The BlackBird




Here's how it sits now. I still have a lot of plans for it. I will gradually morph it into what I envision as I ride it. The plan was to change up a few things really quick and ride it..... but in dealing with years of shoddy fixes and upgrades you find yourself investing a lot more time than you had first hoped in order to make it road worthy. You go to fix one simple thing and find ten other bigger problems. Now I know why so many "Choppers" can't be ridden around the block without falling apart. I've never had to deal with this since I built my first bike ground up which is what will eventually happen with this bike next winter.

I have a tank already made.... just waiting for a filler cap but still need to fashion some mid controls, bars, oil tank, seat pan and change out the pipes.
