    Loved the video! !!!!!!!!!! Would like to see more of the builds on video - adds a different way to see the bike and the ride into town was lots of fun !
    You did a great job matching to the truck - I think its tougher adding cool patina to a bike than giving it a new coat of paint. Nice work.

    I love the build.The art of putting inspiration into reality is great. I'm also partial to Chevy trucks and to the fact my last name is Touhey :shock: .As soon asI saw the titleI knew I would like it.Nice build my friend.

    Thanks everyone for the kind feedback. It is truly appreciated and taken to heart. I consider it quite an accomplishment for my bike to even be noticed amongst all these awesome bikes and talented builders.

    Yeah I never even questioned it growing up. I assume he was just temperamental. I guess I need to ask my Dad. Wouldn't be a good nick-name to have these days.

    One of my favorites this year Randy. Love how everything looks like it could of been pulled off that truck and slapped on your bike. I sure am jealous of those dirt roads ... ours are mainly gravel and weeds.
