welcome! I'd say this bike is far from "traditional".. in a good way.. the caddy emblems and tail light, tank and wheels are a little different. Im not a fan of front knobby tires on street bikes and not having a front brake, but hey, if it works for you, fuck it!

this was part of the prosses.. i still have the painted tank and the drag/cafe seat which i will use if i ever get tired of the rat look ... it gets tons of attention and here in south FL there is only a few.. i like what i did but the rat look is defenetly my favorite it was in my mind before i started... ill probably find another xj and use those parts...
