How much is the hardtail stretched?
I don't know, I never measure that. It's stretched enough to make all the proportions correct. It's probably something like ~3" longer than a swingarm, maybe 4".

great looking bike, very clean and simple.

Exhaust kinda looks like a mirror version of what I did on my bike:

Wow, thanks!

I *wanted* to keep it, but I'm kinda light on customer work right now, so I stuck it on the Bay last week with a weird buy it now and we'll finish it concept I'm tryin out. If it doesn't sell, I'm thinking some kind of burgandy or dark red with dirty cream or gold leaf scallops. Lots of polished stuff, probably about the same mix of finishes as my black BSA. Of course the wheels and spokes will stay shiny on this one.
