    Made the handle bars yourself! That's a neat job. The more I watch this forum and picture gallery the more I realize the talent some of you have. Many of these bikes put mine to shame. Yes, I have tried to bend some things such as a exhaust pipe for this 70cc. RUINED IT. So you can see why I'm impressed with some of this craftsmanship I see on here.

    nice bike loco and I like the way the headlight matches the curves on the tank.
    You must have some short legs like mine to start that beast! :)

    With a seat that low your knees are going to be up higher than the tank, with your feet tucked under you, I had to lower my footpegs to make it more comfortable. You have pedals, so one leg will be comfy while the other is touching your a**. lol
