I'm not Jewish, and if you want to rock the nazi bullshit, go for it. Personally i think ts lame and does a disservice to a nice bike. Thing is if you didn't act so proud to have a "Nazi" symbol - and that's your term not mine - no one would really notice.

    I get that we like to build and ride home-done deathtraps at least in part for the attention. I guess being 36 and older than a lot of people on this forum i'd just rather get that attention from building a solid, well-thought out ride than for having to utilize fucked-up little trinkets to prove to myself that i'm a bad-ass cool guy who says Fuck the World. or the Jews in this case.

    i just dont get it.
    Sorry for jacking this thread, but Nazi stuff? The Nazi's actually took the symbols from other cultures, and Western Civilization still associates the imagery with those events. The Swastika for example, the word is a derivative from Sanskrit meaning lucky. Its a symbol that has been stygmatized and taboo, but its a symbol that is revered around the world.. for example in Hinduism and Budhism it is still a promenent figure... and the SS symbols are derived in a very similar manner.. that lettering was actually from ancient ruins, and turned to their sides. Not trying to be hostile.. just pointing out.

    I think the craftsmens ship is beautiful on the entire bike from front to back. I don't think the builder has to "look for any attention" because the work speaks for itself.

    that fender mount is awesome, as well as all the fab work on the bike, not to wild about the tanks, but hey its your bike! As far as the swastikas, when I was in Korea, you would see them on a lot of churches there

    thanks, the pipes are made out of stainless, im gona tig them all up and let them turn a nice gold color. The fender mounts are made out of a transmission ring gear out of a volkswagon that i found in the garbage at a friends shop. thought it would look cool somewhere on the bike.

    Not to hijack the thread but I ran a mountain bike air shock on my CB360 and loved it. It had preload and rebound adjustment and rode really smooth.

    Yeah its a rockshock. Or however u spell it. Its the only way to go, super plush. Its one of the higher end ones, lil over 200 I think. Go to builtwells web sight, they have a bad ass progressive link system with a fox shock that pretty sweet. 600 bones though. The good thing about air shocks like I have is if you weigh more or less you can put more or less air in it to match you weight. Plus you get preload so its not a bouncy ride.
