    While digging around the garage for a gooseneck for another project, I found the original gooseneck for the Rocket. It's the cool kind with just one bolt to tighten it in the forks (flips) and keep the bars up!! The whole neck is only about 5 inches long!! Since the 2nd bolt is no longer there, I had to remount the headlight on top of the neck. Looks kinda cool

    I guess we need to see what kind of Build off it is going to be..
    If it's a Pixie Build off..I have a few neat idea's

    It will be a VERY SHINY PAINT FINISH what ever the build off is..
    I think a few people think I'm a lover of Rust :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:
