It continues to evolve. '51 Shelby tank, correct chainguard, and fat saw-tooth tread front tire. More changes to come:

Keep thinking the stem should be flipped and the bars raked back a little bit....:39:
I contemplated just about every handlebar possibility. But I did not physically try them all. I mounted the stem rearward to give the effect of a longer front end. I typically always like my ape hangers vertical. I also like having the grips sitting as horizontal as possible. I think that you are wanting the bars angled to match the fork angle. I do have ape hangers that I could set at the angle you are suggesting while still having the grips sitting horizontal. I might give that a try to see how it looks. This thing will never stop evolving as long as I keep thinking of different ideas for it. That's the part that's the most fun. How about mounting a drop stem forward? That would tuck the bars origin way up under the spring. Now you got me thinking. Thank you for the suggestion.
