Default Hi! I'm newbie

My name is Mario, I'm from Fort Worth, TX. I was into traditional customs & hot rods, still am but can't afford to build a car... so decided to try and build a cone shovel. Started with a rigid frame and didn't get very far before I sold everything and one day ended up with a 71' Ironhead. It has old paint, crusty chrome and a cracked molded neck. I've always been into old choppers, but never owned a bike until a few months ago. Don't know a who lot about old bikes, should be a great learning experience. Plan on building a period correct early 70s chopper. Wish me luck!

Bro that’s awesome can’t wait to see your build. Those early Ironheads sound so mean.
