    Certainly reminds me of a drag car...
    The whole combo looks cool.

    Congratulations on your unofficial 2nd place! !!Love the bike, looks like it should be racing on a dry lake bed, or tearing around a wall of death. Beautiful

    Congrats @MONARKofSoCal !!!
    Send me you address via the PM I sent you so that I can ship your 2nd Place Prize to you.
    Killer build. One small part that I really like on this build is how well the scallops work on the tank!
