This started as a Revell 1/8th California Hiway Patrol kit.
I converted the frame into a ridgid, bent round aluminum tube for exhaust pipes, extended the kit front end, borrowed some parts from the junk box and turned it into an early 70's style chopper. Thanks for looking.

That's a pretty sweet scoot, I love the ol' skool chops. I've got a couple of the old Revell kits squirrelled away, this makes me want to break one out. Nice work!
