    your last bike def showed skill in the metal crafting department so I have to ask....why build what someone else has already done? I mean classified moto in the US has already put their stamp on the binelli tank virago thing - why not make a new better looking, more useful tank? or even better a monocoque style aluminum body that looks kinda like the old tracy bodies from the 70's. Don't mind me I am on a tracy body kick this week.
    Frankie, the Big Kahuna: What does that mean, "we're not in?"
    Annette: Wild guess? I think it means they're not in.
    Bobby: Boy, it's quite a piece of dialogue when you intellectual masterminds get together! I should be writing this down!

    Frankie, the Big Kahuna: But what does "we" mean?
    Bobby: [impossibly sarcastic] I think it's the plural form, meaning "more than one." Would you like me to conjugate that for you, Pop? Do you know what "conjugate" means, Dad?

    Do you think using the same diameter pipe after the 2-1 collector might be a bit restrictive?

    Looks good though.
