Welds

That pic of the rear frame reinforcement shows welds that look unfinished. It appears to be just tacked in. Is this an illusion? SUPER WORK. I dig all the fabrication and the style too.

Very nice!

I'd be proud to be seen on it too. If I may be so bold, Looks like you have more than enough skill to fab up some nice frame fittings to sweat that torque bar in place so that it looked original.

Very nice work. I can really see the thought and detail that you put into this bike.
I hope that my flathead looks as good as yours when it gets done. I'm making a big transion from Panheads to Flatheads.

I see that your on the "Left Coast" of FL. We used to have a Bones over here in Daytona that used to have a shop with JR and later worked at Millers. The last bike that I saw that Bones owned was a Flathead 45 that he would park in front of Millers. Is that you?

Very cool ride. Love the look of a VL frame. Great job on the bike. Years ago at a shop I worked at we put a 80" flattie in a VL frame with electric start to boot!

Dukey,
The Bones you're asking about is my brother, never thought I'd see his name on an internet forum. :shock: Anyway, he hasn't worked at Miller's for years and that yellow 45" went to his wife, who is now his ex. His ride is a sort of lime green '48 UL and he's still around. Don't know what's happened to JR.

The Tube Sock Motor looks great, love all the detail!

jfb,
Jr is living off US 40 in Barberville. He's bought five acres down a dirt road in the woods. I was over his place a few weeks ago to get some polishing done.

Dukey,
Sounds like JR, he always liked the outskirts. He gave me the 18" Borrani rim for my Flathead project way back when.
