Default Long time listener, first time caller

So I went and took the plunge yesterday and bought a Giant Stiletto in
black/chrome, and after riding around on it for a few hours and getting
used to that insane skate, thought to myself, what would be the most insane
mod I could do to this bike apart from green EL string along the weldpoints
on the chainguard and quadspot heads?

Looking at the Sturgis Biker Rally site the first photo on there is...
well... it can only be described as "WOW!". A giant green rat. On a
motorised chopper. I'm thinking to myself, how much weight would that add
to the bike if I did the mould in chicken wire, built with carbon fibre
then clamped it on the frame on removable hardpoints? Not a lot, I would
reckon.

My last ubermod was less of an ubermod and more like just accessorising the
bike. Raleigh Max full suspension, had EL string, cold cathode tubes,
35WRMS sound system, quad heads, and lockbox on the back. Still turned
heads when people heard me coming tho... thing popped the crank bearings
through the frame Wednesday, which is why I bought the Stiletto.

Very comfy ride.
Bitch to steer.
