess. McQueen played some of the Germans riding the motorcycles to.

    There some real men in the movies back then. Too many sensitive girlie men in movies today.
    The only thing better than having all the guns and ammo you'd ever need would be being able to shoot it all off the back porch.
