    Very, very nice indeed. Am I correct in seeing a twin tube exhaust using the frame tubes? Awesomely clean design!

    *Second look, I see that I am not r thats the rear hanger rod, then? Still, beautiful work.

    This is screaming for a sickbikeparts shifter kit. I just ordered the kit but still dont have motor or bike to put it on(guess my Q built whizzer will have to sufice for now) but I want ot put it on one of this choppers because of the disc brakes and internal gear hubs. But you have to weld in a bar like that to really make it work right.
  5. Awesome build. Looks great!

    What kinda frame is that? My friend sitting next to me just fell in love with it and wants to build a bike around it.

    Micargi Classic 26

    it has taken a long time and many modifications to get it to that stage. I also have a beautiful custom exhaust but it's away getting a baffle made for it. As far as the Sick Bike Parts shifter kit goes , I think it is fast enough as is.:shock:
    I'm looking for paint suggestions ,I'm thinking pantone neon green 802c ?

    Very nice. I just built a similar chopper using fabbed brackets but the vibration is so bad I think I will have to weld a tube like you did and repaint especially since it will have a shifter kit.

    I just wanna say I like your signature message at the bottom. I think a few of these guys might have been hall monitors when they were kids or something!

    The pipe was made by a friend who fabricates stainless steel rails for boats. He is quite talented .It is very noisey ,it pretty much a straight through pipe. I will go and take some better pics and start a new thread :praying Mantis Chopper

    Micargi Mustang GTS

    OK. I missed that. I had a couple of Micargi Mustangs, but not a classic!
