    Cool bike, I'm afraid it does not meet the rules for the MBBO competition though...

    Rule 1- Must meet at least 2 of the following 3 criteria to be considered a Muscle Bike:

    1: Rear tire larger than the front. (wider or taller or both.)
    2: Banana seat.
    3: Ape hanger bars.

    Rule 2- Entire build must be done between 1st September 2015 and 1st January 2016, you are expected to start a build thread and post progress pics as you go, please don't just build away and expect to jump in at the last second with a finished bike, you can enter at any time before the deadline, but the build must not be finished when you enter.

    Great bike!

    Luke.
