    I have seen this baby in person, it is one AWESOME bike! Tons of fabrication, really cool features & details. I would be proud to own it but I am sure I would be outbid due to lack of funds! Kevin: fix the pics so you can show what it looks like now. I think it will be a great rider also! (he wouldn't let me take a test ride though!) :mrgreen:

Raial lace on the front (already had spokes) lol. The rear we used the Choppers US 36 spoke freewheel disc hub, stainless black spokes, polished nipples, Avid BB5 rotor with a 3X lace pattern.

    Alright now for the drive terrain. We used the Origin8 bottom bracket euro conversion with the Truvativ 68 X 113 mm square taper cartridge bottom bracket.

    The Sinz expert cranks are a nice fit for this. 165 mm with a 5 bolt spyder. The chain ring is a 38 tooth from Kingstar. Bolts are Origin8 chrome 4mm singles.

    Now its time to start making this bike look like its name. We are going to start rolling some tubing and building the rear fender.
    The rear fender is going to be a open skeleton using 8 pcs. of tubing.

    We made custom chain tensioners out of a chunk of aluminum, a washer, nut and a bolt. We also cut a piece of steel for making the rear disc brake caliper mount.

    Didn't want to leave the front out. Forks came with the caliper tab. Easy bolt on stuff up front.
