Thats a cool looking chopper I dig the paint job on the tank. But I agree with Kel. that can be a bigger money pit that our beloved Duc's. I guess it depends on what your plans are. Also keep a mental note Rigged frames are brutal to the body
Yeah, I was thinking maybe a springer/shock-type seat. It's just that so many of these things are so overdone, and this one has that old school/bobber/stripped down look. I'd have to add a front brake, and I am about 2-4 weeks away from a job at a H-D dealership w/ some pretty good fabricators, so...
Been there done that and a hardtaill is a mother for anything other than tittybar to tittybar.
Unless you just love working on your bikes I would get a new blockhead engine. You can get a decent kit for 21k or scround and buy parts off of the ironcross.net sale forum. Personally when/if I ever decide I "need" another HD I will just build one from scratch it is easy and you dont get ass raped like the morons buying "custom" bikes ..
All that said I would also personally buy a pan or shovel motor, Denvers frame and springer front end, Kennedys 120 spoke wheels.
