No, I dont have those skills ;) Its a Tigman one off I picked up from someone. I am liking the stance.
I had a Triumph hardtail pretty much finished but tore it all back down when I found this frame. Flyright Springer , 21" starhub with disc conversion, triumph 16" cotten spool rear.

I have to change the exhaust mounts to accomadate the lowered pegs but i should be able to move them under the peg. I think i am gonna do a front master cylinder off the rear brake to run the front caliper to keep the bars clean...

..I am extremely curious how you plan on doing that setup...are you talking about "operating" both the rear drum and front disc from the rear break pedal?

Yes, that is what i am thinking... the problem may be the difference of the throw of the brake lever for the 2 different brakes. I could always do a remote MC and have a cable lever like the clutch lever. Thanks Spade ;)

gonna be able to turn with the pegs down low like that?

yeah i forsee that being a problem, especially given that the drum will 'operate' differently as it wears...

I will have to turn slowly. Good point , on the drum. I am not painting till winter . I like the bare metal. The handlebars , rear fender , and springer will.stay natural and alloy/chrome. I might keep it silver, along the natural steel color. Was thinking Patina finishes not shiny new.

Normally I don't like gooseneck frames, but that setup kicks ass. Kinda makes me want to ditch my frame and find one similar .... hmmmmmm....

Thanks, yea its not too hard t o line the bottom rails up level with the right size wheel. Yep there's headsteadys I will post more shots as I go. I am gonna give the pegs a test run before I drill new holes i need to get as much leg room as possible i want the bike to be able to be ridden.
