HD trike

I hear there`s a lack of build threads here so I thought I throw this one in. Not exactly ratty but it`s got wheels and I`m fiddling with metal so...

My customer delivered the bike with a body model made of 6mm round bar... which I completely ignored and started from scratch :p :D
Dropped the seat an inch or two and started from there shaping and building the mould.
Hope to start beating some sheet into submission in the next few weeks [P

Nice buck.

thanks for checking in guys. I`ll keep you posted. Won`t be a quick process as the customer needs to save up / starve his family to keep going :D

nope. I will try to meet the looks of the front fender as much as possible, but he the owner bought it and loves it so it will stay.... even with wrong radius...

You metal shaping guys I swear have an in-born talent that cannot be taught. The rest of us twist and contort metal to fit our needs but you guys caress the metal and it shapes to meet your vision.
As Mr. C says, you have a cool shop in an idyllic setting and you do great work too.
