Congrats on BOTM !! Well done and well deserved.
Your build has that 'right' (maybe authentic is what I mean) look. Tasty indeed tumb2 tumb2
I really like how you addressed the bobber seat mount. It's one of the many head scratchers you have to figure
out when you start cutting big.
Yeah and this too..

Wow HOTT, thanks! Means a lot coming from you. You have built some really great bikes!! Ol' sparky was my inspiration, but then the riding season was slipping by on me so I went with the sort of "old school, kinda rat-bike, patina thing", saved a lot of time and actually turned out pretty cool. :-D :-D
