    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.

    Thanks for sharing it! I'd love to know which page so I can learn more about other interesting motorcycles. I've tried to be a student of style and lines for over three years now and still have a lot to learn. What is the page called?

    dnutAwesome looking bike,, I still working on mine. it's a
    Worksman though. Haven't decided on the drivetrain yet. Possibly a cool new V-twin electric motor Pat is working will look good.
