Picked up Higgy from the pinstripper today. I was happy happy happy. A big shout out to Billy Jay Customs in New Palestine Indiana. I gave him a general idea of what i wanted and told him to use his own judgement. He suggested black and cream colors. I wasn't 100 percent sold on that but trusted his experience. I really liked the end results. Now its on to cleanup and final photos. May be one more little add on if i can find it. The finish line is in sight.

Perfect touch for this build!!! I need to find a Billy Jay in my neck of the woods! That looks awesome on there! Cool patterns and the Higgy O on the guard is killer!

Well i think i'm calling this one done. I lowered the headlight down with another bracket and like it better. I changed the valve caps out for a set of original Crown gas give away caps. I didn't get the fenders finished but they may go on later. Rode it to the local beverage market, and yes a 30 pack will fit in the rear rack/beer rack. It's been a fun first build and allready looking for parts for next years BO. I may venture out in the early morn before the sun gets to bright for a few more pics. I think i already have my cover pic but i'm still editing what i took today.
