Default My new grille

Worked with Dave Budinsky to get the design exactly how I wanted.

That grill looks amazing... Can you get an orange LED behind the "Bad Ace Billet"? If you lit those up it would pull the eye to the grill and look very cool to boot..

Lol, that has been the plan all along. Ran out of time before the SEVR. But the position of the letters, the structure and even color behind the letters are all done in prep for lighting.

This was mid fab when Dave tried the concept out with lighting he had laying around.

That is funny..., It would be almost scary if you were planning the final color to be orange...

Lol. I am.

Here's something funny. I just got new tires before the rally. Maybe two miles on them tops from riding around the SEVR hotel and vendor areas. (Trailered a pair of bikes there). Spent a while trying to find the 21" tire I wanted.




While there I won these rake trees that Eric (VicBaggers) donated to the raffle. So now I'm shopping for a 23" wheel and new tire.

Congrats ...besides all the shopping you'll now have to do, some powder-coating will be in order too
