Alot of work really went into that. They did an imaculate job with all the mods on it. I do have to say though, that I am not a fan of the tail section shoting to the stars like that. I would love to see down more a bit closer to normal. I sopoze it wouldn't be the bike it is then though. Oh well, nice job.

very nice work!  the checker scheme seems a bit out of place, but it probably looks better in person.  I like it because it's original.  good job.  now just bling bling the rims!  :thumb:

Is there a pick of a rider on that bike? (just wondering how the bike looks with a rider)

I prefer the look of the stocker.  But your work is immaculate.

It is not good enough to say that we are trying our best. We must succeed in doing what is necessary.

I really like Jim's GS.  Some may not get it or like it.  But that's hot.

I am encouraged to see people using the GS as a platform to carry out some outrageous ideas.   I think it is a good canvas for this type of expression.  And Jim is a master at his craft.  

Keep up the good work Jim, and start making some custom parts for us, too!
