    I've never been much for banana seats either, but it worked out to be an awesome choice on your bike. Honestly, its one of the 3 bikes I like the best in the entire build! Nice job!

    Does it want to wheely with your full weight back on the seat?

    Although I haven't had a whole lot of riding time because I finished right after knee surgery and then took off out of town for a couple week, I did ride it around the block. It doesn't seem to be light in the front and actually rides excellent. My only complaint is how narrow the seat is as I am used to big 'ol vintage spring seats on my rides. I will try a wheelie soon and let you know how it turns out!

    What else can I say that hasn't been said above...
    This is awesome. It reminds me of the Kruger Motorcycles. Not the look or anything, but the all important vibe.
    I think I have found my favorite. For now. I'm going to bed so it'l be my favorite till at least tomorow.
    ;-)

    Seriously.
    This bike is the coolest...

    Thanks again guys! I wish I had time to have new pics shot as I have finished up a couple details I didn't have time to do before. Well, you get the idea anyway. I will repost some "fix it" pics later. This has been so much fun I can't wait a whole year to do it again. With this many builds maybe we should have a RRB Build Off SEMI ANNUALLY!! :D .
