    Haha thanks yeah he might. He had a really nice road master that He repainted and it had a springer fork. He was selling that one but I'm more interested in a project. That one was almost perfect with all the original chrome. I wanna build a fat tire bike next with a tank and a springer fork .

    That's super cool! I love the baby blue & creme color scheme.

    And I hope this makes your day: I think I have the perfect chainguard for you. I'll send you some pictures tomorrow.
