Yeah i like stock bikes too, but the chopper is what I really wanted to build and I’ve been doing it with what I got or can afford.

Thanks!

Because I like sidevalves and knuckles! Post 47/48 (very early pan) doesn't do anything for me that's all! but his genny shovel is really nice chopped and was in the swinger!

Looks great. I think you're onto something.

Almost a shame to paint them, isn't it, when they look so good in metal?

Question #2: What's that Triumph-shaped thing in the background?

That is a nice looking Genny Shovel you’ve got in the works there. It’ll be cool to see what rear fender you go with. Thanks for sharing this.

Thank you.

I don’t recall what it is, it’s a 1970, It’s not a bonneville

I was originally trying to use a Cooper one, didn’t like the width, started to narrow it up and it just wasn’t working out. Sooo I’m having my buddy (Eighty Four Below shop in Santa Cruz) whip up a narrowed Trailer fender.

Saw the youtube of you talking about your shovel and the knuck! Good to hear it's running well. Knucks do run really well if you can get the carb dialled. They do enjoy a linkert!

I have a 68 fairly stock with a fullly rebuilt engine and sometimes I look at her and think "that engine would look beautiful in a hardtail"
One of, if not the best, looking engine.

Yeah, they do look great In a hardtail , but remember it’s a Little more work than the rear frame. There’s a list of things you cannot run on a hardtail from the original soft tail frame.
