    It would be nice, though, to know who made this thing. Was it a cycle modder shop, a country bumpkin in a barn somewhere or some celebrity goose with too much money at hand.....

    I like the direction they're going, but I hate the execution, swing and a miss. The wheels look tiny, the rear fender is way too high, and the front end just looks skimpy. It's like it can't decide if it's a cruiser, dirt bike, or sport. I'm looking forward to Conquest Customs take.

    Best part of that is the Brembo brakes.

    Would like to see a pic with a rider on it.
    Exhaust looks like a scorcher for leg & foot.
    Mid pegs so knees are against air intake.
    Artistically there are too many lines going in too many directions like most HD's it's asymetrical.
    Tank looks like an after thought & the handle bar risers are too noticeable.

    You missed the point. H_C too but at least he provided the link.

    The goal was to help the OP realize starting a thread is more than just throwing a picture and a couple of words up when a product is involved. Links lives matter. ;)

    PS: Google is garbage. Never use Google directly unless you like being tracked every time you use it. Startpage.com is far better as is duckduckgo.com.

    If you can’t look and see that the bike was built by “Fab 28” and do just a tiny bit of research on your own then that’s ridiculously lazy. You spent (wasted to borrow someone else’s term) more time complaining and whining about who built it and asking for a link than it would have taken to just search for it yourself.
