That is a really cool looking bike. Love the colour and like the smattering of retro amongst the new stuff.

that looks nice dude. are the saddle rails painted too or is it a reflection? if it is paint i bow down to your attention to detail!

do we build our other halves awesome bikes because we love them and we want them to ride in style or is it so we make them happy and they dont mind us spending money on our own bikes??
