Very cool bike with great setup and photography :thumbsup: Its fun trying to find all the doo dad details.

Thanks man! Hard to believe I am just using a Samsung S6 cell phone camera and a lot of these pics were done with a 105 heat index and sweat falling into my eyes.

Just shows what you can do when faced with such adversity like a busted frame. Cool bike KF, no doubt.

WOW--super looking car--I mean great job on the photos of the car--you really did a superb job on your build all the way through, even. You the crazy curve in the middle, but you recovered in no less than outstanding form--Prost!

Thanks man. Getting to do the photoshoot with that Shelby Saturday was awesome. The bike and car complimented each other very well.
Honestly I think I like how this build turned out better than it would have been with the FloCycle frame. I was surprised when I counted the days and realized I did this build in only 37 days.

this bike is sickly sweet, yet savory at the same time.

Thanks for discovering this treat for me brother!!! It's a lot more palatable than when you saw it on craigslist and @joel.romeo.79 tagged me.

As usual. Very cool. I really like that tank.

Thanks man. I've wanted to make this tank out of Gaskill's rack even since I got it a few years ago. Just had to wait for the right build.
