New mock-up.

I moved the build back out to the garage since it is starting to "warm up", however there is still snow on the ground.

I figured I would see how it looked with the original tank and handlebars back on.  Don't really care for the look, I will be looking for a skinnier, smaller tank and taller handlebars.

New Seat

I bought a new solo seat for the build, it arrived last week.  I had thought about building one myself, but saw this one for a good price springs included and free shipping!  Cant beat that!

Donnie Smith Motorcycle Show and Swap Meet

Went to the motorcycle show today and my wife was nice enough to accompany me!  It was packed, but saw some nice custom bikes and a lot of club vests .  I did not buy anything, but found some inspiration and motivation.
 This was a Yamaha XS650.  I really like the bike, but the paint aint my cup o tea!
 72 Honda CB450, very similar to the engine and frame from my build, just a bit bigger engine.
 1922 Harley Davidson, enough said!
 Really like the style with this custom, cant remember the year.  Harley Davidson.
 1970 BSA Lightning 750, beautifully restored bike.
1930's?  Cant remember the year, Indian.
