    Other: Freshly Built and almost done, but still waiting on a few parts to get back from plating. Everything on this bike has either been Chromed, powdercoated or polished. No nut bolt or washer will be left untouched by the time this bike is completely finished. The Motor was built by Arlan at LED as a duner with plenty of bottomend and mid-range, but she still pulls hard through the topend. She's pushing 62hp and about 48 torque. Keeping with the theme I finally tracked down LRD bumpers to go with the Pegs, Nerfbars and seat cover. The Red weave carbon fiber was mostly done by Jay @(Fourwerx) except the silencer tube. The Material came from Jay, but Brad Loomis @(X-stream composites) made the tube then Jason Moore @(PDX TRX) and myself got together to make the core for the silencer, then finally off to plating done by Steve Hershberger @(Bright-Werx). It has a Leager +3 steering stem on it which is pretty long and was just recently done for me by Mark Laeger. I'm ordering a Stellar +4 Chromed Arched Ladderbar swingarm and then I'm switching to 22x12x8, 9 paddle Extreme's with the OMF Beadlocks front and Rear. I also need to have some custom graphics made to complete the build and tie everything together!

      That bike is ridiculous... and I mean that in a good way. Nice work. Hit me up if you make it down to the coast. Wouldn't mind riding with a fellow enthusiast.

      Best regards
