    Thanks for the closeup of that back brake setup. You’ve done a fine job FOR A WHIPPERSNAPPER 🙂

  2. RobBobber says:

    That is the sickest exhaust I’ve ever seen!

  3. Grumpy says:

    Love it! Great Job………………….

  4. taffy says:

    nice bike how about a bit of info on it .what size and make tyres?what hardtail is it ?

  5. Jacques says:

    21 years old you say? Hmmmmmm……….looks more like someone with 21 years of bike-building experience to me. My compliments!!

  6. James says:

    BadAss…. That’s one of the best looking bobbers I’ve seen, the pipes make it look like it moving even on the kickstand, nice and clean in the back, low bars, that’s just how I would build one if I had the skill.

  7. El Gaucho says:

    Love it! Great paint, awe-inspiring pipes, great handlebars. Everything looks right, great job. The only thing that could make it any better would be wheel covers out back and a spoked wheel out front with a speedmaster tire. But that’s just my crap opinion, and it’s still badassed anyway so screw it!

  8. Black Betty says:

    WOW!! That is the nicest bike I’ve seen on here in quite a while. They’re all great, but this one really stands out for me. Love the pipes. And great paint choices. Cool rear brake setup too. I dig the nobby tires as well.

  15. blue - collar- cult says:

  16. pickles says:

  17. SenatorX says:

  19. Julián Canon says:

    Definitely spokes …

  20. CruzBoos says:

    Your bitch has me turned and tuned on. You’ve got me looking under her skirt just to see her panties. Candy coated and swirled steel always gets a glance from my side. Seeing this gives me the knowledge that you will always have an XS in your heart such as myself at this age. Keep plugging away and keep them gapped.

  21. Johnny Chop says:

    Saw this at Symco. Sick scoot!

  22. Charlie Lamb says:

    Wow havent been on here in forever, and i noticed my bike was on here with all these nice comments, first off thanks guys, i appreciate it. The horse did publish an article too which they never told me about, i found out from a buddy, lol. i sound like a tool in the mag, but then again i didnt think it would have been published/ used exactly what i wrote, since i threw it together on my luchbreak at work.

    anyways thanks again for all the comments!
