    Back Porch choppers / streets, looks nice!

    Hers what I got done this week. Got the swing arm tacked up, chopped those awful 8" bar risers and swapped the bars. Pondering now if I want to continue doing the exhaust down the side like I planned... kind of like it how it is now...

    @Streets are those bars silver blazed? Or can I just not see the tig welds in photo?

    Agreed, looks great. I'm a stainless nut. Everything from my engine stands, frame to fenders.

    Can't wait to see it! I should be starting my frame next week...

    Ranger, nothing like waiting til the last minute. I'm feeling pressure and all I have left is paint/powder then final assembly. I'd be a wreck if I didn't even have a frame yet!

    Haha! I'm not worried... yet... My motor has good conpression and I have all the bits to make it run. And I'm not going to worry about finishes until after the chopoff. But I now have all my machined and laser cut parts, so I'll be able to bang the frame out. It's definitely going to be down to the wire...

    I'll be at the fest for sure but my motor for the build just took a major shit. My problem is I don't wanna sell any of my others to fund this project. Changed positions at work, so now I don't have access to machining equipment.... I do have two other running engines but they're on other finished bikes. No overtime on my new position for the extra $$. My car took a shit.... White people problems. Haha! I decided to put together a roller to stay positive. Oh, also I lost my old sugar mammas contact info. Pretty sure she's blocked me anyway. Ah well, if it was easy, everyone would do it.

    June update.

    Last night it finally was able to be officially considered a roller! specs are -4 under narrow springer, 21'' front, 18'' rear TC tail. still a ton of detail work
    before breaking it all down for paint.
