Excellent bike, lots of work went into making that beauty. Someday I hope my bike is worthy to be submitted...

I think he knew what he wanted before he started and that is usually the key to success. Putting a custom bike takes lots of planning if you want to get it right. The pinstriping is really nice on this bike.

Your right, Ralph -
But I also let my indy guy run with it (within a certain budget), and it came out much better than what I thought I wanted!

DAAAAMN!!! That is one sweet ride. I totally love it. The only thing that would make it look meaner IMHO is a nice 240 rear tire (not that I'd kick it outta my garage for leakin' oil though) other than that it looks absolutely INSANE!!!

Looks great! How do you powder coat just the middle part of the disk brake? Does the powder coater mask it off?

TN Sportster,
thats one of My favorite bikes I've seen! It sounds like We have alot
In common. I'm a southern boy (Alabama), play In a rockabilly band, and I'm
obsessed with that Hot rod Culture traditionalist stuff! I Love the pinstripinging! love the wheels! I've often fantasized about doing the red wheel / whitewall combo. You did A Great Job! I have a 2004 1200 custom
but mines stock for the most part. You nailed It brother! Thats the look i Love! great Job!
