    Thats a really fantastic showrod you are building.

    I love your shop, and all your bikes. I love your ideers, and the craftmanship that goes hand in hand with the little details you build!
    I find the dash awesome! Headlight are briliant!

    But I fail to see why you put do much focus on every detail. And still manages too put your steribg wheel on the wrong site! :rolleyes: :cool: :D

    Change nothing, love everything! Get at it, and Follow it true, in same pace and manner as you started out!
     
  20. Taking shape very nicely. JW:)
