I like your work! The low bars are definitely an improvement, probably be a Hell of a lot more comfortable, too.

How dependable is that sight glass on the tank? I'm sure it works good for knowing how much gass you got, seems like a little plastic tube like that would leak pretty quick.

I love how the bike turned out - now just cut the pipes a bit shorter and you're set.
