I love riding and I love wrenching.
Since I started frequenting the SS forum, I have noticed that I am not the only one who goes way beyond what is practical or functional when building a bike to create a thing of beauty.

Very nice, looks vicious!! Turbo? Mustang intake came from Spectre Performance, flows 1150 cfm, fresh air is not a problem.
