Wow, that is a serious case of form over function.

I also will be looking forward to watching this build evolve.

I can wait to see this one! Another terrific build coming from your bench, John. That 1:1 bike looks very wild, I wish I could see someone really driving it. It can't be that easy anyway. :)

And thanks for posting a link to this thread in your other WIP thread. Otherwise I might have seen this one the first time in Under Glass. :lol:

Hang on tight ! This is gonna be a wild one. How do you find time to do all this and act too ? I'm guessing that was an April Fool's Joke.

As with all your builds, I'll be checking daily anticipating your next post.

regards,

Jimmy

John.... You are a Rockstar my brother. That is some fantastic work you are doing. That fender looks great and so does the primary cover. Keep up the great work and look forward to see what you get accomplished tomorrow.
