    Got this fenix lowrider frame that i started building before the buildoff started. Not happy with the paint so will be starting over from scratch. Doing a themed bike to my favorite college football team using a Springer fork. Still need to order a couple things. 20181003_185311.jpg

    Got the frame mostly sanded and got a loose mock-up done still need to order a few parts. I don't have the braces for the Springer fork so gonna make some out of some 1" angle iron. 20181005_191304.jpg

    Didn't like the angle iron for the fork braces so took this hanger thing and some wire lugs and made some new ones like these a lot better 20181013_154500.jpg 20181013_154557.jpg 20181013_183846.jpg

    Nice work on the springer legs.
    Love that high flange hub! What did that come off of?

    Found this chair on side of the road liked the way the back was shaped and thought I could make a sissy bar out of that 20181008_175121.jpg

    Got most of the sissy bar done still have a little more to do to it. Had to weld extensions on to the part I cut out of the chair back and welded a brace to help support it. Welded brackets to mount it to the frame and seat. 20181021_175202.jpg

    Brian, those tank halves look mint! Nice wood working job. And I think your back rest would tie in nicely, maybe don't cover it but paint it like the tank? Just brainstorming here....

    Thanks as far as the backrest I am kind of in the air cause I cut a different backrest but started thinking it was too corny will get a pick of that later.
