This was our first bike build and most of the parts we needed my partner made by hand. The rear fender was shaped with English wheel, forks were shaved and sanded back neat.
Little Copper details were machine made with his Lathe, made battery box, with machined Rivets, leather straps for box, fake oil tank that keeps electrical neat and hidden.
Straight short pipes designed and welded, sissy bar, machined mount points welded to frame for Springer Seat set up, also had to remake inlet manifolds to suit repositioned Coil pack, Stripped back, painted with scallops.
Although I couldn’t do much fabrication wise was great to learn. I wanted to help the build and share the journey of our creation, I spent most of this time, scrubbing the engine, polishing forks, pipes & taking care of the lil finishing details, Thanks for looking 🤘🏼
