    Thanks Tin. I actually thought the forks was froze up when I started the build but I figured oh well they still look cool but I figured out once i took the test ride that there just real stiff. Ive always liked red and black so it only seemed right to go with that for my first build off bike and I plan on using it as one of my flagship bikes ( my wifes being the other) so I wanted it to stand out. still not sure about the headlight but its mounting bolt has become a structure point of the front fork

    I know my build would be slowing to a crawl but its coming to a stop till i find a new scrap yard to shop at, I went out to the scrapyard I usually get my stuff from and the owner told me he closed his doors and sold out to a big recycling company in the area

    Thats so true, he was one of my main places I got part bikes cheap and was only a mile outside of town, I can still get them from the company that bought him out. but will have to pay more and drive further

    We have scrap places around here, but everything gets crushed and there is no picking. Luckily the scrap guys around here bring me bikes before they take their load to the scrapper.

    Re: SOUL CATCHER

    Ok dug around all my halloween props for a small resin skull I could carve out to cover the big bolt for the headlight to no avail. Then I was standing there thinking of where it could have gotten to when I seen a box of my stuff from when we moved last year so I looked to see what I had in it. I came across this and put it on the bike

    Ive had the dragon head or should say drachen head for about 16 years now and is pretty much unreplaceable, I cant bring myself to paint it to match but I like how the tips of the ears match the width of the lower part of the bars

    With the headlight I didnt have any room for a normal head badge :) I am going to do some badges for it out of the brass pieces
