Yeah, the rear tire is too big but I still just love it. It's very original, combining 1950's hot rod style with modern high performance machinery. I'm sure it's left people from both sides of the spectrum, the people that are really into the 50's hot rod scene and the sport bike types saying the exact same thing, "You can't do that to a sport bike." To which I'm sure the reply would be, "Oh, yeah? We just did." Very cool in my opinion.

I will definately give him credit for creative thinking. And it does look like nice work. Just is a little too odd looking for my taste.

That jockey shift is just wrong.
Foot shift/hand clutch came about as an improvement.
Why make your bike harder to ride?
Other than that, the bike's not bad.

I wonder that same thing every time I see a jockey shift replacing a foot shifter...
