guess what? these are not exclusive. i know! i thought that was all i did, too. they were sent from bikerMetric friend and follower marcos of free kustom cycles in spain. no funny story, either. just the facts, ma’am.

right on, man. digging the red frame, the upholstery on the seat, and the little front fender which i suppose does just enough to keep most of the road **** off the rider’s face. it’s a shame the license plate is so enormous. a modified ural exhaust? use what you’ve got! wonder what it sounds like…

well i never. how are we supposed to know if your stuff is affordable, marcos?

as a former cruiser rider (2002 honda vtx1800c), i still love big, modified cruisers like this. also mostly black stuff and especially black and gold stuff (geaux saints!). while i’ve never liked riding rear tires over 200mm wide as they make a bike difficult to ride on city streets, we all know a motorcycle is an extension of the rider’s ***** (or ********, as the case may be), and some dudes need to be…. um…. wider.

regardless of tire width, the customization of the body on this thing is amazing and i’m sure it gets a ton of looks on the street. i bet it also smokes 110″ harleys like the 1970’s smoked dope. if the owner gets an aftermarket fuel injection doohickey like i had on my 1800, it’ll dyno at over 115 ft/lbs of torque.
