I've even gotten inspiration from my Painters ol' '36 Ford Rat Rod truck...This this truck is bad...too bad he sold it. A tire changer for a NASCAR team owns it now I think:

The Board Track Sporty is just fantastic. That style, that era it to me what. Damm I just don't Know how to say it. I just love it. And if I ever have a bike with White walls it will look just like that Fat Boy.

1st Bagger Build: Did this bike in '08/09....in the hayday of the baggers....Custom Baggers are getting abnoxious to me anymore...They are getting to be like choppers, to stretched out, wheels too big and unridable...

I think this one was a nice blend of custom yet ridable.

Well...here we all see the red thread that makes a Harley perfect is without a doubt a rigid frame. It beats all other set ups. 99% of your pix has rigid frame

No more shox or softie for "Bos", tell you that.

Thing is , knowing you, next thing we will hear is you done gone the opposite way and bought a fugly deuce or whatnot

No, I didn't build it. The guy who did has a lot of talent, but he keeps real low key. I actually saw this bike in person around a year ago...it was repossed by Harley and sold at an auction.

Apparently, the builder does jobs for Harley shops. Cool. bike, lot of engineering and creative parts on it.

Some great looking bikes..lean towards the retro style most myself..and while the professionals are here just a couple of questions

Building a bike has always been floating round in the back of my mind and although I havent got the tools or know how I have ideas.This would be my starting point..Bobber style.

Retro tires will kill you seriously go check em first because they handle like chit and in the rain they will have you on yer ass

Copper is something I've wanted to run throughout a bike but IMO it's like gold in as much as it don't sit right with silver. Maybe ok with tins but rest would have to be diff shades and finishes of black.

Check out lloyds scoot after the first visit to the barn and then once blacked out after the second. The front end now works 100% better.

But ya gotta go for it. Don't think about it anymore, just get into it and post up here
