I've been wanting to build some sort of scoot for years, but always had a Hot Rod or Custom I was working on.... still do, but it was time. Wasn't sure which way I was headed with it, first I thought I'd go the British route, maybe Triumph or a BSA. I looked at a few projects and runners, but they just weren't doing it for me. I finally decided on a mid 70's Ironhead Sportster. Again, I looked at a lot of projects, and came close to the purchase of a runner or two, but if it wasnt one thing it was the other. Between bikes that were misrepresented, to ones with registration problems, I was lucky enough to find one that was very nice, complete, and for a great price too! I'm real weak on computer skills but think I may have figured out how to post pics, so I'll try. First will be a before and after (now) shot. I took some pics along the way, I really should have taken more, but I just get carried away working sometimes.
