I thought this site was about rat rodding and new ideas not to put down anyone's ideas no matter how radical they are.
No kidding. One of the things I like most about this website is the civility and support of members for each other here, let alone the unbelievable imagination and talent.
How about keeping the negative comments to yourself, Mastro - it was way out of line. If you don't like something, please just pass it by and leave it to those who appreciate it to do the commenting.

hey now, everyone calm down. yes gaskill's ideas ae radical, to say the least, but ingenious, cool, and very original. now dont anyone go knockin' his work, 'cuz "Big Daddy" Roth wuz pretty radical too. and we all know him as a great man with a legacy all his own. Gaskill has cobbled many bikes together, and it seems they all have this trend of being something thats vintage, cool, and built around the idea of speed, not practicality.
oh and jim i think your right.

Hey guys, I really appreciate the responses i've been getting. Its an honor to be talked about along with the Big Daddy. I never figured out what the fuss was in the first place. When i hot rod anything, I try to bring something very new to the table. I'm going to continue striving to be weird in what i build and quite different. Some aren't going to like it and some will. But in the end i've made you stop, stare, and ask questions. That, to me, is what its all about.

Here is also a picture of the pit bike "mother's little helper" that will accompany the Dove. It all started as a beater western flyer then a little work here and there, and now look 40 years older. It has the capabilities to hold a small spare wheel on the side rack. not shown
