I think next time I will use a heavier guage can... but for now this will work... Was wandering through a garage sale thinking about what I could do for a tag bracket... The sugar can for free just seemed to fit the bill at the time... :D

Wow, That thing is cool!
I went crazy after your black bike in front of the PU. I had one of those pickups and would loved to have that bike.
I Big and Little's are tough.

I like it!....a LOT!

Question, what brand seat is that? I'm in the process of restoring a set of old springs and need to locate the 'seat' part. That one looks perfect!

Cheers,

I would like to take this moment and thank everyone for the support and positive comments... I can't wait to get this thing done and on the road... This is turning out to be a great build... for myself and to watch others and how far they have come talent wise. I learn alot through all of this.... I want to wish everyone best of luck... You are all doing a great job... And for those of you not building this year... WHY NOT? Ha ha.. :lol: ... anyways... keep checkin in as the fun has only just begun....

Loving that color! Is that Krylon's 'Hosta' green?

Cheers,

Krylon.. Italian Olive...

Not wild about the color at the moment... Does not scream Kool Hotrod to me... I will let it set for a bit and see if it grows on me... 8)

Well... Other than putting another coat of green on today, nothing has moved any further along... Did break out the one shot and some brushes to warm up before the big game...
