    Nice job Bama, clean look and nice mount, spiffy banana seat, nice ;-}
    Did you make the triple CREE bullet headlight or buy it?

    Your perfectionism is showing! That is a beautiful, clean, unique and interesting build. Great attention to detail. Builds of this caliber don't come along very often. Bravo.
