    Stevo;

    Very nice indeed, you have a unique and beautiful motorcycle. What type of rear fender are you going to use?

    thanks and i am using the stock rear fender, just had it stretched 2 inches, thanks for the reply's also, and i understand about not your style, i am just going a direction no-one around here has, i tryed to make the paint look like it is from the 50-60's era. and slapped the La Rosa springer seat on her, rides alot better than i thought it would, my banana long john footboards ill be in wed. along with the finished fenders, i will post some finished pictures up hopefully thursday. i just wanted an older looking bike with the functionallity of a newwer ride. thanks again everyone

    i also fixed a problem i had by accident, i am 6'2 and felt like i needed a little more leg room, after putting the solo springer seat on it lifted me up some making my legs straiten out. it feels a ton better when riding, also the wire wheels sure make the wind a ton easier to handle. :D

    thanks glider, had a ton of complements on the color combo already, to be honest i seen it on an old bike from the 50's when i was a child and it has always stuck in my mind, that bike and paint job had to be 35 years old when i seen it, so i got my own

    I think it looks great!! I wasn't so sure until you posted pics with the rear fender.

    I love the paint and the big front wheel.

    Ride Safe!
