Looks like your doin a great job so far. I'm likin' the twisted Z's and the king and queen seat/sissy bar. I'd say your on track to building a fine little mo-chine there. What do you plan on runnin' for a motor?

I just need to come up with the cash and get it built. Nothing fancy...balance flywheels, some PB+ cams, a little head work, 23t sprocket and call it a day.
Guess I should pay attention as the title of the thread does read ".......hardtail a sporty". I own a 69 Ironhead myself.
