Good job. I think it's way cooler to make or modify your own stuff rather than buying off-the-shelf parts. The fact that it's also cheaper is just a bonus.

Forgive my ignorance. Aside from aesthetics, what function do the holes serve?
theyre speed holes. helps the air move away from the chain to lessen the wind drag which makes the bike lighter and go faster. also it helps reduce the green house effect and imporves the world and teaches children how to read. oh yea it also looks cooler than the silly black one
