This thing looks AMAZING Ryan big_smile .  It actually looks nicer than Gary's old race bike (which I got to see a few months ago - see the link below) wink .  I can't wait to see some more pictures...

Now that would be saweet, but I have a feeling that the build would be even harder to complete, and cost more than the Ellis build, probably a no go... lol

Re: 1998 GT Speed Series Team XXL

Gorgeous build!! I’m currently trying to score another Speed Series Team XL to do a tribute build just like yours. I’ll use GT Muscle Forks or GT Stiletto Forks. Gotta have a little personal touch to her. Peace

Best regards
