Default the 6:47 special (swedish oddball)new pics 8/6-11

ok i'm a sucker for the odd stuff thats it so this will be another one not of the shelf
have bought an wery cool engine today with gear indications and 2 exhaust ports and awesome looking engine halfs,rims are 17" with white walls and the paint will probably be wery dark blue with gold striping,not sure what tank to use yet,either the one in the pics or a little bigger one we'll see





i spotted a small design error with the first set of cut out engine mounts (a line thru the frame/engine didn'nt match) so i cut new ones the "old way" will spot weld them before tigwelding the entire bike after all things are in place

Two questions:
1. What kind of car is that behind the bike?
2. What is that bracket just behind the back of the tank? It almost looks like it could be a monoshock, but it clearly isn't.

I love non-traditional customs. Extra kudos because my ancestors were Czech.

no it's not

i don't know what it's from i bought it years ago because it looked awesome ,1 problem though with it is that the tunnel is wery deep so i have to make an overflow pipe fitting underneath to even the fuel level out,it's probably sitting wery vertical in it's original application
