I should mention its also the first bike I built. I'd never chopped a frame or set up rake and trail, or built a fender, or modified a tank, or built a seat before this. and it did it for 1900 bucks, including the donor bike.
I read everything i could, from evry site i could find, I planned for months, and thats the result.
I traded work for welding, I traded work for leather work, theres always a way around the big pricetag.
The point is, you Gain Nothing from trashing it, but you gain much from keeping it and trying.
Sorry bout the rant, the keyboard has been drinking.
