I love the matching headlight bucket! Did the same with mine, it is all about those SMALL details! Glad to see others focus on the small things on these builds.

Total dechroming on this bike.if you like details,scroll back to the headlight mounts and front brake line run inside the handlebars.

Rat,thanks! I never imagined even botm! I'd still be building it just the same ...it's a labor of love. This bike is special to me. It's ride is smooth as glass,and strong. I'm used to a triumph rigid.( But I have another I'm building as well).
