    This is a very clean chop. Beautiful paint. The only thing I wish was different, and this is typical of XS chops, is the neck is left with that horrible gusseting untouched. Still, it's awesome.

    Glad to see some of you guys got something done this winter. I just did a lot talking about motorcycles :doh:

    The bike looks good, did you turn the fork lowers on a lathe or just clean them up by hand?

    nice clean simple build. My ass cringed at the thought of riding that seat tho. Like the stripes and the rear fender!
  10. I like the seat :D My next build is probably going to have a seat like that except I will spring it.

    Sweet bike! One very picky item, that paint job is so nice that the red shim in the the battery sticks out like crazy. Get a different color shim, black or color matched.

    Sorry, my Mom took me shopping to fabric stores to much when I was very young. It's a wonder I'm straight.

    Dude, burnt orange is easily one of my favorite colors. Nice bike. I see you're rockin' the oldschool tires, too.

    Beautiful workmanship:thumbsup:. Obviously a lot of engineering and hard work went into that bike. Colour is just perfect.

    I'm confused. I don't see a red shim. I see red that is a printed logo on the battery though. I agree though. Wrap the battery with something black and it will look better.
