    Clean, I like the chrome door edging on the tank. Nice touch.

    I was slack in noting that my very good friend LOUIE did most of the hard work on this bike while i was the finance/idea man....we basically built the bike over the phone in the months leading up to actually building it in the course of 2 days while wife and I were vacationing at his house for 2 weeks....good times:cool2:
