    sorry I dont have any working pics but i recently went through a big flood almost a year ago now and lost most everything i own luckily this bike was the first thing in the back of the truck!!!! lol

    So it started as the black bike on the left....

    Then I turned it into this with the help of some powder coat, that seat is actually off of my old folding Dahon :) !!! (rip lil buddy big trucks always win against folding bikes :( )

    I wanted more Outta this Bike I wanted a fat front tire so bad!!! so with the help from a 79 cbr 500 I got some triple trees and started fitment. the stem was way to short so i had to trim the Head tube, if youve never done this it is a royal pain in the kyster!! an old huffy miss america donated me some apes and walmart lied to me and said the seat was water proof never trust the walmart! I cut the pedals up too! i think they looked cooler, ones black cause im still unsure if i like bare or black haha

    then ideas were sparked from watching the Fugsley Build, I always wondered if those harley tires fit and then I was shown they did!!! Thanks KingFish! you da man, F.F.L. (Fugsley For Life!)

    Love it man!
    There is some very cool stuff going on with this beast!
    Love the way you warped the chain around the tire. Kinda like what Angelina does with a bullet in that assassin movie.

    Nice work! Maybe make a guard / cover for it so it looks like a primary cover on a chopper? Awesome work keep it up!

    Brakes are good! How have you stopped that mount plate from spinning?
