    Overall i think it runs great! But it might be a wheel bearing or something that needs replacement. Something feels a little… not right can’t really point it out for sure tho

      Your vicla/cholo build came out looking “chingon” badass! You definitely put your abilities, creativeness, and inspiration into her, congrats! I have also been following Bnag0’s rebuild…..between your 2 builds and the expert advice and research I have done from this here clinic I have decided to redo my own vicla/cholo RS with Harley split tanks and only primer for paint until I can develop painting skills like yours…. My project is stalled due to new baby and pissy toddler, diaper changing, etc….so daily I try to wrench on her at least 1 hr on my rebuild….. and I am stuck on rebuilding my carb for the 7th or 8th time….anyhow, eventually I will prevail even I I have to take the carb off my other RS in order to keep moving forward. Again, awesome build!

      Wow!
      Thank you solo! It makes me really happy that you like my work that much.
      As i said before, it´s my first bike ever.. So getting feedback like this makes me eager to get another project Since i had a deadline on this one, i think i could have done it better if i did´nt had to hurry up like that.

      Anyways, it really gladdens me to know i´ve inspired someone else!
      So again, thanks alot man!

    Finally got them turn signals there.. was not really just to bolt them on either lol.
    Dark smoked lenses and re-wired them so they work as orange positionlights as well. I know you american guys have like that, probably original.. But in Sweden we’re nåt allowed to have orange lights forward

    Well, im happy with it, thinks it turned out real nice

    Great write up and build. I like it. I have always like ape hangers, white walls and fishtails look on these bikes. Real classy and I really like the paint job too. Does your rear fender hit the road on larger bumps? Here in NB Canada would surely be wrecked.
