    You obviously have some phat manufacturing skills. This bike is...extremely hard to put into words. Entertaining does come to mind. I keep looking at and finding more and more interesting points you've made.
    Do you build parts for others? I was particularly interested in the triple clamps for your forks. I could use a set like those for one of my bikes.
    Great work. What's on the drawing board??

  7. Wow, phenomenal work! I love it. You nailed the look. It's so clean and well thought out. The attention to detail is like nothing I have ever seen. I'm speechless.

    did you make that chain guard? if you did you should make a few more of those. there is like 2 companies making chain guards for stretched cruiser. i would rather have one of your chain guards then a dyno knock off. your bike is defiantly one of the baddest ever on this site.

    I am not a huge fan of "theme bikes". But this thing is killer. Awesome job.

    Yeah, I made fenders and chainguard.
    At first I created 3D-models:

    Then cut shapes from penoflex:

    And then made fenders and chaiguard, using fiberglass and resin:

    Now I'm starting a new project, so I'm really sorry - I can't do chainguards for sale - no much time;(
    But you can do it yourself - it's not difficult!)

    That's funny. You said "its easy" :lol:

    Now I have a few questions.

    Is the tank part of the frame?
    Did you build it?
    Did you paint the bike yourself?
    Did you also make the rims?
    How much will it cost to ship it from russia to puerto rico? :mrgreen:

    This bike and the swing monster bike are the most awesome builds I've seen. The level of knowledge required to make these pieces of art is astonishing. Amazed and my phone almost overloaded saving all these pictures!

    When I said "it's easy", I mean "It's not difficult to create chainguard yourself" )))

    Yes, the tank is the part of the frame.
    No, I didn't, it's Phat Stretch Delux's frame, I bought it in Germany)
    These rims you can also find in Germany - http://www.robsson.de/
    About painting - you see, I'm a designer, not a painter. I can create anything in Photoshop or another graphic program, but I can't draw it in real life) So, here was the same situation - I've created design of every detail of this bike, found painters and then they painted frame, rims and frenders)

    Thanks)
