A lot of thought, along with some blood, sweat, and tears went into that project! Very nice! Plus John Q. Public knows exactly what it is!

Great looking bike, it all comes together well and looks balanced.

The LED turn signals look great, makes me wonder..............

Cheers,

Brett

Thanks eveyone for the nice comments. I'm glad to get some documentation of the bike while it still looks good.

Next stop is the dragstrip. Time to test the motor work. Hopefully I'll have some good time slips to show you.

Mmm, nice tasty looking bike, I don't like lots of chrome either, bikes are to be ridden, not tarted up and then trailed to a show or a rally as far as I'm concerned.
