    Almost there. 90% done with the brake, still need to paint the seat pan and get the oil lines buttoned up to where they quit leaking. But really really close.

    Turns just fine. Definitely not a knee dragger, but does just fine so far.

    Sorry, it's been a while since I've checked this thread..

    The bars are a set of 50's Harley bars that were welded directly to the DNA (yes, it's a POS chineese springer front end, and it works and looks terrific. $$ was the deciding factor when I purchased the front end) upper clamp. The Harley bars were selected for the internal throttle and clutch worm drive. However, I just dont have the arm strength to run the clutch... it's just too difficult to hold for long periods of time.

    Yes Trevor.. whoever did the bodywork on that tank IS a madman!

    And thank you guys for the accolades. Rode the bike all summer, and it's a ball! Turns heads everywhere and I just love it. Want to build another one!

    Yes, I ran the rear brake line through the frame.. works pretty well! Teflon lined bicycle cable sheath routed up the rear tube from under the bike, turns and runs into the rear subframe, then out of the upper subframe tube and straight to a holder and to a modified brake arm. No safety backup, but it stops. :/
