So my Springer turned up today. I reckon a bloody good deal. $800NZD landed. 2"over...So what do you guys think. 16inch spoke wheel or the black mag for that sturgis look.....Now I just gotta work out how to post a photo here,,,,Back soon, off to read the instructions

So I am thinking the only reason to go with the mags would be to create a Sturgis look,,, black everything with red pin stripping... I love the 16 fat front wheel as well....dammit...it will come to me in my sleep,,,

No mill yet,,, but have established some leads to follow up.... it will be a shovel with kicker only and possibly suicide...

Suicide Shifter,,,,ie foot clutch and gear stick....
So here is the look with the mags, imagine some sturgis pinstriping



And here is what it could look like with the fat spoke wheels

Rolling Eyes the whole matt black look is too one dimensional. Chrome, matt, and pinstriping is the way.(fat front is the goes as well) Cool Cool

Its been a while,,,but the bobber is still in progress,,,still no motor but front end and axle is sorted and the tanks and tins are painted and pin stripped to match my Buick....so next stage is to find that elusive shovel motor for a reasonable price,,,,,
