it's actually still my design, Biltwell and I have an agreement and I get a small royalty on every set that's sold.....so, Thank you for your purchase.

I started making them by hand about 15 years ago and Biltwell is manufacturing them now.

Not feeling that chain guard personally but if it fits what you're going after then run with it!!! The lines of that seat are sexy though.

Exactly what I said.... I saw this bike on instagram first and decided I should check out JJ because I havent been on in a long time. Great stance. Gives me some inspiration to get something done on my project. I'm looking forward to seeing more progress.

Playing around with more paint ideas. I keep coming back to the ebony and ivory combo.

A high quality black with an "antique" or "aged" white with a tiny silver leaf pinstripe between the two gets my vote.... If we're voting

Yup exactly! white would be antique/pearl/off white-ish. I like your idea of the silver leaf pin stripe. Here's a tank I had painted with the silver leaf and might do something similar.
