    That is nice. You have good taste. I guess all those years you were paying attention!

    This bike looks amazing. The paintwork on the tank and frame is what makes it so special

    Does it have brakes?

    Nicely done. I've been waiting to see how this one turned out. Looks awesome.

    So many good bikes this year, but yours stands out as something really special. Love it! 8)

    I know we are not supposed to talk about the definition of RAT but WOW you have nailed it all right there. Using what you had, a new paint job made old looking for perfect patina look, not too over-bearing on anything, some custom fab work. I love it nice job.
