killer bike bro


GOT TO LOVE A FAMILY SIGHT THAT POST PORN LINKS UNDER YOUR NAME IF THEY DON'T LIKE THE LINK YOU HAD ON THERE  INSTEAD OF MAKING IT SAY LINK IS NOT ALLOWED AND SENDING A NICE PM WHY IT WAS COVERED UP  .. IT SAYS A LOT ABOUT THE PEOPLE THAT ARE CONTROLLING THIS PLACE .

What!  Inspired by a Canadain!!!  Who would of thought???  Nice work here Mike.  Definately one of the museum's finest builds.  All your hard work paid off.  Congrats on a killer build.  smile

Re: 1979 Kuwahara KE-1

Thank you guys. I am humbled that you think so highly of it. To be honest, I cringed the  first time the brake pads touched the rims. Now that that's over, I can tell you its light, fast, and super smooth.

Re: 1979 Kuwahara KE-1

Polanco,

Its a wee bit different now. I had to put a GT layback on it so I could ride it. Damn thing is small. I also added the matching front DC MX 1000 with a tech 3 lever. I will update the pics once the weather breaks.
