Re: Any other projects in your garage?

And now for something completely different...

a 1940s double-sided porcelain neon sign. Six feet long, 3 feet high. Fully restored and resting in a special-built crate waiting to be hung. Pictures don't do it justice.

Re: Any other projects in your garage?

I love that sign.

My mom and dad worked for Westinghouse at one time.

Re: Any other projects in your garage?

Here's one of my several projects, 1972 ironhead sportster with a pb grind cam, handmade forward controls & breather, 12" over early '40's 45 style springer with stock front wheel, rigid jockey shift with suicide clutch. It's been a long term build.

I'm not a big Harley fan, but that is one cool build. I really dig the vintage vibe and the home made parts, well done!

Re: Any other projects in your garage?

Here is the project that enabled me to get my '62 Fleetside... I did a Military Tribute bike to remember my Dad, who was a Vietnam Vet. After it was all done, I traded it for the C10.









This is my current Commuter Project (not my typical style of project, but I can't be driving a classic or muscle car 100 miles a day in rush hour traffic):

Nice improvement! And of course I think the ride height is perfect just as it sits!

Re: Any other projects in your garage?

I don't know a great deal about bikes, but I love the overall theme and the numerous details that make it interesting to study. Nice job.

Thanks! I tried to do something unique while still having a military theme.

Re: Any other projects in your garage?

I've got a couple to add...

1964 Dodge Dart Convertible - 273 with push-button transmission, custom paint & interior. Was my original car when I was 16 years old (and I'm now over 45 and stopped counting).

1974 International Scout II - 345 original motor (never rebuilt), AC, disc brakes, 4wd, custom paint & interior, running 33" tires.

Looks great bud! And I agree, about 1.5" down in the front would sit about perfect.
