    ok, so what part of this is actually a "racer"? Just curious?

    Thank you for the warm welcome. I can find other forms if this is not the correct one. Just thought I'd share. And to answer your question I guess it depends on what type of race.

    I don't know what the "correct forum" would be for this to be honest. Actually, I don't even know if these bikes have a name yet, other than "Copies of Daryl's bike from the walking dead".

    you know what, at least it's more useable than some of the "cafe racer" hackery most newbies post here so...welcome. How about an actual spec sheet so we can know what work went into it, what stuff you actually did, and what you farmed out?

    Only thing farmed out was spraying the matte clear. Everything else was by me. EBay rear shocks and mufflers. (Sound really good ) ebay hoop and lighting. I left the air box as I didn't want to deal with pods. I actually had the front end before the bike.

    Looking forward to this site.

    Some decent road rubber would help sell me. Doesn't make a lot of sense to spend all the time and money on the front end while going ultra crap on the rear. I can see it could be a fun bike to ride on the road with some changes, but I don't get what your supposed to do with it the way it is. Needs fenders too.

    I was going to say that there is one on every fourm but in this case there seems to be two. I looked through Getto67 posts and if that guy ever had anything good to say I think the site would crash.

    That being said, I didn't build it to carve corners as its mostly straight roads here. I just wanted a cool looking bike. I was proud of what I accomplished in a few weeks work but after talking to you guys it seems like it's ready to be pushed out to the road for the trash.

    At least it was built not bought. You may have a full on custom built from the ground up bike (haven't seen it ) but that is not what I was looking for.

    Shouldve done YOUR research before posting here...

    Geeto was being kind.

    You ruined a decent bike. Can you post a pic of you riding it?
    Please?

    Fuck all of you guys. Get into your little circle jerk and have fun. Thought this may be a pretty cool message board but damn, you guys are assholes.
