Hi - this is Marcus Ranum, here...

Thanks for calling this afternoon. I really enjoyed a chance
to talk with someone passionate about what they do. :) It's a good

There are a bunch of images attached to this file. I've
photoshopped some comments into them, where appropriate.

outline.jpg: this is what I meant on the phone about the
way I think parts of a chopper should line

longbike.jpg: this is what I have in mind. long and low.
short handlebars. aggressive looking. the
only thing(s) I don't like about this bike
are the exhaust pipes and the saddle...

longbike2.jpg: another norwegian style long bike. I like
this one too except the exhaust doesn't
line up with the forks right. I think a bit
of tank stretch would have helped it too.
I do like the way the controls (is that the
oil pressure gauge or the speedo?) are
nestled down by the side of the bottom
of the gas tank. but I don't like the
amount of seat/tank and tank/fork clear
air space. I think the long/low/mean look
works best if the bike looks "dense"
rather than "airy"

licensmount.jpg: I dont like the milled billety look of this
license mount. but I like the way that the
license is mounted over on the side.

greybeauty1-4.jpg: I like the color scheme on this bike but
I'm afraid it's a bit too understated for
a bad-ass chopper. the brushed stainless
and aluminum look is awesome, though. I
wonder how it would look with a slightly
deeper black than that charcoal grey, or
a deep royal blue.
