August 2016 Bike of the Month
« on: August 18, 2016, 11:57:03 AM »
This months winner was suggested by a member out in BC. I had seen the post in the Gallery section but hadn't really looked at it. When I went back and really had a good look, I liked a lot of what I saw. The owner really hit a lot of the high points on a bike of this type, and he did it with an old Magna. Nicely done.

So, congratulations Pitstop504, your 1984 Magna is August 2016's BOTM.

Congrats Pitstop, I was never a really big fan of the Magna until I seen this bike. Well done and enjoy riding it.  :thumb

Deserved. Nice job. Honda could copy it and slap an updated 1400cc V4 in the frame and sell a bunch of them. But they won't.  :'(

With all the hack job bobbers out there its nice to see one that someone put some thought, imagination and effort into.

Well Done, not my style but I can appreciate all the love you put into this one. Welcome to the nut house.

That's one cool looking bike. I won't ask how much time you spent with her, but it has to be right up there with your day job. She's a beauty and one of a kind. Congrads!  :thumb :beer: :thumb
