Default Almost "done" shovel

Despite tornadoes in my backyard, snow, death, divorce, joblessness, school jiggery pokery and my family getting completely sick of dealing with me over this bastard, I'm almost done...wiring, chain, carb, and the finer details is all that's left, before I can take it around the block and watch half the pieces fall back off and my zip ties bust apart:

Turned out good while working against all odds!
How much rake does it have?

Bike looks good ! I would be careful in the right hand turn's with that generator case exhaust pipe on the front might be a little low. Hate to see you get into trouble on a tight turn. Just my opinion but hey, skin is'nt cheap.

At least you did not mention food stamps. Tell your ex friends and wives to kiss your ass, and go for a ride. You will forget all your problems, if only for a little while.

Yupper, I want to do custom pipes when money becomes available. There's a couple of "sore thumbs" that I'll take care of.

Your bike is just OK, but the fact that you reference Valorie Solanas in your blog is GREATNESS.
