OK, glad to know your not dead! You have been thinking for a l...o...nnnnn...ggggggggg ass time! Its a rebel dude! Aside from completely redesigning the entire frame, making new motor castings, fabing your own tins, and forging new parts from the flames of hell; you only have so many options! I hope you shock me though!

Not trying to bust your balls man, just givin you a little hell, I was wondering were the hell you had gone?

HAHAHAHAH this made me laugh!!!!!! i know man, you speak the truth but im sooo indecisive sometimes.... i just need to throw it together and modify it along the way.

heres a couple of pics... i figured i prob wouldnt have a passenger on this bike since its too slow to get out of its own way with just one person on it so i got rid of the passenger peg mounts to clean up the frame a little, also got rid of the airbox mount tabs because i will be running a K&N pod filter.
