Default my Harley build

started with a santee frame and cant leave well enough alone. cut the down tubes and back bone out, dropped the neck 4" and stretched it 4" and then raked it out to 45. i am looking for a springer for it but don't find too many of them laying around in alaska. might just have to build one. after the front was done i just couldn't leave the back untouched so i cut it off too.

thanks guys this thread is going a little smoother than my triumph thread. that bike is not as traditional as this one. here are some pics of the axle plates up close and of some welds on the frame. i am moving into a new shop right now so it will be a bit before i post more pics.

Man, you should post some of your welds on the Friday art thread

I wish I could weld like that!

I always love seeing a stack of dimes! Looks like you have a well stocked shop up there. Look forward to seeing more.

Hey weaverscycles, would I offend you by politely suggesting that your work area could do with a tidy up!
