    And why may that be Sir Tom ? :)
    I certainly won't be able to hear the difference and am hoping for a performance increase..BUT....if there IS no increase....I will install a normal muffler......Please don't be angry Tom....I'm still feeling my way ......but what do you think of the bike itself ?


    Thanks,
    Chris.shft.

    Chris,
    It has good lines and should make a great looking MB. I love that bobbed rear fender, really! Keep us posted with photos and if its too loud, I'll wear hearing protection. :)

    Nice build. It looks like a Dyno for about half the price.

    I thought so too and was pleased at how it turned out....it was the first build that I had absolutely no help with what-so-ever.....the whole thing cost me not even $275.00 and I got $700.00 for it.


    Thanks,
