I dig the bike, very nice job on it. As far as the name goes, just remember that you can never make everyone happy.

I did not think of WWII,and for being sensitive,I suppose if you had a brother,sister or wife killed by a suicide bomber in THESE modern times you might be a little sensitive too.If your bike was named by previous owner then to really make it your own you should rename her.But maybe wait until your are completely finished to do that.What color are you going to paint?

The bike looks great!

I misread the bike as "Suicide Bobber." That works on many levels.
Must we be so sensitive about everything? How about "Suicide Hello Kitty?"

If i wasnt sensitive and respectful about the misunderstanding issue around the bike name put by some of you, i would have just replied with some "i dont care" frase. But i'm... i respect your views, but i like the name although i wasnt the one that named like that and after i explained whats the purpuse and meaning behind the name i expect that ppl leave the terrorist association behind since as nothing to do with it.

And Maxanimal, please research better your history about allied suicide bomber missions... you also got some movies about it, to make it easy!

Shes painted army green, as you can see on my avatar and on the post KarlC mentioned.

ludlow555
You right, "Suicide Bobber" could easy be a new very suited name for her...

xllent01
You right, hope i can post here the rest of the pics soon, so ppl can enjoy it and comment on her too.


Thanks to all that are focusing on the bike...
