    First time in the build off, newbie on the forum, building on the old continent; I turned this

    into this

    You can find transformation diary here.
    To follow the rules of the build off, other pictures of the bike will be posted in post below this one.

    Hope you like my bike; I certainly enjoyed building it and now when I understand it I enjoy every pedal turn while riding it.

    And here are other pics from different angles (and with the teddy bear; it's not Radar's, he jelaously kept his hidden so I had to find a replacement). :)

    I think Hot Lips Hoolihan should give you a big fat kiss. Well done.

    The Classic lines, the whitewalls,the Army paint and the leather accessories...

    Did you really build this or did you actually build a time machine instead? Because either one would be an awesome accomplishment!

    thanks guys, I'm glad you like it.

    Hot Lips is here, she's reading this with a smile on her face - it must be that she's happy when I'm happy! ;)

    I like military bikes, but the MASH theme is a home run! I grew up watching that show with my dad so I brings back great memories. Great job!!

    thanks; I really appreciate your support.

    just today I remembered that I could have made a MASH signpost. Dough!
    I was searching for the spot that looks closest to the MASH camp, and this place has every potential to became next camp; it has a stream, a uplifted area for helipad, enough place for the swamp, mess tent, OR and office.
    It even has it's own minefield in the back (now cleared, but a reminder of a last war 20 years ago).

    Today I got THE* offer for the bike, but I think I'll pass-I just can't part with it. If I had to, I think I would rather give it away to someone who deserves it than to sell it to anybody-no matter the price.


    *triple the bike cost made while building

    That would be a really nice bike to ride in Memorial Day parades.

    Yesterday we had a army parade here in Croatia, as we are comemorating 20 years from the war.

    I missed to show you this detail in the build off-it's a magnet sticker of a Harley Davidson WLA model, that served as a partial inspiration to this build.
