Ride what I built from parts the way I wanted it to go. See how difficult it was and see who I could partner with in a business.
Wanted a balanced bike with a big rear tire. Did not make sense to buy something and tear it down. So a ground up project was the plan. Being an Engineer in the motor vehicle sector (Bosch), I was also toying with the Idea of getting into custom builds as a business till bottom dropped out
Paint, and stretch on the tanks. I also fabricated interior parts from scratch that I thought functioned or looked better like closing up the back tire to engine compartment with some stainless.
When somewhere someone says, Who Built that and I say Me.
Wow, How many layers of paint are there? What is HP rating, how long does it take to clean
