As expected you've turned out quite a bike. Your "tank" is my favorite part and I fully expect to see several imitators. Very well done! LONG LIVE THE KINGfish!

Couldn't resist another ride on SaltHammer today. Rode it by the CarSpa shop that helped me line up the Cobra photos, then just roamed around a bit. Must have talked with 20+ people that wanted to know more about the bike. I love my city!

Now that you've had some time in the saddle, how is it to ride? Considering a bar flip?
Actually the ride is pretty good. I thought it might be a bit uncomfortable like Firewing was, but the riding position isn't as extreme.
Stay tuned for more news on the next chapter with SaltHammer.

SaltHammer has left the building.
The day I finished building SaltHammer for BO11, someone asked to buy it and I said no. Two weeks later I was boxing it up. I never thought I would have sold any of my customs this soon after completion, but this sale felt right. She's in good hands and now two of my Build Off bikes reside in California.
