    Do you like copper/faux copper finish/pop rivets?

    I sure do.

    Is that paint chipping/rust scale on your fork lowers? No problem, just paint over it!

    Did you blow your proverbial wad on copper!?! No money for handlebars? That's no problem, at all. Just use what you've got and do so improperly!

    Shortening cables to a reasonable length is for chumps, say I! Use the same ones that have been in use since 1966! Vintage cables! Not those fake vintage cables you see everywhere nowadays.

    Just another great example of something that could have been done right for the same time and money, which instead is a joke.

    Imitators? Seems like putting all my electrics in tubes and boxes of copper would be a bad idea... also, super cool "flush mounted brake light" that looks like its held in place with two phillips head screws.

    I've seen worse here.....
    Great spirits have always found violent opposition from mediocrities. The latter cannot understand it when a man does not thoughtlessly submit to hereditary prejudices, but honestly and courageously uses his intelligence and fulfills the duty to express the results of his thought in clear form.

    Upside down superbike bars. Shit paint on fork lowers. Copper handgrips are an intriguing idea. I don't hate them. too bad he didn't take the time to polish a few details. If it's a bike he rebuilt to ride around himself and has decided to sell, he could have done much worse, but I suspect he's just trying to make a profit, and get his start in the "cafe custom" world.

    C'mon, be nice. He's got 100% feedback.

    Oh shit. Only as a buyer though.

    Huh. I'll be damned. He even bought the rivets on eBay.

    Too funny. I guess it's an eBay world.

    Cheers
