Ok so here is a mock up of what I have in mind. got tires picked out and a paint scheme also and am going to try my hand at a springer front end. the frame is a 1950 Snyder with a wards head badge

this is the aftermath of the 53 wasp build. gotta love my wife! she is allowing me to use the bathroom again for the build off!
wood for the tank

not sure what to due with this unique safety feature








was not able to fit 3.0 nobbies in it si will be getting 2.5 have to go to work but will get it taken apart when I get back and do a parts pile the wood is called lacewood and should make a cool tank!

Looks good, and man your wife's a keeper. If I did that to the bathroom I'd be sleeping outside with the bikes in the shed.

I do not have enough lace wood to do a total revamp on the trailer but should be able to a nice tie together with the bike by doing the pickets on the side rail. time will tell!

:D The question is- how many builds before the remodel can begin? We could just go ahead and gut it and say we started the remodel so it can be used as a more efficient paint booth? :wink:

Sorry, I can't help it...But when you build a bike, you gotta be the KING..You got your own throne to prove it!

How can I not watch a bike that ends up in the bathroom! 8)

I like how your build is named after the lesser known brother of William the Conqueror.
