    In my opinion only the paint is 'ugly'. But it's supposed to be that way, right..? This bike has loads of pottential. That rack/seat set-up is a great idea! You did some serious welding only not on the main frame. The transformation is dramatic! In a good way: You've made a modern bike look like a vintage one. And I don't mean the fake 'old paint', but the bike in general. The lines. It's silhouette. If you said it was a pre 1970, I'd believe you right away.

    Well done.
    And yes, I definately want to see this one done for looks after this build off...

    In my eyes you went for looks this time as well, 'cause it's a bike that looks like it's got attitude! :) Love those springers, and the bars and fender are cool!

    I agree with KOTA. I would jump on that bike and ride it in a second! Cool!

    that home made rack is really cool, and the rat-trap springer is a nice touch (i want one of those!). very cool.
