I know my bike isn't exactly what everyone here is looking for, but I got some good tech help here, so I thought I'd share some pics. They were doing pictures of my bike for The Horse magazine, so I stood behind and to some of my own.
Thanks for all the comments. I'll answer some of the questions.
First off, the front suspension works great. I don't know that I would try it on anything faster than this, but it works here and makes people ask questions.
That is the battery on the hardtail section. My buddy made the tray, my sister sewed the cover and the strap is a dog collar.
The seat is a reproduction of a Brooks saddle. I wanted a brooks, but it was out of my price range. The rawhide grips are similar to the leather bicycle grips that Brooks makes, except mine were made of two hours of me sitting there wrapping them.
The one thing I'm most proud of and took the most time is the one thing no one ever notices, the kickstand. That thing was a pain in the ass but out of about 6000 custom bikes it was the only one of its kind there.
Thanks for not beating me up for it not being a cafe bike.
Here's a picture of what it looked like the day I got it.
Shaun, it was nice to meet everyone up there at Roanoke. I was impressed with the number of cool bikes at Martin's that night. You have a lot better bike and hot rod scene up there than we do here in Greensboro. I hope to be back up there again soon.
