    This is going to be a very nice bike. I like all the details in the seat, tail light, brass pegs are awesome. That is the same type of carburator setup i want to do but don’t know if i will or not yet. Which bike is your brothers, is it the one with the extreme looking tank?

    looks awesome!! very similar to the one im building in my dining room. did a bobber last year and then came across a bitchin triumph chopper frame cheap…couldnt resist. its gonna be some work gettin the xs into that frame but i think it will be worth it.

    thanks I try to make it the way I saw it .I really like the old school look . dave gave me a great foundation to build on. I’ve done 80% of the welding my self they may not be as pretty as dave’s . but they work. it was fun to do went to school for welding and ended up working with wood 25 years later find my self playing with metal building my bike
