          Your on the right track if that’s the look your after. Keep up the good work & integrate something of you into it….

            That thing's very Harley-esque! I'll bet a lot of guys don't give it a second look and just assume it's a Harley.

          but integrate something of me..? Is that a joke?
          The bike IS me, really.. my heart and soul, blood and sweat.

          So i did’nt really get what you meant with that

            He just means do something unique to it that no one else has. Your own personal touches.

            Runned out of gas to my welding machine, witch i didn’t really had time for.
            But thanks to that my seat is almost done.. just ordered some leather paint, it will be white when it’s done!

              Had to go borrow my friends welding machine.. guess you can se he is kinda into Harleys..

              started the colouring project on the seat as well, will be fun to se how that turns out

              got myself a pair of cadillac -59 struts for my rear turn signals as well.. if anyone has any idea how to attach them to the housing in a good way suggestions are very welcome

                  I like the '59 Cadillac tail lights but I thought they were too long for a bike. I cut mine down to where I thought they looked more proportional. Click image for larger version

                    I used a weld on top cap for iron railing to hold the lens and bolted it to the frame from the side with a hew screw with a hole drilled through the center for the wires. Another cool option would be to use a piston with the skirt faced off to the proper length instead of a top cap.

                            My new rear fender project is on!
                            and i also found a old (NOS) accelerator pedal for some yankee car that turned out to be a perfect brake pedal for road star

                              It has not been much progress this week.. I'm having a struggle with the exhaust, trying to get rid of all pores and small holes, grinding, welding, grinding, welding..
                              The mental brake down is close! There should be some kind of putty to use on metal that works when it's getting chromed...
                              I really don't have time for this.. The chrome company said it would take someting around 3-4 months to get it done and i have put my deadline to last April..
                              And everything else (exept welding and grinding that f***ing pipe) would be waay more fun to do, like getting the rear fender done, and a lot of small thing but nope, lets go spin that grinder..

                                I think you can chrome over yellow brazing if that is easier, on the mufflers only.

                              Thanks for the advice
                              But i aint using mufflers at all, and my problem goes all the way front to the engine
