It was a Hand me down from an uncle that passed away.

How clean and perfect it looks. Oh and the polished cases and polished nickel plated drive chain

 

What do other people say about your motorcycle?

It is a constant winner at any Ohio bike shows it has been in and recently it has been awarded Best of show in TWO different Thunder Roads Ohio Championship bike shows. So I guess people really admire my build.

    I guess changing the seat, pipes, and foot controls by ordering parts out of a catalog is a ” build”…

    Steve…. should you ever get the chance to view that bike you would give it the credit it deserves and know that that build was not a out of catalog build.
