That bike does look nice and clean, but what the heck was that guy thinking with that dorky looking front numberplate thing. Those headlights look like some cheap aftermarket fog lights from a grocery store. Other than that one area, I don't think it looks like a bad bike. But you kinda have to ask yourself what market is that guy trying to go after? I'm not too sure about the point of that bike....just my opinion.

Definitely been struck hard with the ugly stick.

It is fairly true to the east-coast dirt track look.

My concern is that he doesnt mention hardfacing the rockers -- only replacing parts. He is using a White Bros. cam, which is a re-grind. I learned the hard way that this is a big no-no. :excuseme:
