Definately not mainstream, which makes it cool. Those guys do some interesting work for sure. I really like the skull knob on the jockey shift (middle pic, green bike) Is that one of theirs as well?

Would you mind asking where they sourced the knob? Looks like glass to me but maybe just paint......I want a swirled glass knob for my rigid and have had zero luck findin one.

It's easy, you simply pull the trailer up to where you want to park and push the bike out.

Not my bag, but there's some serious craftsmanship going into those bikes. Looks like it was a fun time also.

Oh, no doubt. Building something like that takes serious talent and commitment. But I'd wanna ride it till the wheels fell off. Probably why I don't have one......

My good friend's ZX6 that does most of their welding, that just went to Deal's Gap with us April of this year(the bike was stock then!), has now turned to the bling side with his 240 tire kit and 14" swimgarm with air ride suspension! :hammer:

It may have taken technical skills to build that bike, but holy hell is that thing an abortion to my eyes. Its as though they took everything that makes a Daytona/Speed Triple great and said, "How shitty can we make the handling? Oh, I know, lets stretch it out to double the wheel base, put a stupidly large rear tire on it!"
