Started with the 1/12 R.M. Kustom Chopper "Torch" mediocre kit. Got my soldering iron out and bondo to make this. Stripped and rechromed the reformed pipes & fork. Painted HOK Burple.

Outstanding! Maybe these reality show guys that build unrideable bikes should take a lesson in cohesive design from that fine example you built.
