I like Max's bike a lot and think it's right on. I wonder what it would look like w/ out the wheel cover.
I like highly finished period bikes like Scott Craig's. They're really expensive to build.
I'm particularly fond of bikes that make no sense, like that Mochi guys. That's one of my favoritest bikes ever. Tons of the Japanese bikes are senseless and that's fun.
It does bug me though when people try to define their bikes by the parts on them (Bates, Aris, Wassel, etc.) and pay a bunch of money thinking that shit is going to make them the next 'fifteen minutes of fame' chopper building hero. The same thing happens in the Hot Rod world, but it's way worse.
I guess all of this is why I have a few bike projects going at once. It's fun to build different styles of stuff. I like riding, but I like building more. It's what I've chosen to do my 'advanced studies' in, when I should probably focus the energy on getting a Masters or help feed the homeless.
I don't have the luxury of having tons of local friends who are into period bikes, choppers, diggers, whatever and want to ride all the time. I wish I did.
All that said, I'm about ready to quit this message board shit altogether. You can't ever really get to know someone unless you're face-to-face. And it seems like this has all turned into just one more way to reach for the bar of fame. That turns my stomach. I'd rather let my bikes speak for themselves. If they end up on some message board, so be it. They won't be put there by me. Read it ..

We had a pretty good ride down to ATX,I was truely happy to see Shanti riding a bike that he really wants,but needless to say my bike might get the overhaul it needs now.So now is just as good as any other time.Also all of you that rode Pancho are true to the ride.Rouser just is'nt some handsome man on the internet either,see you in a few weeks for some salty water.Jerry you're always cool,i need to come to Houston.Mike fucking Diaz thanks for the ride home.Now i guess i gotta go put a Sporty together.Chris you are a ruler for just being there,just in case.

Just one rant before I go.Let someone touch your child that was a popular pop singer way back and then get back with me.I really don't want to hear give'em a break,and to the parents that LET their children go stay with the pop singer,you're just as fuct up.I don't care how cool he used to be,the guy is a peice of shit.Always little boys too.

These things maybe do work ,but are starting to mess with my head a little.I will continue until I quit this sorry habit,$50.00 a week can buy some cool parts at the end of the month.
