    wow your so called "not the best weld I have done" looks like mine a really good day. I wish I had a better system. What do you use MIG, TIG, STICK?

    Keep up the good work, I might have to steal some of your ideas.

    Very inspirational! I´m about to start building a bike for my wife, and you have some neat ideas on this bike. Too bad I can´t weld aluminium, or as great as you do, it would be very helpful for getting the chainguard I want... I´ll probably go with fibreglass.
    Keep building, your going great!

    Well judging for what I´ve seen, you wont have any problems with it.
    I've done a couple of tanks and fenders with FGlass just for one reason... I don't have your metal working mad skills!


    Totally ignoring that last comment, let me tell you that I have been thinking about your build for a long time last night and I think I´ll try fabricating the chainguard with sheet metal. So feel proud, you have inspired this RRB crazy member 8)

    Love it! I really like how the fenders look. I think the front being 1/2" lower than the back looks great, it follows the bottom line of the frame well. Great work!
