The Green Mamba


A friend of mine, Jeff Sweigart, dubbed my bike "The Green Mamba" and it sort of stuck.  OK, OK,.. I know it's not the fastest bike around, but it looks like it could be!  It took about 7 months to customize over a long, cold Pennsylvania winter.  Here's what I've done:
-    Custom paint by Benny Bryant, Fantasies On Wheels.  Silver base with Silver/Black Marblized ghost flames and drop shadows.  Top coated with Kandy Organic Green with Dupont Chromallusion highlights and starbursts.
-    Seeger Cycle Accessories AME +14 degree over stock raked front end with +10" over stock fork tubes.  The front is raked about 50 degrees total and stretched about +20"
-    Outside slash cut semi-gutted stock pipes.  A Benny Bryant designed modification.
-    RAK - Ram Air Kit intake & re-jet.  A Benny Bryant designed modification.
-    Thunder Manufacturing Hyper Charger
-    Pacific Cost Star "Potato Chip"cruiser seat
