Nice work, but I'll be the asshole and say those bars and riser together really Leroy an otherwise decent bike. Just doesn't seem to fit with the rest of it, but it's yours, not mine.

I've never seen Leroy used quite that way before, but it's the perfect word and I agree. The brass gives it a kind of gold-tooth look IMO.

But as has been said, it's your bike and you're the only one who has to be happy with it.

i really like the strut placement on the swingarm, and the lack of a fender strut how it leaves the whole wheel open, cool bike.

yank off those Bars, But keep the Risers.......then....
slap on a straight Drag Bar. Gold Leaf added to the black Tank, Fender......&
a little Gold pin striping on the Frame Neck.
Ditch the air Cleaner, & install a small
cast Brass item instead.

the way the bike sits now, those risers instantly draw ones eyes to them.
I believe when a person looks at a bike, that very instant, the eyes should
be drawn right to the Motor or perhaps the Tank, with all
other parts blending into the rest of the bike
in liquid flowing sort of way.
does that make sense?

Those Risers do look kind of Fat, I think they would look
better if they were a tad skinnier.... So I would not be against
the idea of just changing them out too.

Man I feel like I'm that simon dude on star search criticizing
ya'lls Bike.....But I really do love your Bike, Just needs a little
fine tuning ya know.

Please put some plain risers and drag bars or chimps or super bars or anything else timeless on there. The bike deserves it.

Nice progress, but I've got to agree with the others, change the bars and risers.

Bike looks great! Bars and risers are kind of funky, but first and formost, lose the devil sticker on the oil tank. Nothing says class like a shitty sticker.

That wasnt a gouge at you (although I dont like brassy shit on a bike) I was fucking with Fredo because his people like things that are golden.

Ieeee popeeee! I figured that one out. Ha Ha (no ass licking here) I respect your view as I do like the way you build bikes. Maybe chroming the bars would blend better but I didnt want to wait any longer.

Dude, you got something good. It's just those risers are a little blatant. The bars rock, throw some short black risers and your set!
