    He calls a 500lb otherwise stock motorcycle "the cat". They must have some fat sluggish kitties in cyprus.

    Its a a scenester bike meant to sell his business more than it will get ridden.if he actually rides it the bike will probably turn to trash the first pothole he hits.

    Color me disappointed and unimpressed.

    or this one:


    I like how the ill conceived chain shiftier linkage has appropriate slack... Must have followed the rules for drive chain where you need slack for swing arm movement. All this shit on an cm400. No wonder we get stupid questions here if these are the trends.

    Hey, that bike would look great with only a few changes, like adding the stock seat, tank, handle bars, good tires, longer shocks and................

    Which bike gonzo?

    You know what's a lost art? Engraving. I have a bunch of engraved 70's sportster parts and compared to what I see now the stuff is magnificent. Maybe the drugs are not as good now.

    bingo !..... seriously tho.. with all of the spare time I have in retirement and not much riding in Chicago winters, I was thinking of trying a bit of pin striping or maybe airbrushing ..... ... but I do have a bunch of covers and might try engraving. Does tandy make a kit for that? ... Or maybe wood burning hmmmmm....

    I think this is tasteful.

    Bike:
    Buell X1
    Honda S90 (box of parts)
    Honda CB750C (runs)
    The Others (mostly rolling wounded)
