    Wow, that looks fantastic... the white is really sharp. Everything blends together beautifully.

    That looks great. Giving me some great thoughts on my own Switchblade... What size tires are you running there?

    Thank you! Tires are 24"x3.45" on a 2.5" rim front and back... the combo clears the chain just enough

    Is that the 3G Imperial fork? I kinda had my eye on one from US Cycles. It's a double springer.

    You have that biked decked out but why didn't you go with 3-piece cranks to finish it off?

    Do not think he needs a three peice crank. The one on it goes great with the feel of the bike. Smooth and clean. Even the crank arms have a nice modern look trhat goes. I am not one for a shiney bike but I think it looks great.
