Default My work in progress '75

Sorry for the cramped pictures, Im in the middle of pouring a pad so its real messy looking.

I got my hand shifter mounted up I have to say it feels great so far. I haven't taken it out on the road yet but sitting there it feels very comfortable going from handbars to the shifter. I decided to not go the foot clutch route because I dont like the idea of not having both feet available if I need them.

I also got my stock Roadglide handlebars on. I can't believe how much better these feel than the pull back drag bars I had on.

I have a ton more things I want to do but so far I am really digging the bike. My favorite part so far has to be my AMF gas tank though

I know it may not be the "popular thing" right now. Everybody doing the bobber thing and all, but I have always had a soft spot for the old "chopper" look.
It may be from growing up in NYC and seein' them all over.
