Default 1924 Harley BTR Tribute

Hey Guys!

I finally have some time to post up my latest completed build. It's inspiration was a 1924 Harley. This was my first time using some high quality parts from Sportsman Flyer and I'm not sure if I can go back now. lol.

Here's some highlights of the parts:
Sportsman Flyer frame (ordered a complete bike from Worksman since Pat was out of stock)
Sportsman Flyer Indian Style Tank (to get the rounded look)
Sportsman Flyer mount system
2 Stroke motor from Norm
Heavy Duty Monark Front Springer Fork

Although it took a little longer to get the parts from Sportsman Flyer than originally estimated, the quality made up for it.

Here's the final project as it's being displayed in a gear-themed barber shop:

Hi Keith,
Geeze, that bike looks beautiful. Nice job on the Patina. Looks like my new favorite barber shop, too. Thanks for sharing the pics and thanks for starting your build with a Flyer frame!

I repurposed an old brass HD badge I found. Drilled holes to allow venting.

I've posted one picture and the page link on FB to an Interesting Motorcycles page. Lots of people want a realistic looking BTR but don't do anything about it because they think it has to be a full 1,000cc "investment"motorcycle.
