    looks great. i like what you've done with the front wheel :D
  5. Wow. Nice finished product considering your ordeal. Did you paint the red plastic cover?
    I love that paint job on your engine. Thinking of doing the same thing.
    (edit) changed the url from 3 on the end to 4 and then 5. Yes. Very nice job on the paint!
    How did you prep the plastic?

    Got your message-

    -I love the paint matching the bike, engine shroud, valve cover and gearbox. Nice color. Of course, I'm jealous of anyone with paint at this point. Right now, I've got 3 colors of primer and what paint I do have- I don't like, so that will be redone.

    Looks good. Are you running the 48 tooth sprocket? I've found that to be the best one for all around- but was kicking around a 50.

    No governor needed on these, my man. I think you would be well over 40 before overr-revving it...and you may have the the ...stones, shall we say, to do that all day long, but I don't.

    One question- do you have spray equipment, or is that just a supremely awesome rattle can job?

    Either way- the paint quality looks superior.

    Nice looking bike MasterLink,
    I think that you did good on the paint job like everyone else too. Now that I see your bike I know that the beach cruiser will work for me. Which is great because I am getting attached to it. Thanks for your post on the other thread. I appreciate your help. When I get to the point where I'm building my bike I will make lots of pictures and share them with everyone.

    Like I said... love your bike... nice man.

    Kewl! Glad that you got the mount issues fixed! And you're right... what a toy :). I can't wait until I get one and can play with it myself. I know that it must be neat to talk to the people about your mb. I know that they must love it and want to know all about it. What a great deal... the wind in your face and 150 mpg yea!
