So this was a fishing expedition? You should use a bike that is less kickass. For $250 I'd nab that turd as a parts bike.

Well, stupid, IMHO, yes - As for a build, just fucking do it and STFU about it

I agree with the Fighter Build though - Or even a Vintage Cafe

"Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming WOW, what a RIDE !!"
