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

I'll second that......I think we should start a thread where guys
can share their garages /shop..with everyone (if there's not one already)
I understand some not wanting to share for different reasons but I really
enjoy seeing where others get the work done. Big/ small... clean/dirty
doesn't matter.....what so you guy's think....and yeah it's not a contest
but if if it were.....I'd have to vote 1st place for Dutch's....love it...

I dig it.
The bucks alone are a work of art.

touch down... first time street level, almost. Buck is pretty much done. Not sure yet what shape the lower front of the fenders is gonna have... there will be some kind of runningboard but shape unknown yet. License plate on decklid, round taillights tubed in fenders , twin exhaust cutouts in lower rear panel...

time to go make some noise
