If You Ever Get The Chance To Own One...do It — This thing was a blast! I loved everry minute of owning this thing. It was fast, it was rough, it was custome, and it was dirty. It had a very unique frame. I just with I could have made the thing street legal.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: Super fun

Cons: hard to make street legal
