Greaser - A tribute to the 50's Hot Rod.

The bike is a 1953 Hawthorne. I've tried to include all the key elements of 1950's Hot Rods and Lead Sleds. Modified drive train, custom shifter, aftermarket gauge, drop mirror, flamed paint job, lowered frame, chrome hub caps, flaming "exhaust"... It's all there! If you'd like to check out the build thread please follow this link -

I had a blast building this bike! So without further delay... crank up the Rockabilly, read on and enjoy!
