A friend of mine just finished this bike. Some ideas are new, some are stollen. Lots of hand made parts mixed with early Harley parts and assembled with tons of neat details. Brazed pre-war frame, 1938 lower end with later big top fed by an M-74B. Pre-war trans, original front end, star hubs, original rear brake and original floor boards. The pan shift tanks were narrowed.
The last photo was found on the web from the chopperfest. Perhaps some of you may enjoy looking at it. Cheers.

Now that's the shit!! Very fine example of a really clean bike without trying to do the phony "boardtracker" look like so many strive for and miss!
Your friend did good!!

I have to agree. I love everything about this bike. Everything. I'm really impressed with his use of chrome parts. Admittedly, I'm not much of a "chrome guy" but this one's got just enough chrome on it, and in just the right places to draw the eye around the bike in a favorable manner. Far too many builders just can't seem to grasp that concept.

...perfect bike man.

What type is that filter on the front downtube?
How is the "system" for the throttle cable?
