    Thanks! Ya well spending like 6 hours a day on it for the last week put it together against the deadline. And im sure like most bikes here it will look a lil different a couple months from now! Thats half the fun! The only thing stock electra is the frame, part of the springer ( I modified it) and wheels and tires. I could of went big and got the tires I wanted but these just looked right and fit the style better than anything I saw. I love mixing old with new and fuzing the eras togther. Rides likes a dream!

    I like it a lot. Great bike, well done. The old Ford Custom emblems add a lot. You have a great bike and I like your other toys too.

    I find stock Electras kinda boring and don't really give them a second glance, but this one caught my attention, nice modifications! I see I wasn't the only one who put car nameplates on their bike ;)

    The wood panels are a great touch. You did a wonderful job at taking something stock and turning into something special.
