“Quicksilver” Super XR Sportster

This sporty blows my mind. Absolutely stunning. I want that tail section - anyone want to build me one? Built by the Japanese shop (duh) Sundance Enterprises, photo from Hardcore Chopper.

This is my church

There are people are people on this earth who are incredibly passionate about their religion. They eat, breath and sleep it. They collect artifacts that are related to it.
