swap meet score...

got some stuff for cheap...

Now, I'll be the first to tell you, I fucking HATE cheesy "mock up", but, here I am guilty of it.

The sun wasn't even up yet as I zipped down to Belvidere, Il. Had to be back early and wanted to see what it was all about. I bought the window bars from one of the kemosabe and the lodge guys, the shocks are 12" off a cb450. Got it all for $65.00. Not to bad.

Nice scores! All you need is a v twin motor and you can make a Harley out of that Honda..

For christ's sake, will you slow the fuck down on that bike! Making me feel like a deadbeat! All I got so far is a crappy sketch and oil and fuel all over my shop floor.

Looking good my friend!

Oh, will someone adopt my kids and take over my sign shop so I can work on my bike...I'll trade you for your dogs Tom.

Are those blinkers sticking out of your seat rail tubes?

i like it! can i widen that tank? no one widens

tom said...

Ben: It's simply Harley envy.

Dan: Yes, those are blinkers sticking out of the seat rail tubes, stuffed 'em in there to keep the mice from nesting. You can certainly have my dogs, but I don't want your kids, they look like trouble.

Aaron: No, I wanna be accepted by the Harley Owners Group riders, no tank modifications allowed.

Oh people widen. Pro-street custom...you just need to stretch it about another 12-18 inches too.

I think you could fool the HOG dudes with all that Harley stuff. Just wear some chaps and a different HD t-shirt from every dealership you drive past and they won't even notice that Honda engine in there.

I second Dave's recommendation. Widen it, stretch it and buy some chaps...you'll be all set then. Maybe a tribal flame paint job would be in order as well!

A 300 rear tire too.
