the link will take you to 5 pics on webshots. as you can see, it has a long way to go---but it runs good--can't wait 'til it's broken in!! still got to work out the jockey shift.

Looks like the beginnings of one fine Tavern Bike, I like it.

So, what color are you think of going with?

i'm not sure about paint yet---might just do all satin black with black wrap on the pipes. i also have a cut down cam cover that i'm gonna use & am gonna cut down a sprocket cover also. glad you guys seem to like it so far!!

I'm not sure painting would be the thing, that bike looks cool as all with that unfinished look. Painting it might make it look too restored.

the sporty looks great frank, and welcome from the se coast (jupiter).
black would look great on your bike. i love the peanut tank and the sissy bar, that's how i remember them in the early 70's.

Frank, what good vibes your project emits! And it looks like it fits you nicely, too! Take your time getting it just the way you want! I think a few of us would like to know more about the history of the bike and how it got to where it is today! Now you have the best of both worlds...the RK will take you slowly in comfort, and the Sporty will take care of the rest! I've got money that the Sporty gets used more!

man, i'm surprised that you could pick out anything in my super full garage!!
my '99 road king is a great bike--just finished 2912 miles in 5 days in the mountains last week with absolutley no problems--but it doesn't have any where near the "soul" that my '68 already has. i may even sell it & build a pan or shovel bobber to go with the xlch since my wife has been eyeing the '68 a lot lately!!
