    Dang, I'm impressed! Lose a cable on the road and you've got a universal spare that you can build on the spot? I'd be trying to figure out how I could jam gears to get myself home, or just calling AAA to get me to the nearest shop. Nice job.

    Bike's definitely got a unique look, like a throwback to earlier days. I'd like to see it in person, but Sweden's a tad far to go just for an up-close-and-personal! Enjoy your ride!!

    Great weekend with alot of ridin’, a little windy (tired arms lol) but overall great weather
    Anyone else that think the streetglide looks kinda.. small?

    on my way back home the clutch cable broke.. just my luck.. but of course (since i now have bags) i allways carry some universal cable with me, so made a new one at the side of the road

    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!

    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!

    Thanks man! It’s really fun that people appriciate my build
    Yeah i love the style to.. 100% the most badass look for a bike

    Speedbumps is fine actually, but when i need to cross a sidewalk curb… Aauotch! It hurts my heart… and fender
