TBTS is easy to ride like any other bike, Its almost trouble free (some issues, but very minor). But the RE is rhythm and beat is missing totally. To me it sounds like the old diesel one.

I will not change much for an year, what I really need is better sound. I am going to change that silencer (RE doesn't have one for the TBTS in stock and the convention silencer can not be used), will be fixing the short one.

TBTS is for those who like to ride an RE bike, But not for those who have passion for it. May be first time buyers would like it much.

good to hear that your bike returns you 40 KMPH but its hard to beleive as yours is a 500 or 535 buts its good if it is just make sure its not running too lean you may face a engine seize.

-----------------------

this is my 1977 bullet 350

modified to look like a vintage with old style fenders

nothing much apart from that.

Hand painted strips on the tank and fenders.

would be going for the disks soon also Furry aloys wheels with some tubeless tyres
