That's a pretty sweet bike.

Is that the exhaust pipe coming out on the opposite side of normal? Got a pic of the other side of the bike?

was the bending done with the wood block method or something similar ? or with a tube bending machine ? Is the tubing steel and where can you buy that tubing ? I think your bike and its craftsmenship is top of the line.

Very nice bike! I like all the touches. Engine turning on the clutch cover. Custom tank. Even the battery box has a bit of a steampunk feel to it.

Well done!
