unless you want a core-sample of flesh, plug those bars...


yikes! Keep the look with the straight bars, but definitely plug those ends.

Not really into the straight

Not really into the straight bars, but your pictures are amazing.

what kind of camera do you have?

Nikon D700, those were shot

Yeah theyre either winners or loser (the bars) I like the angularity and architecture look with them. I might put on drops to see how they look and if i like them switch.

Nikon D700, those were shot with the 35mm f/2D came out alright.

Thanks, it came out great. Excited for each ride.


I caught myself looking back a few times on your bike recently. The reason is because I really like the finish on your frame, the rough metal look.

Is it just sanded down and finished with a clearcoat?

Yeah, it was an unfinished frame from alien that I stripped the phosphorus coat from. I used a combination of orbital sanding with different grits and finished with steel wool. I didn't clear coat the frame as I wanted to keep the dull look, so I wax it, and keep it indoors when Im not riding, for a little bit of protection.

beautiful ride.

beautiful ride.


It's a work of art. nice ride.
