What we've got here is...8 feet of failure to communicate.

Started with what I think is a 50 Higgins frame, added a custom drag fork, alot of frustration and anger. Followed by a custom king/queen seat, a little paint and mural work. And viola, what started out as a very long titled rock band homage became......
JC Draggins.

Only finished pic I have right now.




It's been a heck of a bumpy ride, but I made it. Thanks for hanging out to see if I had a meltdown or the bike got finished.

This was my first build that I used my welder on. You can all thank @CRASH for that.....

















Drag Fork.



Anyway, it's finished and I can take a break now. I'll edit the first post as soon as I can.

What no wheelie vid?!?!....:21:

This turned out way cool. Was a lot of fun watching you toil away on it as well. Way to git'r done! Loved listening to the Type O Negative for the first time too.

That paint job is killer!
HAHAHAHAHA NO, I'm not rebuilding that fork again.

Glad you like them, one of my favorite bands. Since you enjoyed the covers check out life of agony "don't you forget about me". A cool cover of the simple red breakfast club song, and another favorite band.

Glad you like the paint, the most tedious I've done.
