Default convince me....

ok...just got a great start on my new project....have 2 motors..both ironheads...one is a 72 the other a 73...also have basically a roller that is not rolling at the moment a 73 ironhead.......

I luv some of the swing arm chops that i have been seeing lately....my problem is this...most of these are shovel or pan framed bikes.......is my ironhead too short?? does anyone have any links to some cool ironhead swing arm chops?

The problem stems from relying on internet opinions to frame your perspective and actions.


Just get out there and (buy bike, ride bike, re-engineer bike in garage etc..)
just DO IT.
