Ok finished painting today but he pics are sh*t cos 1 our Digital Camera died this morning...2 it rained most of the day here today in Wagga so it's like way cloudy.Any way first off It is NOT painted like a Destroyer!So don't say it is,but it is a combination of EGO pearl metallic,4-11 Black with Blood Orange stripes.It was going to have the same on the tank inlay but my sticker stencil guy "got swamped" so it's only on the rear guard and in reverse colours just because.So the bars,forks,trees cranks and pedals are all 4-11 Black.The frame is EGO and the rear guard striped as above.

I hope to get the seat done tomorrow or Saturday and be riding it on the weekend.Should look killer.

Heres some pics of the bars, cranks and rear guard...

i would give my left testicle just to touch the frame. that is a bloody work of art, and it seems a shame that people are going to be rubbing their hands, feet and arses all over it!!

absolutely amazing.

Ha-ha-ha...:D Looks Like I'll be doing the seat my self as the sister in laws sewing machine bit the...well what ever sewing machines do when they die???Anyway I'll smash it up tomoz then bolt the seat and back wheel and chain on and I'm f*ckin rollin!

The rear guard looks sh*t hot painted reverse,really pops in the sunlight.Quentin had his eye on it today in between fixing my dodgy wiring on the ute.

Hard to explain Gaz but just don't expect to be riding a MTB or BMX and you will be fine.At a normal speed they handle as good as any other bike due to the extra weight and longer wheelbase.Just get use to sitting down and pedaling,they are cruisers after all.They are best at fast down hill tarmac roads thanks to the low chassis and long rake they hammer.Bad points there painted not powder coated so if they get scratched I f*ckin go off at who did it,and you can't wheel stand em.Your feet push the front end down when you pedal you see!You could always put Pegs on the rear axle and punch it down hill but this one is about 2700mm long so it would be a BIG wheelie !!!:aaaahh:

Just don't expect to master em first ride but after 2 or 3 goe's a MTB feels odd.Also they much more comfortable than a MTB cos your not hunched over all the time your rideing it.

So when are we gunna make a KLR Sled Gaz???:D

many have ridden mine and all have enjoyed it:hy:
