    Another bike with vintage vibe and hot rod upgrades to increase speed, performance, and 'cool factor' ! Your 'gimmick' style really is ingenious and blended in to the original core of the build so well.

    Kudos on another successful resto-Chad !

    Thank you so much fellas! Great build off this year.

    Rode this about 12 miles today. Nice long walk for the doggy.

    Thank you G-Matt!

    Been having tons of fun on this with the pooch. She handles great in the snow as long as you stay off the hard icy patches.
