    Hey Coach, your link is good, but the pics over there are attachments...I can't see them when you link them here.

    Cool project, but a little too chopper for me. I'd do a leading link front end on it.

    was afraid ya'll might not be able to see the pics. Wonder if you go to suckindiesel.com/thingy where they are hosted first then refresh here if they will then show?

    Otherwise; Sorry. If this site had ability to host pictures like every other site out there it would not be an issue.

    like it.... but the warning/annunciator lights have got to go. mebby replace them with colored glass.... beveled glass or jewel. don't mean to be critical but the plastic ones don't fit the look.

    Actually they fit sorta perfect but NOT for so much a steam punk reason.... they come from the Mercedes car the engine came out of. They welded vertical dash that holds them gives it a steam punk appearance IMHO.......... Though I've got a mental pic of how it looked in the car and know that is way steam punk compared to OEM dash.

    Granted Whiskers is not building this bike to be "Steam Punk" on purpose......... just building it the way his mind is drifting. Im the one that labeled it Steam Punk not him
