Here are a few bikes that have inspired me on my build. I was gonna buy a 79
Sporty that had been hard tailed and was an awesome looking bike very similar to the first bike below but wanted my first H-D to be something a little newer and more reliable that I knew I could keep forever. It took me forever to finally be able to buy one so I'm never going to sell it. It's kinda like me first born child in a way. The first bike is perfect in my opinion and I want to paint mine very close to it and put the old ironhead style lettering on the tank. The other bikes have a few styling cues I like as well.

Hey RHYD, can you post a direct side shot of that Bad boy? Looks like a Le Pera Bare Bones seat right? Want to see the side profile if you don't mind.
Thx J

Hi Johnny5 I dont have i side shot but will try and get one up ASAP, it is the barebones by Le Pera, it flows really well between the tank and fender. I have only had the bike a month and not quite figured out the rear end yet, definitley will get new shocks which are a little lower, I feel it sits too high however I do ride two up with my missus sometimes and need some fender to get the pillion pad on and need a little give/travel in the shocks ...

A guy on here has the same seat and he shows a side shot somewhere in his thread, here is a link to that thread it is worth taking a look..

Here is a photo with the Le Pera pillion pad hooked on to the barebones for a day with the missus, gives the bike a complete different look..
