"This bike was a couple years in the making off and on. Started as an abandoned bike, was taken to the garage and we immediately started pulling all the useless crap off it. The plan was to create a bike that was “Natural” - brushed metal, gum rubber and leather looking vinyl was used. Originally the back was to be black starting at the downtube on, but James did such an amazing job on the cowel it would be crazy to cover it up. There are still some fabrication needs,some Tarozzi rearsets to mount up and then it will be stripped all the way down and all powder coated.
