This is my first build off and my first muscle bike. I am very pleased not only with the results, but the experience as well. This site is so much fun. Thank you all for your help and entertainment.

The wheels were built by your truly. The rims are new (Araya 7x knock offs). 26 inch rear and 24 inch front. The front is radial laced for maximum bling effect!
Repurposed thumb shifter mounted suicide style on the lay back seat post.
