    I'm in Iraq but I've got a Spooky Tooth Tucson at home that I plan on building up when I get home. I've came up with three options. I've attached the mock-ups I drawn. What do you guys think. Which one should I do first?

    I like the first one, the old school look. But the streamliner is kinda cray-zee too.

    The first but I would make it with a bit smaller tank, I think it's too big for the bicycle/engine.
    Nice pics btw! Keep up it up over there!

    I spent some of 2008 and all of 2009 in Iraq, matter of fact I've only been home a couple of months. I was in Q West and while I was there I was walking to chow one day which was about a mile from my CHU and two young soldiers rode by me on motorized bikes. I caught up with the guys later and asked them where and how they built the bikes. Thanks to these guys I went back to my CHU and ordered my first engine to go on a bike that I bought at the PX the first month I was there. Been hooked ever since and have built 5 bikes since I've been home and I'll never stop :)

    The smaller tank looks great ,might try the saddel bags streamline the same as the tank(and I like all three as they are shown,)

    I think that they all are good looking, but I really like the 1st one.
    I also gotta say: Thankyou very much, majdan, for serving our country!

    i like the first one ,

    you would never ride the last one ( well mabey on a day with less than a 1mph breeze ) .
    the wind from a passing bus or truck would definately wipe you out .

    I was leaning towards #2 until you made the tank on #1 smaller. Now I am all over #1. Very nice. And as others have said: THANK YOU FOR YOUR SACRIFICES FOR OUR FREEDOM. If you ever make it to Columbus Ohio look me up and I'll buy you a beer or 3! usflg.

    For some odd reason, #1 really appeals to me....and thanks for doing what you do.

    I would add that those leather cases don't grow on trees...not for a reasonable price, at least.
