    Default my little ironhead bobber build

    This is what I started with
    a pretty clean 73 xlch ironhead
    it had been siting for almost 7 years

    so a little tuneup was in order and a shit ton of kicking and you get this:

    and here is where it sits right now:

    Those "hammer in Hand " hardtails sure have some big axle plates - but the lines of the frame turn out really nice . I found those axle plates useful for mounting pipe brackets and stuff too . Looks great !

    Default Yeah

    There is alot of area there. Im going to do a digger sporty soon and have been scoping those. It does give a nice line going down the side, but there is definitely alot of rel-estate on those plates.

    Yeah the plates bothered me at first but the specs were exactly what I was looking for
    3.5 inches lower and 5.5 inch stretch that followed the backbone, I heard there was a santee rear that was close but seeing the finished product still didnt give me the look I wanted

    Yeah - thats exactly what i went through while i was looking for a bolt on . But now with mine done it looks and sits exactly how i wanted it to . My rear pipe goes over one and with my side mount license plate , the other side dont look to bad either - but when it first arrived in the mail i was a little shocked at the size . Another thing about those "hammer in hand" tails - it would take a friggin freight train to mess one up , they are stout !

    Default I dig it man...but...

    I don't like that bolt on. I thought mine was ugly, but those plates just look weird.
