Default This is the bike i'm trying to take to the Smoke Out.

The motors i have for this bike are getting taken to Detroit in the morning to be gone through, and a few more parts to make, and the paint,and powder. This is the 5th tank my dad made for this bike. As he puts it"we need to get this fuckin thing done, i'm tierd of working on it". He's loves working on bikes, and he has made everything on this bike. He has reworked the frame,check out the down tube, made everything but the motor, did shave off the shark fin though, the wheels. He made EVERYTHING on this bike from scratch. Thanks alot dad. So let me know what you think. [IMG][/IMG] [IMG][/IMG] [IMG][/IMG] [IMG][/IMG]

Ride it like it's stolen, cause part of it might be.

The handlebar setup 's got me scratchin' Me head. Is it setup for two sets of bars?
I actually dig the bizarre fuel tank, I hope you dont paint it, just put some gibbs on it. the rear "Dino" fender I think would have looked better if it were more
like the fuel tank design, (flat, not actually protruding out in 3D).
definitely different.

As long as youre Taking it to the Smoke out, not Riding it to the Smoke out then no worries, rite?

Maybe think on making the rear longer & leveling the bike to ground , lowering the seat, etc, make it sit rite.

Looks like Pops spent a lot of time on making all the parts. Just all the neat parts need to go together a bit different.

Just my opinion. Good on you for getting in there & making it to begin with though.

Got Pics of the first 4 tanks he made? :-)
