    It is DONE. Didn't think it was going to happen but it finally did. Nothing wanted to come easy with this bike, some ideas worked some didn't. How it came to me, rough but didn't realize how rough. I wanted it to have the feel of a chopped fender deuce coupe.

    The biggest headache of this build

    The bare metal idea went out the window

    In the end, it turned out better than I originally planned.

    Thanks, the red brick wall is one of my favorite places to take pics of my bikes, the white walls are just down the street from the first, have a few other places I want to go by tomorrow if I get the chance.
