That Hard Rock looks like a beast! Great job! I've always felt Hard Rocks were practically made to fit the chinagirl

So far I am really liking this bike, the saddle Dan so far seems okay; we will find out on long rides how good it is.

The tank on here is 3/4gallons, I got it from Dax a long time ago. I was skeptical because I never heard of a 3/4 tank. But true to his word it is 3/4 of a gallon.

I will post more detail photos when I get a chance.

Cool looking build! I have not had the heart to do this to my hardrock. Looks great though, and I like the fit of the bike for my height too (6ft)

Thanks LS, tomorrow I am gonna switch the pipe over to the stock one. This fatty pipe is just way to loud for daily commuting.

I will lose a little power but if I need more that's what the pedals are for.

Cleaned up my old chrome muffler and painted it, the fatty is just too loud to be cruising around. I am gonna lose some power but thats what the pedals are for...right?

The Saddle, looks nice but not very comfortable. Hopefully I can find a nice looking gel seat that goes with the bike.

I went to buy my usual Schwinn speedo but they were out, so I got a Bell one instead. Works great but every now and then when I first fire up the motor it resets itself.

Once the motor is running it does fine, but it is a pain to re-program every time.

Until I can figure out how to mount a disc and sprocket I am using the Odyssey 1999 BMX brakes on the rear. And yes this wheel is compatible to use these brakes. Many disc wheels are not so be sure yours is before using rim brakes.

The IRC tires I am using, so far traction is great. Have not gone off-road yet and they are a little stiff and makes for a bumpy ride. Hookworms is what I want but I will have to wait for a while for them.

And the rear sprocket.............
