I find it more amusing that they have an add for rust converters on the same page. When everyone knows ADDing more rust is the way to go.

flat black rat rods are now dead on the scene. Now it is patina. In other words find that old bomb sitting in a barn. Throw some mexican blankets on the seats, get it running, drop it to the weeds, and drive it. The more beat the body and the paint, the better.

Don't even get me started on the Ed Hardy fashion thing going on right now. Pisses me off that I've wasted more the $5K on tattoos, when I could have bought a t-shirt!

That's disgusting mach, you need to go here now:OldSkool SUZUKI .info - Genetic Engineering of an Extinct Species

Register, and start looking around at all the amazing builds. If you're using firefox, open their "member's special projects" section, right click on all the "all" links, and start scanning through all the projects, it's truly amazing what some of these guys do, beauties or rats with no money, or beauties with a lot of money. There are rats with no money, but those are the guys who try to throw a complete bike together with all their spare parts.
And of course my constantly *****'d bike, for your consideration:

my bike looks like a child's beat up matchbox car compared to some of the builds over there.
