Not a very good picture of the sportster but it has a 40 degree on the neck and the swing arm is 4 inches longer.

The plate is on my 2004 Harley. The eyes in the skull light up with the brakes.

and the picture to the left is the air cleaner on the same Harley

That's bad-ass low buck cool, the best kind: making way cool stuff on the cheap. But a quick suggestion: if you want to clean it up even more, counter sink the peg bolt and drill and press in a pin to stop it from rotating, so you can lose the star washer. Wait. This is you. You probably already had your own plan, didn't you? Never mind... :-)

fender strut with a snake climbing up the inside. I made the struts out of 1/8" steel. but they needed some support, so I welded in some round bar. Got to playing around with the grinder and it turned out looking like a small snake, will be pretty cool when its finished up...

Here's a few off a GSXR rigid i did last year. The tank started out as a smashed Kawasaki Mean Streak item. I cut out the bottom , cut 8" out of the center , beat the sides back out(5" on one side and 3" on the other) , welded it back together with an 04' GSXR750 filler , added a Z650 tap mount , made a new base & tunnel and got Neo Dutch to paint it. All out of 1.0 or 1.2mm steel. Fiddly to work with but a unique tank. I also made the bars as 1.25" that reduced to 7/8ths , modified the 02' Indian Rear Guard , made the frame and modified everything else .

My first attempt at rounding the edges of the recessed mounts on a tank.

A couple more shots of the ongoing project. Not the actual tank that's going on it, my tank is being molded & primed.
