Love the fact you can and are using such smoking cool wide fat wheels with your jack shaft builds. Dang I have to try that.

I want to see a pict of hammer finish up close on your new build if you get a chance to snap a picture.

Thanks Zip, it has been rewarding seeing things come together ;-}

My powder coater refers me to their powder supplier for color samples.

It is Copper Vein T375-BK07





Once I get her done I'll post up some finished pics so you can see how sunlight changes the look of it ;-}

Thanks KC for the Cu Picture of The copper textured finish. Very cool finish, Not sure how they do it. Post build picts for sure.
Thanks bigtime Fast Eddy for the very kind words. One always wonders if the efforts and plans wont work at all.
the sun finally came out today and was beaming into the garage so I snapped a few wide shots in the natural light.

Board from the -10 below weather here, so I installed a few more subtle details on the copper Indian.
1) added a antique ceramic seat plaque to the back and finished off the edges, and then screwed it on with mini screws.
2) changed the roundel to match the seat plaque # 15
3) trimmed off the tail light with stripe
4) painted the top of the pedal side chain Guard to match the bike.
5) Pinstriped the speedo dial top edge.
Picts below

Thanks Curtis, all I Have left to do is to make and add a couple top tank brackets out of some raw copper 1/16 " thick sheets I have laying around. The brackets that come with the tank are not enough for a super solid mount as it can pivot a bit with a push. Ill have to drill into the tank and use sheet metal screws sealed with JB weld I guess? Scary to drill 4 holes in a gas tank. Yeah its a bit nippy out there, its so cold it almost feels warm/LOL

How about copper water line clamps.They make some self tapping sheetmetal screws, used in auto work. They have a small v notch in them, and are finer thread, may hold better................Curt
