God is in the details.

Even though some things will not be noticed directly, I feel that it is important to make the little things look at home in there place. All together these small details add up for a more convincing 'less than perfect' restoration.

Here's a few examples.

The Arrow has landed!

The finished bike was carefully packed and shipped back to it's owner this past week.

Shortly it arrived in New Mexico it was out of the box and assembly started!

There was no need for the peripheral parts like wheels, handle bars etc. to make the round trip, so I got to see the finished bike in pictures like everyone else.

I couldn't be happier with the end result!

Brant was very happy with his Shelby and is on the waiting list for another build coming down the line!

Here's a reminder of what it looked like when it arrived at my shop.
