    Looks great. Ive been thinking lately of how I could make one and incorpaerate the Chevy logo into it. Might have to make a few drawings, and make it my project for my welding class.

    A "square" and flat surface would have made a cleaner finished product. It's out of square and looks redneck. Please don't take it personal as I'm sure you can do a better job. Couldn't wait to get paint on too I see. :)

    I thought it was the rack to last night but we checked and rechecked it and it was the bed of the truck that is out of level not the rack. I was wondering how long it would take someone to notice that. :D

    Im thinking of either making a larger chevy logo with the vertical bars going through the sides of the logo, if that makes any sense. Or making one of the cage like ones with the metal screen, and have a large logo in the middle.

    There's nothing worse then making it perfect just to have something else make it "look" wrong. LOL I love making stuff out of metal. :) Something I built over the winter.

    You can pedal around with the clutch in or pop the clutch and cruise all day on less then a gallon of mix. Yes it's a 2 stroke 48cc single speed clutch driven engine. It's street legal in Md. and I've been pulled over by the cops numerous times. The last time I got pulled over, I asked the cop if there was a problem, he said no, I heard about this thing and wanted to see it for myself. He said it was pretty cool and I was free to go. LOL
