Mocked up the frame on my lunch break for the first time...

So i mocked up the front end, 18 over, that i just got by way of Brooks, thanks Brooks, from Grant down in LA and at FMA. The front end is amazing old chrome, ford radius rods used to extent it, and it just looks bad ass. Its got some nice patina on the chrome in spots to give it that extra bit of experience. I see those small rust spots like wrinkles in a old weathered mans brow. The frame is there, and ive got a few different tanks. The one i want to use, im going to have Lucky B letter up and throw on there... I dont think those will be the tired i go with and certainly not the disk break, its just what was lying around... Im really stoked on this bike, and special thanks to Dave for getting me motivated to start it, and Grant for the parts. Now ive got to get motivated to find the rest, like a panhead... anyone? but here we are... mock up 1.
