The Beginning Of "The Fish Bike"

It's a LAND-SHARK!! Cool concept, I'll be tuning in for it.

PLEASE PUT THE LANDSHARK LOGO ON THIS CREATURE! That would be SO badass!

Anyways. Sucks to hear about the bolts my man. Not sure what the picture is supposed to be showing, but looks good anyways? As far as dropping so much on tools, the best lesson I've learned yet, "Beg, borrow, and steal" from other wrenches. You don't need to go out and spend 120 bones on the 1/4 in. drive torque wrench just so you can get one bolt of your bike. Borrow from a shop or something. It's a good way to make connections and later on get things done at a discount rate.

This is how my project started....Now i'm all for borrowing and all that. But someone that used to be a good friend of mine (I even gave em a free GS650...he didn't have a bike)...Said to me "Why don't you get your own tools"....Just to be a D-bag one day....I wasn't even using his tools it's his dads shop and I was helping him with the free bike I gave him....Anyways You live you learn you get your own tools and keep all the future bikes for yourself....

....Land Shark logo....(thinking about it, i'm sure they'll find some way to sue me....oh well)

I would've cut that bastards spleen out with a rusty pocket knife. Nothing in the world that infuriates me more than people like that.
 
You know we're always here to egg on some Assault and Battery!
 
So after reading the Landshark comment I did a little pokin around... depending on how you wanna go

I like that shark picture, The Bad ass one(not sure where I would put it)....Paint is def going to be a hang up on this bike So far I want Some Kawi Green & Black...I was thinking Green Frame, Spray On Bed Liner Black on the tail & tank With Kawi Green Fish Scales....not sure if I should use Red or white to break up the colors tho....What do you Guy's Think? Any photo shop masters??(I suck at it) are welcome to see what it would look like A zebra fish if you want.....
 
.....Motor Evicted!.....next step Frame Mods.....I'm On the look out for REARSETS (Trades Welcome)!!! USED is fine gonna have to make my own linkages too so it seems

I may have to pick up a six-pak of that see if it's Worthy

It's pretty good. Beats Corona, but for "Island style" beers I think Longboard is my favorite.
 
It's Roller Time.....I had no idea These Clip Ons would be so sikk
