    GuitarlCarl, as always thinking outside of the box! This is a great idea.
    Since I will be installing new fork I plan on using the old air suspension fork as a sissy bar and going with either a naner or a seatbench. I will be grateful for any idea on how to make the seat hinged at the front (I think I almost picture it though, thanks to You).

    Still a little off topic, my banana seat bolts are seized to heck and back, after some choice words, I decided to dig out some parts to sell, (a 24" trike mag kit), then this happened:[​IMG]

    I've just read that more than one entry is allowed, is that one per class, I wonder...

    I believe it has been one entry per class in the past Graham. Might find your answer in the MBBO Discussion thread.

    From the link to the 2017 rules:

    Rule 4- Multiple entries from one builder are allowed, but they must have their own build threads and be entered for voting separately with a single bike voting picture.

    I may have to build another, this one's almost finished! It's easier to sell bikes than all their parts, and it's a long way 'til Feb'!

    As many entries as you think you can finish! They must have their own separate threads and photos for voting at the end.

    I still need to mess with the sissy, although sadly I've noticed this bike is way down the "just jump on for a quick ride" list, which means it may well be parted out before this contest ends, due to spacial concerns..

    Well, I've decided to close this build. The bike's just not that comfortable. Electras are a decent size, so I end up sitting on a postage stamp, not really fun to ride.
    Good news, and as not to monopolize the competition, I'll be slingin' together a class 1 build instead!
    Wish me luck!

    One does not just simply "sling" together a muscle bike for class 1.
    A showroom paint job and professional chrome is the recognized procedure, along with rare and vintage muscle bike accessories... lol.

    There's a reason I always build in class 2...
    and it's not because I can't find a "real" muscle bike.
    (plus don't pay Merle no mind. He's a figment of somebody's imagination. Alway's goofin' off.)

    Carl.
