    Here's one I've been working on for a couple of months...

    This is a Ruff Cycles Smyinz frame & fork with 24" Felt wheels.

    It has a custom tank (built to my specs) from Ghetto bike.

    I'm just now test fitting a motorcycle pan seat.

    This is still in the mock-up phase!

    I'll post more pics as it comes together.

    Ive seen the pictures on instagram awesome bike. Did you purchase the bike from their website? Also do you plan on putting more mods on the engine or is it just going to be with the stock muffler?

    Yes, I bought it from Ruff Cycles a few years a go (& it's been sitting in my shop waiting for some motivation to find it).

    It's still in the mock up stage right now... It's going to get painted & a lot of upgrades over the next few weeks.

    The plan for this one is full paint & chrome...
    I'm not sure about the exhaust yet, it's running extremely fast with just a straight pipe & I might just make a long street sweeper pipe for it (& no expansion chamber).

    most of my builds feature just a pipe.
    it sounds like riding a pack of firecrackers!

    With that long wheelbase, you can ride without feeling the earthquakes.

    I finally got the chance to deliver the chopper to it's new owner yesterday.

    He's from the Bay Area & he (& his friend) agreed to meet me 1/2 way & drove down to Santa Barbara to pick it up.
    After that I spent a few hours with my family at the SB mission..
