    Great work - bike looks great!! Those Bub pipes are the icing on the cake.

    Are your side covers just vapor blasted? Finish looks awesome!

    You need to get started taking some nice photos of your bike. I’m assuming there will be another calendar this year and nominations will start before you know it! :thumbsup:

    Well I just watched that whole video and just let me say, I’m in love with that bike! It is absolute eye candy! The amount of detail and the quality of components are superb. Really well done.

    I love the sound of your bike ( let me know when you wanna sell that Bub exhaust! :D) And the area around your home is just about perfect for zooming around on your little speed racer, with the rolling hills and gentle curves and the tree canopy, great video too. I’m telling you, get some quality beauty shots of your bike because I’m nominating you for the next calendar.;)
    By the way, missed opportunity to get on the board in the photo contest, a picture of your bike with an old barn.
    I’ll bet near you there are a bunch of old barns.

    Thanks! I'm located in Lancaster county pa. I'm about 2 miles from the maple grove drag strip. I have a number of locations I plan to attempt to take photos at. So sorry for the long video. That was my first attempt at using a gopro. I still plan to do a much more in depth video showing what was done. And thanking a bunch of people that really without them and this forum would not have been done.
