    This is my first few months on the forum and my first build off...Im stoked to see all the cool bikes that you guys build! I have a great love for old cars but for some reason especially Buick's!!! so my inspiration will be a 51' Buick special...i wont hive away to many secrets yet ill let you guys view it as i build it! Its probably more fun that way! Good luck guys cant wait to see the bikes!

    Great frame great inspiration, shoot up a photo of the exact car for some reference if you have a modded one in mind. Good luck!

    The coloring of that car on your build would be sweet.

    That bike has the EvansAction fork and Evans Olympic/Commander rear rack. It is also stretched! Pretty cool, but I think the portholes are a little big!
