Some of the shit on it that I hate has had to go el pronto, those fucking ugly pull back bars, shitty looking bling dick mirrors and matching headlight, the equally atrocious forward controls, the dinky flame-o tail light, the shocks and the tanks, these are the easy ops . . . . like a lot of Super Duper Glides, the sporty front end that actually works so much better for heading in your chosen direction, has been replaced by the wide glide, that's gonna go to make way for Senor Super Freak Casquilho's super duper narrow trees and 2" over staunchions, likewise the bobtail guard/fender will be flicked in favour of something simple, clean and tyre hugging . . . . not sure about pipes yet either, few ideas bouncing around in the cranial cavity.
Much of the rest of the thing I don't really mind as a starting point, of course I don't mind it, I fucking well bought the thing didn't I, like I said, it appears to be a pretty legit old girl, a good solid base platform to turn into my own piece of the Hardly Rideable Dream . . . . I'm really bloody excited about it actually, it ain't going to be a fully wild, totally hand fabbed, crazy freaky jigger, just a nice, mildly custom crafted, rideable, hopefully cool, scoot, I'll keep you up to date as Project Shoveller progresses . . . . oh boy, is this great !!!!
