I didn't accuse you of not having skill, I just accused you of being retarded.

However, nice to know you fabricate stuff too.

Now that being said, you just witnessed a guy who fabricates stuff so well that you thought it was production. I retract my previous statement, because in a round about way, you just paid the guy a compliment....even if you didn't mean it.

You have not seen a soda machine in a long time if you think you can get one for $.50

You're both missing the real point...

Something about that bike looked familiar. I finally realized that I recognized the frame as being from Redneck Engineering in SC. Then I went back and looked, and that sure as hell looks like Jack, one of the frame builders down there. If it is him, then it would be a sure bet that he built that from the ground up, as he has many Redneck Engineering motorcycles. Hell, he's probably built more motorcycles that most of you have ever ridden.

Even if you aren't a good fabricator, you owe it to yourself to pick up a trashed bike off Craigslist and turn it into something roadworthy at least once in your life. It'll give you a whole different perspective on what it takes to build a chop. It is one thing to ride a motorcycle, but it is a whole different feeling to ride a motorcycle you built yourself. You'll never know that feeling until you do it.

The tread on the guys boots matches the color if the frame...that's what I call good design work.

Carry on...

I see nothing fabricated, most likely built from a J&P Cycle catalog.
