well im planning on making a bolt on sheet metal windshield frame, and im thinking this will keep the center /\ bars from contacting the glass, a little more room to work on back of engine, I also think it makes the front roof much stronger because the bars are almost vertical, there will bars attaching under those going to floor tubes. plus all the cool guys are doing it lol.

Yep, skip to 1:30 and prepare for a sound boner. If all vehicles sounded like that thing I'd have a chubby everytime I was on the road.

thanks. gotta figure out rough radiator size before I start front tube work. yours looks pretty small but I assume you don't have any cooling problems?

I figured it must be pretty thick. Seemed pretty small to me but 4 core would make up the difference.
