    One thing I haven’t figured out is fork stops. The bars clear the tank but the forks hit the neck of the frame. Still brainstorming on that one.

    I wanted to see what the taillights look like on the bike so I rigged them up real quick. This is the tail or running light. Click image for larger version.

    This is a great looking scoot! I love seeing thing repurposed about as much as handmade... Kudos on the tail light, looks good!

    Thanks for the positive feedback guys, I really appreciate it. Another detail Iím really excited about is this Cadillac emblem I found that fits perfectly around the gas cap. The Harley emblem on the cap itself was pulled off the original cam style cap that came on the bike.

    This is so bad ass. I've always said I wanted to do the same thing with a caddy taillight. Looks killer!

    I’m still waiting to get my seat back from upholstery but I got the bike running and was able to ride to a gas station and back without it dying. I’ll update y’all again when I get the seat. I’m also working on a bike rack for my bmx that I’m pretty excited about.

    Here’s some shots of the bmx bike rack. Pretty stoked on how this turned out.

    Looks heavy duty - anything for additional support under the fender between the bungs?

    In photo #3, not sure, but it looks like your rear sprocket is out of alignment - looks like a bend in the top row of the chain, and coming off at an angle at the bottom of the sprocket?

    Optical illusion I think, in this picture it looks fine. Click image for larger version.

    And I’ve been thinking about reinforcing the fender. Maybe just a section of 1/8” flat bar will help but not rub.

    Totally forgot to update this! I’m pretty much done with the build, just working out kinks now.

    I didn't mess with the rake, so whatever is stock on an 81 ironhead.

    The forks are 31" from the bottom of the tree to the axle.
