    Nice work G! You successfully captured the design and hot rod whimsy of your icons! Ed and George would be proud!

    Love the bike, actually really like that it doesn't have a banana seat for some reason!
    :thumbsup: Glad you enjoyed it!

    Luke.

    The more I look at this the more I realize it does have some old school flavor.
    With the overall rake and the twin lights it has a bit of a praying mantis feel to it.
    Purple mantis bike, definitely something you might have seen back in the day.

    Looks great.

    Nicely done Matt. You def captured that 60's custom vibe.

    Me too! He's pulled the no banana off better than I've ever seen and that seat looks super comfy!

    Really like the way the rack ties in the sissy bars, might have to look into something like that in the future.

    That is an awesome color job on that frame. Kenda Flame looks nice on the back with that rack... it's whack. My favorite thing on this is that pinstripe! What a cool contrast to that paint! BAD TO THE BONE!

    Ever heard that saying?: 'If you have nothing good to say, say nothing at all'
