    I think I have to agree that the handlebars look small in comparison to the scale of everything else.
    However, the end choice is always in how it rides when finished, and I know you would not hesitate to change it if you don't like your final result.

    Glad to be able to watch this creation to stave off the withdrawal symptoms from b09.

    Keep that fire burning and stay safe.:thumbsup:

    You should tune in to my Muscle bike build then Gdcast!

    This build will be on hold while the MBBO is on, but will return better than ever!

    Still on-going, currently sitting in my lounge room awaiting it's turn.
    It does not require much to finish it, just ran out of time before the Muscle-bike Build-Off started.

    Luke.

    Since my health has been bad lately, I passed on a couple of builds to @kelvin hahnel, last I heard this one was fully built, riding and getting stripped down for powder coat, but I have not heard since, hopefully he will update us!
