    Cool looking bike man. I like that the bike has progressed as your skills have progressed. Also cool that your Ole Lady is right along for the ride. Trust me, it makes life a lot better!

    thanks to everyone. Dan, I've posted a before/after photo from when I got it to where it was last summer, you may have seen that floating around.

    wow this is a great thread. Props for really just jumping into a building. You've done a lot more than I have and it seems to have worked out pretty well.

    Wow. Neat story about the build. Your welding skills are much like mine--crappy starting out...and just serviceable now. Keep it up!

    well my bike keeps on changing so I thought I would update this a little.

    rode it around all summer with different chalk all the time, mostly from other people drawing on it, which was fun-


    but then I started to not like some of the "flashy" stuff on it. so I took of the brass kicker at put the stock one back on, took off brass rocker nuts, changed bars, put on some reasonably priced 900cc rockers.


    and now that it's winter again, time to start doing more stuff. on my list is- high pipes, I put new headlights on (thanks girlfriend), needs rings, front drum will go on, and I'm going to attempt my own oil tank that hopefully works. started on pipes-




    (my girlfriends feminine chalk work, not mine)-


    first time welding pipes, it's been super fun so far. made it follow the lines of the hardtail and sissy bar. hopefully matching pipe number 2 will go smoothly, although I think it'll require more time.

    Looks good. Thanks for documenting your progress; it's good to read/see what you've done to your bike.

    Cool bike! and you've rode it the whole time, mine sits for a long time before I get back on it.

    You don't still have the 4 over tubes by chance?? I've been lookin for a '78 shovel, I really should ask before I forget.

    I do have the 4 over.. I think they are in the background of the last photo. either those are the 4 overs built up, or my 2 unders. either way yes I have them. they are on the list of things I should sell

    Bad ass! Never thought of using chalkboard paint. Coolest idea I've seen on here in a while!
