fender is from throttleaddiction.com
the rear tire is a firestone ans

finished up the bars
they will probably get a little more forward bend to them
and they are definitely getting cut down a lot narrower

Nice Work Carmine, I'm wondering what the Owner wants as far as Foot Controls?
stretched out or Go with True North Cal look ala 1969 with knee caps up in your face?
Still loving that Single Loop Frame....

mids are fine when you drive a hardtail bike in harsh conditions
(read: speedbumps,putholes etc )

looks real nice ,not a big fan of 15" rears but.... looks great here !

I just have to take a minute and give a big thanks to the guys at Wargasser Speed Shop for doing up a set of super narrow trees and components in brushed finish for me
these are super high quality pieces here and well worth every penny
thanks guys



I had to clearance the handlebar mounting bungs that I use to clear the fork tube caps since the trees are so narrow

got a little more work done
big thanks again to Mike at 47 Industries for the custom axle with the Stainless head on it
Im not good at math and mike stepped in with his amazing algebra skills to get the axle figured out
so thanks again buddy I wouldnt have expected anything less from you

so onto the pics




and I started working on the rear fender and sissybar
I wanted to go with something a little less traditional and very very minimal so this is what I came up with
its all made out of 304 stainless and will get the brushed finish that everything else on the bike is getting

thanks man
I got the bike off the lift today to see how it looks on the ground and Im liking it
I know its a little different than most people go with for a sissy and tail light etc and thats exactly what I wanted
I dont want this bike to get lost in a crowd of other old choppers

so heres what she looks like down on the ground

Been slacking on progress on this a little bit mainly because Ive been cranking out a ton of customer work for people
I got the oil tank mounted up the other night just have to go back and shape up the lower mount plate and make it look nice





I stretched this piece of 304 stainless exhaust pipe to fit the exhaust flanges on the heads Im hoping to get started on the exhaust sometime this week
