Default warmed up leftovers

Been a long time since I’ve been on here ! Spent the last 7 or 8 years concentrating on prewar hot rods and racing them at TROG ! Recently I got sick of tripping on piles of motorcycle parts that are just deteriorating laying around in storage or cluttering up my shop so I decided to build a bike out of mostly crap I’ve accumulated over the years ! Some stuff I’ve had to buy new because the 8 oil tanks I had here didn’t really fit the vibe of the bike or the dozen fenders weren’t quite right but most of this stuff is parts I’ve had over 10 years and some for over 15 years ! I’m about 8 weeks into a couple hours here and there during the week after work and a couple hours a day on the weekends tinkering on this and other stuff and this is what I’ve come up with so far ! I’m going to attempt to post pics but it’s been years since I’ve been here so bear with me ! I know no build thread is worth a shit without pics !

Probably have enough parts to do two more rollers but lacking pre 70 motors and none of my frames are new enough for titles

That's a really good-looking motorbike. I've never cared much for that handlebar style, but yours (homemades, I presume) look excellently goofy. Thanks for showin' us.

Picked them up in a trade 5 or 6 years ago and had them hanging around ! They are someone’s homemade SS bars I just made the stainless plate they are welded to ! Thanks for the compliment !

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

As far as paint it will be black frame,fender,springer,! I’ve got three tanks so I’m doing 3 different paint jobs ! The one seen here was a few hundred on Instagram in gloss black with gold flake , one will be all gloss black with 61-62 tank emblems ( motor is a 62 pan with shovel top end ) and another tank will be done by my buddy NEWT ! He’ll use a black base and do something crazy wild like all the cool kids are doing now ! And thanks guys for digging it I’m happy with the way it’s turning out ! Next one is a 67 Denver’s choppers frame and either a super skinny 41mm shaved glide or a super skinny springer with full moulded tank,fender,oil tank etc etc and probably crazy paint ! Just need to score a genny motor anyone got a knuck laying around they’ll sell me cheap ! LOL ha ha ha

Good looking bike, the handle bar looks a little weird to me at first but it looks great overall. I believe my uncle built a couple of bikes from scraps back in the days, I'll come over to his garage to help him install skid plates and jeep soft tops on his Wrangler project. I'll see if he have some pictures of his old bike projects. He will surely like your bike build.

That's an unusual bar but the hand grip position looks comfortable like ape hangers.

I like both bars and bike.

I like the bike just the way it is, handlebars tank, paint and the rest. I would ride just the way it is. Wish I could build a bike like that with parts I just had laying around!
