I haven't looked at this bike for ages so I thought I'd stick some pics up just to kick me into working on it again.

75 FL motor that was rebuilt professionally before I got near it. Frame is a VTwin 48 replica with all the correct castings.
Late model FL springer was another Trademe score, like just about everything else on this bike.

This is how it looks at the minute. Nearly working.

And before anyone asks, I didn't want to put Fat Bob tanks on it. That would have looked stock and there are loads of other bikes like that around. I like it better this way. Very Happy
The big tanks went onto the Evo.

That's what Pete asked me last night. I just never got round to tightening off the primary and fixing the electrical fault in the spot lights. Lazy really. I'd like to get back into it soon.

I picked that one up at Pete's and brought it home. He still doesn't know if he wants to sell it but I thought if he didn't see it for a while he might get used to the idea. I want to see what it would look like o the front of the Ironhead.
Hopefully after this week I will get more spare time. No more trips to Oz.
