So here is the build up so far. Still getting the tank painted, and should be done this weekend. I should be riding her in 2 weeks. It's been since the biltwell bash that she's been on the road.

Thats rad! Not many Nortons snort'n around in a hardtail. I have a line on two 750s and since I can't find an ironhead engine I might be commiting some serious blasphemy and putting a brit engine in an old sporty. sick bike though i like the springer inverted clubman combo.

Thanks CG, I'm still debating which way I'm gonna run the bars. Here is what it looked like when I first got her.

It's a -2 DNA. It looks bigger cause the front wheel is only a 19".
