I've drooled over that bike for years now, and wish i knew the man behind it. Congrats to Greencheezeeta!!!!! I know you're still watching us!!!!!




Never noticed the rear brake delete, lol. Did we not have enough pics with the R6 tail? I really like it when he did that swap.

Yes, he did. He finished it, washed it & took pics & emailed me to see if I liked it. Later, he rode out & showed me. He was so happy!


Word from experiance: NEVER say your bike is done! Say you can't think of anything else you want to do to it right now, or you may do more later, etc. Just don't "finalize" it, because each little mod makes it special. Even if it's a tiny thing that no one else would notice, it 's uniquely yours...part of who you are & so D*MN cool! I LOVED watching Gavin's bike change as he did!! He expressed so many facets of his special personality through Z-King.............all of you do that through your own bikes. I offer my respect to each & everyone of you.
