i dig it man. that shifter/clutch setup is crazy. i think i saw something like that on the rollercoaster at the local carnival. im about 10 mins from philly, hopefully ill see you cruisin' around. there are a few dudes around here that have some pretty cool chops with old 4 banger jap motors. ive seen them a couple times lofting the front wheel every time they hit the throttle. cheap, powerful & different, sounds good to me.

Looks good, does the chain slap the oil tank when you ride it? I had a problem like that on a "long chained" Triumph.

Yeah but in PA you need a front fender. If a cop wants to be a real dick he can ticket you up for it. Its a gamble.

Don't see many Kawi's turned over to the saw. Nice.

It's the original frame but I cut it in half. Reused the front half and bent my own hard tail from steel tubing and welded it on.

I was thinking about using those colors but they wouldn't match my Bajamas. And calling it Timmy would be just asking for a oil leak .Hopefully we'll be riding along this summer with ches co Larry.

I think calling it Timmy and gettign an oil leak would be the least of your problems. I think the desire to where assless chaps to line dancing, bad teeth and a slow leak in the front tire would scare me more. Love the bike though...even if you didn't paint it pink and blue so that we can ride it down to Rehobeth beach and watch the sunrise....HAHAHA. ;)

Polka Dots? I am more into stars and moons...or maybe make it a My Little Pony Theme bike.

Won't the polka dots match your BAJAMAS?
