Default New project progress...

Picked up this '69 XLCH a couple months ago.



And this is where its at now. Getting a front st. cycle fender hopefully this week, then I can make my seat and plumb and wire it.

Although I do think it looks cool as shit, I think it looks a lot like your Triumph as it sits. Are you going to paint this one?

I want it to look like my triumph, That's how I like em. I'm not one for a bunch of flashy bullshit, though I might paint some parts one this one.

Stock frame, weld on tail, stock front end, shaved forks and trees.

Very nice look to the bike. I really like the bars and front end.

Don't use fenders at all! Bike looks nice as is.

Unless of course you plan on riding in the rain. I just had to do that the other day with my bike and no front fender, yea that sucked.

But still- it'll look better without 'em.

Okay, as long as that's what you were going for. I think it looks tits, but I didn't know if you were going for something different that just turned out similar.

Looks sweet. I see we have the same taste in tires and wheels. My tires just arrived on Friday.
