    So to start this is a bike I've wanted to do since obc earlier this year. A friend named Calob makes these tail draggers that are a hoot to ride.

    Tequila sunrise (kustom ruff hornet)

    So what have I been up to? Well other than building handlebars (patina kustoms on fb) I've also been working on this for a client. This is my first stab at a ruff cycle and wanted it super clean.
