    See you there. This should be a good ride. Even Kathy Sabin says so :)

    I'm loving those bars and fork. It just seems to 'sit' right. Can't wait to see it.

    Hey guys, this thing looks as cool in real life as it does here. It has a hot rod stance and runs good too.
    Thanks for sharing, Van. Looking forward to another ride soon.

    it sits motorless for the moment...i got a expansion chamber that makes my occ bike that much closer...might have to steal the forks back from it and get some linkage forks for it
