I did this little shadow last year and did a very poor mans job. Rode her around and enjoyed it very much, but then cut again her with bigger ambitions planned.

When I got the bike

The first go round
70796
70797

The chop
70798

I originally was going to bitch out and keep the sway
Bar to make life easier, my main goal was single back
Bone. But a slip of the hammer revealed how rusted out
The sway bar was.

This is the first frame I ever built. I used a harbor freight press and a propane torch for all my bends.

70799

Not sure what direction Im going, just making it up as I go.

Thanks bud.
Motors been sitting for almost a year. Took a minute to get the bowls filled but once she caught she fell into a smooth idle.
Out of go-go funds at the moment, so it's just nit picking shit until I can get my hands on a tank.
