    Now that is really unusual

    Has it been painted yet?

    painted it last night, Turned out a hell of a lot better than i expected for rattle can and masking tape. Just found some big ape bars to make it look cooler, havnt put em on yet. It needs a new saddle too, probably going to find a nice comfortable cruiser saddle. Anyhow I took pictures this morning with my phone, tonight ill get some action shots when i take it out on the town.

    Wow, I really love that bike, very nice paint job.
    I would suggest a half rear fender that has flames painted on it so it looks like it's coming out of the zebra's ass.
