    Oh yeah, I forgot I took this video the other day too. Hold your ears though, I didn't account for wind noise, lol!
    Hopefully this works...

    This bike is totally amazing to see in person! Beautiful build. It looks like it's going fast just sitting still... or maybe looking for a drag race. :)

    just a friendly FYI. the gold v8 pin came off a 53 not a 54. It was the 50th anniversary of Ford and most of the cars got one. .

    Thanks for the schooling, that's a detail I did not know. The '52-'54 Fords were otherwise identical except for minor grille changes. I still have the headlight rings and bezels from that car!
