K5 CAFE RAT
I won't deny the pictures do the bike justice.
Truthfully, I wanted a slightly rough edge to the look when I built it.
The tank was wet sanded and polished but still has a couple of imperfections.
The aluminum is weathered but clean. It is all part of the bikes charm. ......a real attention getter.
