 I just read that.. I hope you got a laugh.. That dude couldn't put a real sentence together to save his life.. He was probably drunk and feeling sorry for himself because he's too afraid to ride a motorcycle lol.

Here are the pics.   Not my best work by any means, but an old dented up, barely running nighthawk I picked up for $200 turned into something that is a lot of fun to ride.   If no one takes it off my hands, I will probably change out the tank this winter to give it better lines.  I hate to sell it, but need room for the next project. 

I don't think the guy is kidding, he is still emailing about it.   I just have fun spell checking the messages and sending back grades on his work.  (D+) I'm probably making him more upset though.... I should probably leave it alone.

Just tell him he is more than welcome to buy it off you and restore it. Maybe even offer any original parts at an extra cost.
I'm not sure, but don't ask Brodie.

Way to many build and half done projects to list here.

What exactly is the point of this thread?  To trash an OP because he doesn't like that bike, or to pile on because we don't like how he said it - or something else?

The bike is not any sort of classic.  Never was and never will be. Does it have a lot that could be critiqued?  For sure.  It's easy to be less than complimentary about the mufflers and clamps, wrapped pipes, hipster brown seat, tank that doesn't match anything, or the short rear fender and missing front one and lack of fork brace or the poor choice of filters.

So, clearly this isn't about the OP not liking the bike.  Is it just that the OP fails to appreciate how hard "we" work on our cafe racers?  If that's what this is about, I'd suggest that there is no "we" and that whoever "we" is needs to understand that when we put our work out in the interweb world, no other person will ever appreciate what we did the way that we do.  That's teh way it works. 

I have created absolute works of art that others failed to appreciate - ungrateful, morons lacking in good taste...

Criticism comes with the gig I'm afraid. If you love your bike, that's great.  That's all that matters.

The point of the thread was just to get a kick out the fact that someone felt so strongly about creating something from a bike he thought was a "Classic".  Thought it was hilarious and wanted to share with people that would understand.  You are 110% right teazer, criticism comes with the gig and as long as I was happy with the way the bike turned out nothing else matters.  I have had a lot more compliments than the one complaint... well two including yours  ;)

I think it comes down to different likes and tastes and the poster of the rude comments sounds a little worked up about something.  Maybe he hates modified bikes.  Who knows. I thought the comments were so OTT that it was funny, but maybe that's just me.  It's hard to get too worked up about that sort of silly response to a an advert however much you dislike something.

The seller appears to have been a bit miffed and looking for support. 

Move along.  Nothing to see here.
