    Very cool!
    I love it...

    maybe you can do an intro in The Intro Section
    so we know who's building
    the killer bike!
    I can't wait to see this one in progress!

    peace,
    Kev.

    Welcome.
    The bike looks like it might have been a contender "as is" although that's against the rules. Are those stickers all over it?
    This bike is perfect for what you are trying to accomplish. Wonder what it would look like with a springer fork of some kind.

    Yep, no year regulation!
    If you decide to toss the bars, snap a picture and send it my way. I might be interested.

    Are you HAMBer? Just wondering because of your username. Thanks

    about the old handle bars, i want to try a flat bar first if that makes it to hard to turn i want to try ape hangers, but if i cant find any i can afford i have to keep the ones i have now.

    forks

    yeah those were stikers, man i think the hardest part of this build is removing them, theres like 4 or 5 layers.

    i think it would look awsome with a springer fork, but im a noob when it comes to finding stuff like this, so if anyone could help me find some that whould be awsome! thanks.

    if I could make a friendly suggestion, I would say ditch the stock moped style kick stand and figgure out a swing out harley style kickstand.

    even if your learnin..it's a cool bike and you'll make it look wicked!

    it's in the blood!

    peace,
    Kev.

    bring your neck with yaa to the dump!
    if you see Handle Bars your wondering about you can size em up.

    heck..bring the whole bike with yaa.it doesn't hurt for true measurments to have it in the Truck!

    "outsider13" seems to be the master at adapting true Harley Ape Hangers to Bicycles so PM him..
    I'm sure he'd help yaa out..
    Your bikes looking great!

    I've got a Chopper style seat - it's yours if you want it.
