Thanks man. Yeah, I've always been a Brit bike guy I guess. My first was a brand new 69 MK1 - Rally green 5-speed and a head rest. Should have kept that one.

Hey Ryan, I was hoping you would see this. Hopefully it will be ready for Torquefest or at least Wayland!

One day and 5 years maybe. Thanks Clay. I'm heavily influenced by your builds.

I like that idea! It would free up the SBC for the C10. Hmmm...

nice metalwork and good pics to boot. By the look of the cars (truck) in the pics you are no stranger to iron. Nice bike and the finishing with the parts is super clean.

Nice work and persistance.I'm kickin' myself for giving up and selling unfinished projects.I like the way you went with the taillight (no sissy bar) and the bars.As much as I like brass,you got a nice clean look.It's fittin' your boy pretty well ... C'mon dad,do you REALLY expect us to believe you didn't have this planned ? ... lol

Seemed better to just start over since the thing is actually coming together now. I’m going to post progress pics from where I started up to where I am now. Hey, after all, it has been almost 6 years. There’s a bunch to post, so here goes nothin’.
This is what I bought. Man, what was I thinking? I got a clear title with it, which is worth a bunch in Illinois.

Great job all around. It's a learning experience for sure. Don't be embarrased, I started my Panhead project in 2005. Changed directions way too many times and let too much time go by here and there. Looking forward to finishing as I'm sure you are.

I noticed that I was givin no credit in the text for my constant ragging of you to get off you butt and work on this thing! Thats cool Lee, i'm just always the motivator, never getting anything in return! haha! looks great man, I really never thought it would look this good, or that you would get it this far, kinda sucks cause I was thinking someday I would buy this pile of parts from you!
