Just finished up!
This is just a way over the top build. Love it.:thumbsup: What is that headlight? When you made the tubes to go from the rear frame kick up to the center tube did you use 1 1/8" tubing or reduce it to 1"? A million questions about this one.:umm:

P.S. I`ll just go ahead and nominate this one for the 2025 calendar now.:yikes:

Thanks! Its an old harley headlight I found at a swap meet. I downsized the tube there to 1" and bent it by hand

So much to see there! I’m still taking it all in. Tell me about that front brake, I’ve never seen a drum that has actuating levers on both sides of the drum like that. 🤔
I've heard of, almost mythological, four-leading shoe front brakes. Fitted to racing bikes before the advent of disks. And to exotic Italian road bikes or high-end café racers. Could be?
