This bikes are not aftermarket book like many HD or jap street bikes.
So if I like the look or not, I say BRAVO to builders for their labour.

sorry dude,
didn't meant to offend or hurt your feelings, I was just trying to be sympathetic... (perhaps you didn't get).

I do like it and appreciate the labor behind it, and if I didn't I wouldn't have posted it...

By the way, there are many bikes in Germany that are not TUV compliant between tests... (but I won't enter that debate, trust me, I live here)

I was just trying to be funny and continue with the thread...

It is amazing how some people jump into conclusions...
