its from Vtwin so not sure who makes it, if its thiers or whoever.. we had to do alittle tweaking to get it to sit right but nothing major so Id prolly wouldnt mind buying from them again. my buddy has a santee and his looked like it needed about the same or a little bit more adjusting then this one. Im happy as hell wit hthe way it came out.. Im just spending hours trying to find the right seat,fender and oil tank combo..plus gas tank so it has just enough to set it off..

very cool bike man. I hot rodded out a 75 FLH last summer and really wanted to do the hardtail but didnt have the means to either lift/crane it or remove the motor. (my garage is sad... 'fer sure)

really good work though. I love the stance.

what bars are you going to run on it when done? the drags? mini apes? in my opinion the gas tank is mainly influenced by the bars. sporty tanks rule tho. never go wrong with a sporty tank.

cheers!

Seeing your sporty tank on yours makes me want to switch my tanks out! Just keeps getting better.

yeah that tank is cool. Put some nice up swept bars...sorta like the attached but without the risers...and a 2 piece seat and call it a day. I dig the bare fender too.

It has some potential...oh and I like horse shoe tanks personally.

well life seems to always get in the way of things when they are gettign good.. the past couple of months have been crazy and I havent been able to do much on the bike until today..I picked up a length of pipe about 15 inches long, 37 pounds and about 3/4 of an inch thick the other day and today I got to play on the lathe to etch out an idea I have.. heres todays update..


I guess you all figured out what Im doing already....
