    Here is what i have so far not much to look at now .The wood tank is what i use to get my curves in the tank im building beats walking back and forth to the bike . The rims and tires are just for rolling it around it will get some new wheels.[​IMG]

    Yeah I'm leaning towards white walls to . The whole bike is going to be black so the white walls will break it up a bit .
