Hello from (currently->) sunny Northern-California!!
I finally bought my first Harley!
Sure, it's just a servi-car motor but you got to start somewhere right?
This is NOT the first bike I've attempted to build, however, so I've got big dreams of a quick build.
(But does that ever happen?)
I've scored a few parts of e-bay and Craigslist and everywhere else...
I have it sitting in a shovelhead frame right now but I'm looking for an actual 45 frame (and not a servicar) 'cause I don't trust my arc welding skills to reinforce the raked frame, and the fact the shovel frame is heavier and a few other things!
If anyone wants to TRADE a shovel frame and a Triumph 650 frame or two for an old wl frame or something that would be awesome!!
Anyways, here's a link to my first mock- up pic, I tried for quite some time to post the normal pic but that does not seem to be happening....

So yea, it will be "short chopper style" but I don't plan on modifying the frame at all, so I guess a "flashy bobber" might be a better description? I dunno... everyone gets so specific about that foolishness!
