Looks good Mike, I did tell you it makes ya brain hurt scratch I hope your not cheating and using heat on those bends. pale
All in all the frame looks great, Now you know why those skinny tyre bikes are so easy to build, But we had to start with the
hard one's aye Question Look forward to seeing it on it's feet.
I have really grow-in to hate Sportster motors and there dumb ass backwards way of mounting.
Still if it was easy everyone would be building them. Wink

how your neighbours handling the noise from the skyline type tin shed all hours
