Hi Alfie
Really pretty and well done in all the way.
But only one seat or the rear is an option, since i see the rear foot pegs on?
The rear disk for me, is truly a must have and not those "not safe drum brakes My new ride 437349 "
Have plenty miles on it with always a big smile ever My new ride 3498837457

Hi Jose rear seat is standard in Britain as with ABS,however in America both are added extras and have to be paid for.Ardie up to now the bike is very nimble and certainly goes were you point it. The kerb weight is only 228kg with 14 ltrs fuel.

Hi Alfie once again.
Yours "HAVE THE LOOK" and all that a bike needs to simple "turn the heads around". My new ride 3498837457
Not too weight, good brakes, color, enough cc's for a big journey (ride position and pleasant handlebars) or simply in "urban mode"...
I like in all bikes the white color as the black (mate or gloss) and red ones.

And yours with the rear seat, the good job well done black mate with white color, the shock absorber in sight and not hided
...is outstanding!!!
The main exhaust seemed like a machine gun: ilis

The more I look at it, the more I like it.  Have to say, if I was after a new bike today, it'd be between this & the Indian Scout - but this is about half the price.  Clean, uncluttered lines - nice ride

To be honest Sim,in my opinion better, Pros: smoother engine,better brakes, very nimble, lighter, inline twin engine,ABS,Tacho fitted as standard.    Neg: chain drive,seat as hard as nails (needs upgrading)still looking for the extra gear even though it has six. Unable to give a two up comment as have not had a pillion yet.

The build quality seems good,have take exhaust header studs out an copper sealed them back in,also vaselined all the electrical connections.Fitted the Tutoro Auto chain oiler,and put a pair of bobbins on the rear frame,much easier to use with the paddock stand,do miss the bike lift under the bike though,as the exhaust cat and box are in the way.Had the 500 mile service last week £84 99 for an oil change.
Oil filter £10:00   Oil silkolene 10/40 £15:37  disposal £4:99  Labour £40:47

Hey Alfie,

Looks a nice enough bike to me My new ride 184121345  ...... but then again, I don't worry too much about the looks, as long as its a bike I can enjoy riding, then I'm happy ..... & there are not many bikes that I could not find some enjoyment from. Your Kwak cruiser is a modern interpretation of the cruiser theme, and as a practical road machine I think it has plenty to offer .... i.e. lots of fun at a modest operating budget.

My new ride 428386  To Sim's comment .... glad you are out enjoying it ... I'm very envious of your 'bike time' as I'm still stuck with a heavy workload, and my bikes have had to take a back seat for awhile, I'm still getting an odd chance to nip out on the bike - but nowhere near enough .... & absolutely no tinker time, but a back-log of jobs I'd like to do. 

You keep at it & enjoying it ..... Top man !

Cheers for the comments very appreciated. Dave R  the Tuturo Auto is about the same price as Scotoiler but in fairness you do not have to break into vaccum or electrical fittings saving your warranty, they are a very good system.
