Here's a guy who does a fairly decent job on the bike, and then ruins it by welding a wrench on to the shifter spline thus preventing ever being able to remove that cover behind it for service.
"Ride Safe, Chop Safer" Motorcycles are not unsafe. However; they are extremely unforgiving of inattention, incompetence, ignorance, and stupidity.
Dismantling, sawzalling, and rattle canning does not make a bobber.
Those are STEPS toward customizing, not customizing unto itself.
