They’re hot commodities. I’ve had 2. Eric has one and CC got the other. ‘Round these parts in this thread we don’t need no stinkin’ swingarms!

This morning I spent some time scrubbing down my tank with acetone. I picked this guy up because I loved the way it aged. The interior is mint as well. So I scrubbed it down, hit it with an adhesion promoter, and then put on several coats of matte 2k clear. I absolutely love it! I think it sets the tone for the bike quite well.

Yep that tank is allkinds of rad and will hopefully get the mad scientist's brain going. Yourast bunch of projects as rad as they were had more function than creation. Looking forward to seeing the creative juices in this one.
