I really like anything that looks like someone spent more time than money on. Insperation comes from my father who could build some bad ass hotrods out of junk. Never alot of money involved. Just time and creativity. I cant hardly look at a piece of metal without thinking about its future uses.

You don't need inspiration. All you need is a good starting point, IE a Triumph or just maybe a Harley. Unless that is your into all this arty farty stuff, that's not worth a wank out on the road.

I get my inspiration from the "Ugly and Funny Bikes... the "Short Bus" of pic threads.. " thread. Thats what first inspired me to build a PEZ themed bike and wear my helmet backwards.

Exactly, a great looking engine in a crap rolling chassis. But then that's just me.

If you're serious, I don't understand......the chassis has great lines....proportion, stance, etc etc etc. Very fluid design.

Look i ain't trying to start a fight here, but that thing looks like shite. Come on that engine need's to go in a featherbed frame if you wanna get the best out of it, that is of course unless you just want ta cruse past shop windows and look cool, or roll the thing up to a wall and burn the back tyre out

I'm not into any of that stuff...but I would definitely love to have it in my garage....just to look at when I'm heading for the lawnmower, or fixing the screens. It has two wheels and a motor, and that means I could ride it....not as a daily rider, that's what my bmw is for.

My uncles best friend growing up was pres of a local 1%'er club. Was also our neighbor...
Hearing them all pull up and backing their chops in, lined up the street; window panes all rattling in gram's house, whole house shaking. Springers, girders...."cobweb" and "fade" paintjobs.

I was taught how to correctly "wet sand" ; then they would cut me loose on a running board or some other huge piece.
Blew me away just being able to be "there". Watching them paint tanks, work on bikes... lotta dope, booze, chicks and guns. (Look/watch/dont talk/DONT TOUCH)

Hippie lifestyle, growing up on a dope farm.
