I don't see much movement here yet this month.
It's literally freezing here.... and work in the garage has slowed to almost zero as well.
SO..... I'm throwing one out for you guys to bash on

Instead of enjoying bikes I already have, I built this instead.....

Not a streetfigher in any sense really...
It has a steel tube frame, wire wheels, aircooled engine, RWU forks, and passenger accommodation even.....
But it is a muscle bike, a forefather to the streetfighter in many ways.
And who doesn't like musclebikes.....?

It was pretty weak when I found it, as it had been left for dead out in the AZ sun since 1990.



But I could see some life in there somewhere....




Once I had an idea where I was going with it....It became a nut and bolt reconstruction. (nuts and bolts included)


To finally this...Use this pic to vote
