I did not build this bike from scratch; just added a few custom touches. There's still a lot of work to do before it will fire it up. I must give credit to Al for motivating me to rejoin the forum and contribute once again.

Man, thats looking really sharp. I like the tank there. Also how you trimmed the body. It looks much better now.

whats the plan for the exhaust?

Mike, I plan to make a lexan fairing to cover the fuel tank and one to go over the trees. The exhaust will be tight, so I may have to go with a header, coupling, and short tuned pipe from B.H. Hanson. Working the disk brake now...

Minor update - I guess. I plan to mount a different gas tank up front and make a fairing to cover it up. I've been working other projects and just found these photos tonight, which I took to the NHRA Thunder Valley Nationals in June 2014 to show the T/F Harley Drag Bike Drivers in the pits. They liked it. I need to finish this thing. The front fairing around the gas tank will be formed from green florist foam and fiberglassed over. Total time: 3-4 hours. That's something I should be able to accomplish in 2015...maybe.
