I kinda like it , although the builder got his styling cues sorta mixed up by country . Burgess style mufflers , American style seat and tail light  :grin:

 TS

I like it too and don't know enough about burgess style mufflers, American style seat and tail light for it to bother me. :thumb:

I like the bike overall. The only thing that bugs me are the wrapped pipes.

Agreed. Wrapped pipes are the platform shoes of motorcycle fashion. I predict they will be just as embarrassing to look back at.

Other than the beach bars, seat, and tires - I like it.

I dunno about the price, either.

I dont like the seat, a Cycle Garden or Harper's tractor seat instead of that 1930's bicycle seat would be the best pick.

And that stock Bonneville take-off exhaust has GOT to go
