Default Re: The Violator is born!

Well, its cool. To me, this bike suggests a modern take on a boardie. You have to remember, elements of board track racing are everywhere. I was watching a rerun of american chopper the other day, and they built a drag bike. I watched them test ride it, and they ride it in the prone position, just like a btr. Now, a drag bike looks nothing like a btr, but the influence is clearly there. I know that my bike isn't a traditional boardie, but looking at it, its clearly heavily influenced by boardies and classic motorcycles. So imho, this is the appropriate category for this build. Guys who wanna take any old beach cruiser right off the shelf and just slap a motor on it are not in the same category as my bike. Sorry, they just aren't.
