    Looks good! Loving that rear wheel dealy..

    Haters be hatin... But honestly. If you'll look at the bikes on this site there's probably 10:1 prefab hardtail or brat kits versus a DIY. Consider that about half of them were welded by a paid welder and where does that leave us. Who's crying wolf?? Just cuz JD got the money and taste to pull it off with style doesn't make him any less of a builder... I love to see a garage built ground up but this bike is also cool. Just remember that it takes all kinds and I wouldn't want that to change....

    Sexy bike. I may be the only one, but it just stood out at me when I saw it. With the new ribbed valve covers, I think it would look infinitely better if you matched the radius on the edge with the radius of the motor. It just sticks out as different and caught my eye

    Yes a lot of the parts that went on the bike were purchased or one off components custom made.

    I can't give enough thanks to all the talented people,aftermarket suppliers who contributed to making my vision a reality to me.
