yeah, i'm kinda mixed on how it looks. maybe a hugger would do some good. At least it does't look like a moped from the back now. I think I'm just going to throw on a couple lightning bolts for the tag light.

What happens when you throw a rock into some cagers windshield?
Where I live, you get a ticket AND get to buy a new windshield.
