Your perfect bike?
Yeah! I got all excited years ago before owning a bike watching Orange County Choppers. I didn't give a flip about all the drama but loved the idea that just maybe I could one day have the $$ and time to simply order all new pre-fabbed parts so I could build my own bike the way I wanted it... or as close as I could get with not being mechanically inclined. Hopefully, one day!
There ain't a perfect bike but one you could put all your ideas and thoughts into could possibly be pretty close. huh?
