    I purchased this bike knowing I would motorize it and after letting it catch my eye almost every day I've decided what to make it into. The bike will be a 1908 Indian inspired bike. I plan to copy the forks, seat, seat post, tank, and left side spindle jack-shaft assembly of the original bike. The rest, including paint color will be my own decision. The bars may get flipped to upright riding position. This one may take awhile and i want it to be mean and elegant at the same time. This photo is after the tear down and first mock up. Both wheels are 27". IMG_20191128_002135241.jpg

    This Jeep project has kept me busy but I still have the bike on my mind. It's still in my sight and it's taunting me. Seat post will be next.. IMG_20191206_161411_148.jpg

    It's a 4.0 from an XJ sport. No frame, no shame!
