    I saw your XS (or TX), and that is my next project, no doubt.

    Made em with the same 1" tubing i used for the frame. As a matter of fact, those bars are the first thing I ever welded.

    Credit where credit is due, I was definitely inspired by these "Skinny Minny" bars I saw on cheapskate cycle blog.

    I love the 'fuck you'-ness of this bike. It's like a big middle finger with two wheels. I don't know what it is, it reminds me of sloppy versus clean skateboarding ... some people just have their own way of doing things instead of perfectly mimicking others. sure your doing the same tricks, but your seeing things and interpreting how you want to get there in your brain. Sometimes that can be bad, but you nailed it for sure.

    much love my friend, keep up the good work.

    Well the unicorn is going bye-bye soon. Don't get me wrong, I LOVED that unicorn, and loved the fact that so many people hated it... but unfortunately the paint and colors are not holding up well to the elements/gas like i'd hoped... not to mention the rest of the tank gets surface rust every week or so.

    So today I pulled the tank, welded up a new better looking frisco mount up front and closed in the unused portion of the front of the tunnel.. like this:

    Then I'll be doing the tank and rear fender with rattle cans in some sort of metalflake/candy design.

    Tomorrow I'm going to try my hand at moving the petcock bung to the rear frisco position (may be biting off a little more than I can chew as my crappy little welder is like a retarded oaf that loves to eat through thin metal...)
    Any of you guys got tips for me as far as not destroying my bung and/or tank with this wire-feed 90amp FCAW? I know turn the amperage all the way down and go slow with short bursts... I heard somewhere that petcock bung can be tacked then silver-soldered in with good results

    Hey man,
    Just curious about your bratty tail. I am doing teh same thing on my XS and have a lame shop too.... well not super lame but no pipe bender. Just wondering how you went about bending the tubing without a bender? or do you have access to one?

    Still loving the bike and the fact that you jsut went for it.... hack it all up and hope for the best!

    AWESOME!!!! That's exactly what I am planning to go do. HA HA!
    Did you fill your pipes with sand and heat them or just straight up bend them?
    AND did you do each side individually or were you able to bend them both at the same time some way so they were exactly the same?

    nah no sand or anything, the bends weren't extreme enough to make any sort of noticeable kink in the tube or anything, especially since it was 1/8 wall DOM.. pretty thick stuff. As far as the bends, it was just a whole bunch of eyeballing to get them close enough for comfort.

    Right arm, I'll get some pics of mine up after I get it done.
