What an incredibly creative and "rockin" build brother!!!
Who else would or could build a freaking tanklifier for their bike!!!!???
Thanks for bringing your skills and fun to the show.
And it's not just cool because of the novelty of it. Naw man, this was a well thought out and executed stretch build that looks killer!!
BRAVO MAN!!!
