Re: Grumpy's new toy [step by step Custom Bike Build]

I know there's still a hunderd and one things missing on that bike, but, honestly, am a bit /a lot/ dissapointed with that one.
It looked differently while in the workshop and I think that Ger can build a nicer bikes than this one...
Doesn't do it for me

it's the colour, black frame really blended with saddle, tyres & engine before, while contrasting with the old skool gunmetal grey tank, mudguards & wheels.





the void behind the engine could have been filled with a feature X pipe exhaust ;



or maybe that's needed for stuff ?
