    Thanks buddy, yep I made it! Maiden voyage went off without a hitch, bike rode great, though we only rode about 15 miles! I couldn't be happier with how it turned out, it was quite the jaw dropper, lol!
    I'll post pics of tonight's ride in a minute.
    Already have another ride tomorrow night!

    These are a couple of shots of the Bonneville Roadster's maiden ride and debut at Houston's Friday Night's Critical Mess ride...the ride was great and the bike rode and performed flawlessly!

    One nice custom in a sea of...well, other bikes, lol.

    This was at the halfway point...

    The rest are 'after the ride' shots around downtown Houston.

    I'd love to! Just to get pics of it on the flats, but being that Bonneville is 1,600 miles from Houston, well...I just couldn't pull it off by the deadline, lol!

    Well after two rides in two nights, totaling around 30 miles total, I LOVE this bike!
    It rides great, goes fast and stops quick!

    I may sell off all my other bikes and just keep this ONE!!
    Haha, not really, but I could not be happier with how well this bike turned out!

    Here's some pics from Saturday nights ride...

    By the way, if your in the Houston area and into Rat Rod bikes come on out and ride with us, every Saturday night! Check out RustyRidersHouston on Facebook for details!
