    I just got finished with the major work
    on my 1st MotorBike project.
    I disassembled, inspected and painted the
    BGF motor. I added the Pyramid Springer,
    and the rack for the fuel tank.
    I'm thinking of using a Harley oil tank
    for a fuel cell and mounting it under the rack
    behind the seatpost. I still have some detail
    work to do, as well as the maiden voyage. :ride2:

    Is that a drum brake on the front?
    If so, where did you get it?
    Nice Bike, the white tires are a good choice.
    I picked up a set of Apes' that match the rims
    still debating on using them or not.
    I'm thinking about an Indian Head for the front fender ?

    I built a new front wheel using a Sturmey Archer X-FD drum brake.You can get it with a dyno also.The tires are almost too white sorta blue white.A cream color I think might look better.Ron

    Two very nice bikes, great job guys. I also find it interesting that you both chose the same color scheme, I really dig the black and red hot rod look. Nice work to both of you, enjoy the ride...Kelly
