It's a 1/25 scale air cleaner from Parts by Park if I remember right
And the bike in the background is my WIP bike.

Good looking build Whiplash. I'm glad to see more big scale mtc's showing up. The "in progress" bike in the background look's like a winner also.

Cool bike. I have an old biker/car friend who built a real Triumph chopper in the late seventies, and it was also called Purple Haze.... purple is his favorite color.

Nice bike! I really dig those handlebars you made. Gives the bike a nice "flow" to its look.

Thanks Matt! I had to make those at the last minute and pretty pleased with how they came out. Just don't like the ape hanger type.
