    to start this build i had a pair of blue TUFF2's and a pair of blue AME grips..........
    and i knew i wanted the bike to have that "bully" vibe to it 8)
    i got talked out of tearing down my 20" schwinn at the Galt Rodeo, and a couple of good friends offered me donors to keep the build alive
    it's not quite as radically customized as some of the other builds, but i can't stay out of the garage just looking at it :mrgreen:
    i honestly think the hardest part of this build was deciding when to stop and call it done :shock: i just wanted to keep adding gadgets and stuff...... (see "twice as nice" build :shock: :lol: )
    a HUGE thanks to KuttnhackKustoms, James, and MikeS. for everything! and now i have a new favorite bike :wink:

    Sweet. Excellent photo shoot. Looks like it wants to leap from building to building 'cause it can.

    The bike has FreakBike all over it! You've used a lot of stuff that make this bike demand to be noticed. The seat as well as the sprocket usage proves that you and I are on the same wavelength as to what an "Anything Goes" bike should be. One of my faves of this build off! The Vulture definitely knows what to do with an old carcass! 8)
