    A lot of work and money but still not visually balanced. At least not to my eye.

    Exaust is ridiculously stupid. Looks like a vacuum cleaner body with pipes sticking through it. Oh yes and the stupid headllight too, get rid of it.

    I wonder if the builder ever stood back and took a good look at what they were building. I don't care for it for all of the reasons posted plus the thing has turn signals. The mismatched wheels was the first thing I noticed plus the ugly exhaust system. To each his own, I guess.

    I seem to recall quite a while back around when powder coating was first getting popular I built a shovel head that I painted yellow and then powder coated the cone,tin primary and some other parts a sort of purple flake color. I can't even explain this aberration ... I know I was off drugs by then.
