I really like that!..love the clean lines and hub brakes,one of the few bikes I have seen lately that I really would like to own. Like you I was a big "king Kenny" fan in my youth,the golden age of totally nuts two strokes..perhaps you could make me a steve baker replica and send it to me. :D
Truly excellent and inspired work.
