I've got a couple pics of the bike from Vegas Bike Fest. I'm not into "custom" looking bikes, but that bike was really awesome. I'll try to dig up the pics and post them when I get a chance.

If I build a bike that needs a springer, that's the one I'm using.

If he isn't getting credit, he should let 'em know.

Thanks for the back up. SEMPR FI

I go tot tell ya, Hanks a good guy.
We talked a bit about this front end. He asked me if I could build a 3 deg. raked springer and I told him I never heard of a raked springer but had an idea of how to do it and he said go for it.

So he has a 3 deg. raked springer, 8" over with 2" longer rockers.

I think that gas tank Kicks ass.

Hey Trent, I am keping your frame this weekend for the sleezeey riders deal.
(it's too cool to let go) I'll see you Friday.

On more than one occasion I've told idiots to stop looking at my bike and see the player set up. Pointing to KBD's springer, I explain.
Local HOG member, "that's really done by hand&#8230;"<O:p</O:p
Me, "yes, this guy George from Arizona keeps his pimp hand strong".

George, the first I knew of you was when Tom showed up at my run on that bike you built in Sturgis. Your work transcends words. I respect talent , and you sir, have loads of it.

FWIW, Hank does seem to be a cool guy, I got the pleasure of drinking a beer with him when Cole was here for the bobber show a couple years back.
