Re: let's talk seats for bit

Re: '71 H-D scrap pile chop build

Re: '71 H-D scrap pile chop build

Natty Ice Light, better than pbr. Ha ha

How will you attach, fasten the backside of that sporty tank? I like its stance on the frame. It's just hard to see if it straddles the frame or if you will...

Re: warmed up leftovers

Nice lines, I love that skinny chop look. Nothing frivolous to get in your way.
What is your plan for the paint?

Re: 33and 36 crankcase numbers

Re: Panel Beaterís Pan
