    Man, these are some tuff looking bikes! I've always liked the look of the ape hangers. Here is a bike I did last summer.

    Here's a few from member "peterbuilt". These pics are in memory of him.

    When I slowed down building, he's the one that inherited most of my parts. He learned very quickly on how to bend forks. He used a 1/2" bender, where I always used a 1" bender.....He passed taking a nap at 42.

    That's very sad. What caused his death?

    He had a heart attack. He used to call me "old man". I'd tell him "Shut up kid". It's been 2 years. His family is doing well. His teen daughters are driving, and one is entering college in the fall.
