Default Re: The "Red Hornet" a slightly different twist!

Thanks, guys. The bike is sort of a hybrid between a vintage look with some updates like the disc brakes. I didn't really design it, I just started bolting spare parts together and it took on a life of its own. The hardest part when you are customizing is getting measurements right, a lot of trial and error, mostly error on some things. The seat is great, big, cushy, no fanny fatigue on this puppy. It's fun rolling down the highway, the springer front and the springer seat swaying with the bumps and potholes. No bone jarring thumps like you get on a hardtail. Anyway, you guys are special in my book if you know who Pee Wee Herman is. I watched his show as a kid and always admired his Roadmaster bike (that was long before that little incident in the cat house)!!!!! Thanks for the feedback.
