Wow, I mean like WOW. It all came together perfectly. Lovin all the rivets. That thing is an awesome nod to 40's-50's space age sci fi. Makes me want of watching Flash Gordon or MST3K on netflix.

What can be said that hasn't been said already? You have tremendous vision, artistry, craftsmanship and imagination poured into this bike. Yet, I feel it still has a "RAT" quality to it. I love it!
