'Mad Max' Chopper
This model is inspired by the work of Russell Mitchell of Exile Motorcycles.  I've always like his style of design - very uncluttered
and clean.  One of the standard bikes that is offered is called the Mad Max.  This model comes pretty close to capturing the look of
that bike.  Improvements would be to make beef up the size of the air cleaner and make the exhaust pipes bigger in diameter and
route differently.
