It started as a $45 rolling turd pulled from a scrap pile, motor turned over had some redneck compression, so i loaded it up. me and my 6 yr old son tore all the ugly shit off. He had an absolute blast and has helped a ton during the build, picked up a mustang tank at a garage sale, cut a little over 3 inches out of the middle and added a small tunnel.

Picked up and old 50s fog light from a junk picker, and took all the dents out and then figured out it was chromed brass so the bike is now going to have a few brass items on it. built the hardtail myself and the bars myself, rolled the seat pan out of some thick ass metal with a BFH and some soft ground in the backyard, built my own seat hinge, removed upper motor mount, trying to find some spoked wheels, with a rear drum. jockey shift ,foot clutch. shaving fork legs. doin the banshee swap with the pamco setup.

Got a knarly old 30s plow handle from the picker that ima use for the jockey handle. plan on useing a stock front fender on the rear, seems like a good standard. Completely open to questions, comments, criticism  let me know what ya think..

Thanks for lookin..  Pierre, SD
