Default 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
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

The thing about a '39 Ford pick-up is that that ugly grille kinda' grows on ya' after a while.

Not taking anything too seriously.

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

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.
