Well I jus found this thread and am dying to see any new pics or progress you have into the bike. No matter what the rest of CC says, I am with you on the fat back tire. I won't do one on my first bike, but my second will be my dream bike (insert big tire on the back)
I got's me a XS750 that is two months younger then I am. Me....5/78 - Her 7/78 going to be a solid strut hardtail conversion budget chopper from hell.
And I quote SJ Bikesaws
"Remember that the true American hot rod scene was never started with a credit card and a catalog or the internet. Just a bunch of poor boys trying to get pu$$y and keep up with the style of the rich boys."
