    I also used the stock handlebars as well except I wrapped them with black cotton tape.

    Nice...this is going to look great! Stance in awesome with those springer forks :)
    ditto on the neat frame patch job, and I dig the green rims with existing paint. I'm a big fan of square profile cruiser tyres, I have a set I want to use on my next build. They're not seen much in Australia, but I think they give a bike a bit more of a solid, kinda 'tough' look.

    Looks cool!
    I like how the drop out extensions line up with the lines in the frame. Well thought out!

    Thanks! A lot of planning went into the final design! I like these tires as well. I feel like they have an old school new school feel to them.

    Haha thanks! Yes it is long! At first I didn’t think I was going to be able to ride it because of how different the bent fork rides but now I’m so used to it I hardly notice it. Rides great!

    Great build going on! I love those extensions! They are so much cooler than the ones that Milli Vanilli had! :D
    Honestly, those are killer!
