......featuring oversize steel for extra weight. :-)


You certainly know how to enter a BOTM.... And for that line alone you are going to get my vote regardless of whatever else turns up :lol:

How many times over the years (and even now) have people been duped by the 'oversize tubes' adspeak? Crazy eh?

Fantastic build too. Just proves that it doesn't have to be a bling dripping megabucks machine to look just right 8)
