White Lightning

Lightweight, nimble like a rabbit, and completely utilitarian, this bike built by Gard Hollinger of LA Chop Rods is less for show and all about the go. Rather than hiding things, and keeping "it" sanitary, as most builders do, Gard let the parts speak for themselves, and took the "let it all hang out there" approach. That's not to say the bike doesn't have clean lines, because it does. Check how Gard ran the rear brake and hydraulic clutch lines tight to the single loop down tube, not with zip ties, but with welded mounts and rubber grommets.
