    Great work. I’ll bet that you’ll never stop tinkering with her and I know that you’ll get her wet with some colour. I always get goose pimples seeing these beasts shake.

    Um does anyone notice at the end of the vid when he burps the motor the rear wheel rattles? other than that, looks pretty good !

    Looks good! I bet it would even look better running down the road.

    Love it. Very raw. Even though I don’t totally love the bars, the reverse levers make up for them. Do you happen to live in eastern PA? That’s where I am and just south of the coal region.
