A thing of beauty from 2004.
      #656405 - 02/25/16 05:24 PM

I found this bike on Facebook. I posted it on our fb page, but it deserves a spot here also. If I had another Green America this would be a worthy starting point.

Sissy bar with no b!tch pad always looks stupid to me but the rest is nice.

I agree it needs a pad.I don't like the seat colours.Each to his own,I'm not a whitewalls fan,the basic look is ok,but I suppose the basic look is of an America with high barsLooks perhaps like a smaller headlight.
It should be blue.

It's at the very top but it blends into the background of the photo, and being so very high it looks strange, unless you mean the pillion which is not in evidence. This bike needed new cables, the speedo line is outside the keeper and the brake line looks stretched tight.

I don't care for the seat but the rest of it looks awesome!

LOL you all are a tough crowd. I agree with you all. The bike was not very well prepared for the photo. I just don't have much of an imagination when it comes to customizing and envy those with the talent.

I do like the retro look of this bike and since I have a green America it is neat to see someone attempting a customization.

I used to have a bike with a banana seat made of that material and remember how hot it was to sit on in the sun.

Well Bill, c'mon down to Wade's Bike Barn. We happen to have a GREEN '05 America named Gwendolyn who really wants to make your customization fantasies come to fruition.

But wait, there's more .......................................................................

That's great Wade, as long as,"But wait there's more" doesn't include Yak fur or thongs .I'm still having nightmares.

OK, before you go to sleep, and JUST before you go to sleep, picture me out in front of Wades Discount Bike Barn flamboyantly hawking all the latest deals, with a Viking Horn Helmet, no shirt, a medallion and the ubiquitous Yak Fur Thong, and RED cowboy boots !

Good nite ! Sleep tite !
