    Re: PAY IT BACK

    i am going to take new pics today of the frame it is mostly free of paint now and i started polishing the frame. i also am getting ready to make the tank insert but i have to start with a mock up before transfering it into the copper i am going to use. should be interesting never really worked with it. brass yes copper no and yea i know it is softer should be fun. i am really excited about this bike it has a look that i have never done and in my mind it is right. thanks for all the positive feedback more to come stay tuned :D

    The stance on the bike REALLY looks good!........Please, please, be careful you don't "poke" an eye out while making that springer!...............Actually, you'd look pretty cool with an eye patch (jk). :wink: ...Nah, It wouldn't be worth it!
