    this is my baby. shes runnin strong with a grubee 48 cc engine. ive had crotch rockets and motorcycles but get way more thumbs up on this creation. it has ape hangers and i had to trim the rear fender to fit the chain. what do you guys think?? i have another project i am building now should be ready in about a week. i absolutely love these things and nothing is more rewarding than the craftsmanship of youre own two hands.

    Need detail shots, in focus, out of doors.

    It must not leak, because you have it on the carpet. +1
    Do you like it? You must, because you made a poll about your own bike +1
    I like most all bikes that are done in at least a workman like manner, style is the owner's thang. +1
    Lousy picture -1.

    Hey 3 of 4 nutjobs like your bike. Go ride in confidence!

    Fine looking bike.

    I'm going to criticize your poll just a bit, though.
    I wasn't willing to say the bike was awesome. That needs to be reserved for the ones that are a bit more unusual.

    but the next choice was "good, but not great", or something like that. And that wasn't quite a good enough choice either. The bike is a bit better than that.

    So I'd suggest, "That's cool!"

    add that's cool in the poll

    I agree -- a that's cool in your poll -- would have at least gotten you

    two votes for that's a cool MB you got the THING going on there !!!

    Looks good enough to warrant valet parking at Ceasars Palace!
    Photography, like mechanical skills, take practice.
    If the bike meets your needs and looks tidy, it's an awesome build.
