It's funny, I was just going to suggest that. Because with over 150 posts, no one is going to read through everything to find your posts saying, "Ok, for the last time I'm not doing a bobber, I'm doing a rat/custom/chopped/filleted/bubbled/monkey/grape-nuts/toaster/sponge-waffle."

I definitely agree with the approach on this project - I've never been much of a cruiser guy & harleys least of all mainly just because they do look mostly the same and I couldn't buy into the "lifestyle". I dig the old school look of this bike and the way its clean without a lot of flash. And I dig the way all the mods were done with rideability kept in mind. Basically keep up the good work. I subscribed to this thread two pages ago & its inspired me to look for a cruiser project of my own.

Thanks alot bro, i hope you find what your looking for.....I love cruisers cause theres just sooo much more you can do to them and keep rideability compared to Sportbikes, but thats just my opinion, I have seen some crazy sportbikes and still ride the out of 'em

Well there are a few people in here that wanna criticize your bike and tell you how to do it. Man you did it, you put your money in it, you tore it down, put it together. I like it. Looks bad to me. I like what you have done with it. Bobber, Rat Rod, whatever you want to call it is working out for sure. Love the bike. Keep on keepin on man. I almost bought one when i got my standard.

It is a cool bike. Man i messed up and rode my brother in laws street glide. what a difference. I guess because mine is more of a short ride, bar hopper. Love the bobbers man. Need to hit up a ride together. Id like to see that thing.

Just checking in here. I like what you are doing with your bike.

does that headlight bobble at night? that bracket looks like it may be a bit unsturdy.

Well I'm still tryin to get my seat pan looking right, I've messed with some aluminum but it keeps creasing so I might go to thicker weldable steel. I'll take pics hopefully when I get it done. I had alot of people looking at my bike today at the Crawfish Festival and some wanted to sit on it to get a feel for it since they were thinkin of buyin a Sportster. Anyways, Ill post newer pics of the whole Spring Seat, PCIII Install and Computer Hole Delete when I get it done
Heres a few as it sits
