They're reacting and that's wonderful. It's better than them sitting there doing nothing. I say make them react - do whatever's in your power to move the audience, and if that's where it is, and there where it is with America, sex and violence, then I say project it.

Ken, I know original pics might be scarse..any chance for a side by side comparison?
I know both yours and Rons original are almost identicle..just curious..

Beleive me, I can image. I've done things of this nature for years so I REALLY APPRECIATE ALL that you've done here with your RW SPORT build. Most people can't fathom what it really takes to get details like this so accurate.
Hats off to you Ken, really.

Nice job.....choice build!

For those who don't know or remember...
Choice – A slang word used to describe something or someone that is awesome, amazing, cool, etc. I.e. “My new car is totally choice, man!”

Will you make the JIMMY'Z sticker..kinda removable so you can have both versions of the bike?
You did sooooo much work, not to see everything underneith would be a shame.
