See you in the parking lot,

Thank you for the story.
I knew about the prototype Vindian. I was walking past and looking the bikes over, I glanced at the Cheif thinking that it was a nice looking bike and turned to keep walking then thought WTF did I just see
Dennis has some skills , he did a beautiful job building it, looked like it belonged there. I bet it is a fun bike to ride
