    Very cool! As cool as the springer is, those truss rods are almost cooler!
    What does NDN stand for? Or is that a secret that will be kept to the end? :mrgreen:

    NDN when said fast enough sounds like Indian. Thus my inspiration w/ a more rat smack to it.

    Who can get any work done today...that is your real job. Tele-commuting is dangerous during RRBO!

    tear down moving along and the old boy is cooperating...except for the cranks!

    I am a programmer so had a late work night last night/this morning so had some time to start making my grips. As I move along I will post more images as I move through the leather process.

    ..... man can you make me a carved leather bald eagle american flag vest with an apache Indian on the front? Nah it's cool I' all let you do what you do and bother Ted Nugent about it. :D I love the attention to the grips for sure. Gonna carve me up some myself.
