Finally got them up! Cut the front half off and goosed it alittle. Had a guy make the neck and reweld all of my shit ones. Most of it I traded for or was laying at a friends house. The oil tank I cut down to fit from a extinguisher. Still got to redo alot of things but I guess this is the look it is going to have. Still dont know about the tank, might switch to a sporty but who knows. Dave

Nice rake,stretch and length..it "sits" pretty damn good...!
That's why I would go for shorter, lower profile bars..but that's just me..
Keep us informed !

that is really sweet. its got a really good stance to it. i say keep the tank, a sporty might look too big. awsome man, nice job.
Thanks Guys Its my first chop! My main thing was I didnt want the front end way off the ground I came pretty close to level had to chop the forks down some and when I get a rear tire it should raise it some in the ass and make it closer to level. The Tank is jap thin so I just tacked it. to get the spot, so I might try to find one similar to it. It looks alot better to me since I got it out of the garage and have seen a good picture of it. I still have a love & hate feeling about it, but I guess when you build something its kind of hard to please yourself. Thanks Dave

Looks good. I do think some drag bars would look better, but that's only what I would do were it mine. I do think you'll find you are gonna need some forward controls with a seat that low, unless you are real short your knees;ll cramp up with the stock midcontrols. Just something to think about, that could make the difference between a bar hopper and something you'll want to take long trips on.

knees and discomfort aren't an issue when you're young.............

(of course when you get older you pay in spades for that shit)
