For my efforts, I am just shootin for a classic bike that I am digging. It may touch on many different styles, but to quote a buddy of mine, let's call the vibe "choppermint". This bike has been dancing on my brain for some time now, so it feels good to finally let it out. Starting with a 1947 Knucklehead engine sitting comfortably in an early OEM frame, with a VL springer out front. A few "ideas" still to iron out; a custom dual Linkert setup, narrowed hubs, narrowed oil tank, built gas tank, sissy stick, and Hellings bars and risers. Undecided on wheel and tire setup so I'm keepin my options open - dual 19's, 18 rear and 19 front, or 18 rear and 21 front. Of course to wrap things up, the bike will be adorned with all the frills that deems the name show bike, but it isn't being built with sitting idle in mind. As you can see from the pics, most of the parts collection has taken place, so now its time to really get at it. See you in the sunshine. Be great!
