not exactly the look I would have gone for but nice work all the same.

^^^exactly my sentiments - though it would be tempting to go modern with the suspension, and he did do a nice job, it just seems so out of place and to an extent, somewhat blasphemous

Well even though it's well built, the look doesn't really fit. The bike's stance looks a bit awkward and sorta goofy.
But that's just my personal opinion and you know what they say about opinions LOL

Along with all the above, the price may not exceed what he spent doing it, but I don't see any where near that much value in it.

Yes - and though we all have one, even they are different... :lol: I agree about the stance, it does look awkward and weird

Yup, much like many of us do with our bikes, it will never bring back the cash dumped down that "black" hole

Hopefully the CB750 visible in the guy's garage won't fall victim.

I admire all the work and dedication it took to make it what it is, but alas, just not my style. I liked the look of it right after he drug it out of the barn (minus the snake skin of course). Like the everyone else so far, $7500 is a steep hill to climb on the price. I wonder if the owner is still active on this forum?

I'm no purist and it's his bike so he gets to do what he wants. That being said I just think he missed the mark, it just doesn't blend well. IMO twin shocks and keeping spoked wheels(or costars) would look dramatically better.

he "got some flack from the VJMC about not doing a restore"... yeah, I'll bet. Interesting trophies though, the first one is kinda like the build - mismatched parts :D
