    Must brag. My brother has been a meticulous builder since the 60’s. Has the expertise and patience not many possess. Never had a lame project to my knowledge. Great job again.

    Very Neet & complete. Very Beneficial Results for the Time & $ s Invested. What was you E. T. @ the track ? How did you view the competition of the other entries in 2016 as very tough ?

     
    • Charles B says:

      Ha ha. Obviously the photo was not a drag race. All the bike show contestant placers rode their bikes down the drag strip for a crowd pleaser. I thought some of other bikes at the contest were very high quality too but they were not built from scratch like mine. They were purchased from custom bike shops. Thanks for the comment.

    Nice Ride!!

     
  • Linda says:

    I love this bike. My husband built it from the frame up. Including the paint job which is beautiful. Completely wired it himself. The wiring is completely concealed. My only question is where is my seat? 😍
