    989310FE-7EE2-4D6A-B382-D91B2B969524.jpeg what does three different frames and two different forks have in common?? Well.... if you have a welder a whole lot! This is my entry into the MBBO 2019. Is it completed? Not even close. Is it underway? Absolutely. I’ll post up where I am in the journey currently and take y’all along to the finish line. It’s gonna be wild!! (If the work I have done prior to the build off start puts me out of contention please remove this thread and let me know!)

    That's a good start.
    Now let's talk about the Kawasaki.
    And maybe a word or two on the trike!

Built the rear section from fiberglass then laid some flake! The truck is a 1987 Mazda b2200 cab plus I body dropped and bagged. I like a diverse group of things haha. The trike was built for my son when he required emergency brain surgery in summer 2017. We assumed he would need the extra wheel to ride again. We were wrong. He has recovered well and rides his 1969 western flyer muscle bike all over!!

    The flake. The FLAAAAAAAAKE!
    I used to have an 82 Yamaha Seca. Love that era of Japanese steel!
