    Dodge brought back and modernised the Challenger. Ford brought back and modernised the T-Bird. This bike looks like you brought back and modernised the X53...What a nice bike. WOW!

    I love this build because the detail on it isn't obvious, not until you take a closer inspection! The workmanship on this bike is flawless and jaw dropping!

    Thanks fordsnake!!! I knew being all black details would blend in some but was hoping major mods would lead to closer looks on it as you pointed out. Hope to see you in next year.

    I really like the bars. Looks like they're being blown back from speed!

    This has been one of my favorite builds to follow this year. There is so much incredible work that went one with this one.
