Glad you folks like it.
Compared with my 1939W on original 18x4.50 Firestones (Coker replicas) I dont think the handling is any different. Those Avon tires are stock items much used by sidecar bikes etc.
The bullet lights are just marker lights, first step on key switch is those lights on and ignition, second step is headlamp on and ignition.
Rear rim, oh yeah you bet it will be painted.
The guy I bought the project from had a "chrome fetich" and I have allready blasted and painted many parts like ie the primary cases. I will redo the rear wheel for next season, black as the front wheel.
I need to say that the seat from Kurt is a piece that have really pleased me, that is great workmanship:-)
I first bought a seat from another 45" parts supplier that if to be commented tha language would not meet the criterias of this board (I sold it to a guy that now uses it on his Guzzi).
The custom parts are from well known e-bay sources.
The pin-striping is done by a local guy with limited experience, but I think he did it well.
I bought the pillion pad from a gentleman on e-bay that it showed up had the Texas (or maybe even US?) drag record for 45"`s. He gave me a link for a webpage regarding this but I seem to have lost it as well as this chaps name. If this make any bells ringing I would apprechiate having this link saved as a fav on my computer.
45"`s are fun
