I hope his rides are safe.  They look very simple and pretty.

I had to look up Brat Style.  OK, it was what I figured.

Gorgeous Guzzi...!

Did you see how much work and CUTTING went into that rear shock / swingarm set up..?   :o

Another old frame butchered......for a sheep in a wulf's fur with unsafe looking rear suspension  ;-T

I think they have the rear jacked up way too much for the universal joint. It will be lucky to last 500 miles.

Speaking just to the Guzzi... Pretty bike but for me I'd like to see a more complete continuation of the rear sub frame along the bottom of the tail piece contour. The current look is a bit too much of the cut-it-off-street-fighter look for me.

Also, more responsible tail lighting. I'm of a stage in life where fashion no longer trumps common sense.

Too, demonstrate a truly complete concept by displaying one's notion for hanging a license plate other than a couple zip ties under the seat or sideways over the swing arm. license plate mounting finality has long been my litmus test for a "designer" having a fully formed concept.

Still, better work than I've done lately. Tank work, exhaust and overall proportions are excellent though the rear suspension geometry - sweet looking as it is - gives me pause.

Todd.

My critique-I think the monoshock brace should have been better triangulated.  Braced as it is the swingarm can still flex a bit.  I like the lines- can't judge the swingarm angle well from the pictures.  Welding looks nice.

I think you have a good point.  I really like the Ed Millich swingarms, they look indestructible

Frame tubes are so retro!
