LOVE THE BARS MAN!!!!
I like how they are looking on this build too!!!

I just got a set of those this year. They are from a Murray Mark 3. I also had some faux ones made by @karfer67 five years ago for my SaltHammer build and I used them in a flipped position.

I had a set of these built by Adam Hooligan Copeland. Sure wish I hadn't traded them off.

I have few updated pictures. Not much for now but more will come soon. I gave the bike's original rusty basket an OA bath and couldn't believe the results! Looks brand new! I added the chain, red line pedals, and NOS sissy bar break light. Tightened up the seat and added some vintage break lever grips. She's about halfway done. I'm still doing a frame insert and running a light generator. Gotta add the speedometer cable too. Hope you enjoy.

These are my last build pics of my bike.
I finished the bike September 4. You'll notice I added a different speedometer and welded a wrench to my rear break hub. I also added a frame insert and a tall flag. I really enjoyed this build and can't wait for next year. Thanks
