    I'm still looking for something I can use as a lens. I want it to be round looking like the original one.

    I pulled Mr. Higgins down out of the rafters last night. This is what I'm starting with.

    I've picked a few pieces off it over the last several years. Here's some more photos.

    I picked this tank up recently. I'm hoping to work with the original paint on the frame, fork & tank.

    So cool! That tank paint is a great match to the fork.
