Just curious, but if you did some good AL parts upgrades and made it SS would it produce a cool "softail" mid-weight weenie build? Pace rigid carbon forks on the front would be a delight.

Just seen this thread and I also have and love (I must do otherwise I'd have skipped it years ago!) an Activator 2, actually an Activator 2 GS Special Edition. Heavy, with rock solid suspension but I think looks awesome and I've owned it from new. Just put new tyres on it and otherwise totally original. Been a fun thread to read :lol:

[quote="Jussa"]Ooooooooooooh Piccies please :)[/quote]

Here it is, needs some love, a respray of the bar ends and handlebar stem, replace the seat stem, looking for a replacement saddle, buts rides ok. Gripshift twisters, saddle and tyres all grey as original but need a clean. I like it but with the 1.95 tyres it does sound like my Land Rover when on the road :wink:
