Yes.
Speedo and horn, anyway. Turn signals, since 2013 too.

Both of my choppers are younger, both 2012. But I like the blinkers resp. the tail/brake light/trun signals - 3 in 1 combo. Looking good.

Here in my country, rules are different than in other countries in the EU. So to avoid having problems abroad, I prefer to have the turn signals on my bikes.
They are so small, you almost don't notice them anyway. So why not... sure some wiring work to do, but once done, it's done.

So finally finished the bike!

Looking so sweet, runs perfect, everything works. Really proud of this one. Especially when you see how it looked like when I picked it up.

And I really find it so cool to have made that WCC Villain gas tank fit on this one. This tank was laying in my garage for years, just waiting for the right project.

I'm not able to upload some photos today, but definitely going to post some here tomorrow.

It's pretty much the same here in the biggest shit hole state in the union, California...

Once you get it on the road you can take off what you like and go from there. I've been riding for many years using just a head light, tail light and brake light. Been stopped a few times two, LEO don't care unless your an asshole to them.

When I finished my BBC DA in 2006 I didn't have to take it to the CHP because of how the kit was sold.
I think it was sold as a complete bike. Of course I did take it to a local shop to have a second set of eyes check it over.

It's too bad about BBC, they really had a good thing going on. They used the best of the best parts in the bikes and kits.

So here we go, as promised, some photos of the finished bike.

On and fresh off the bench, still empty gas tank, before the first fire up - looking good!!!

I need to make another detail photo from the seating position. You can't see it on these photos, but really cool how this West Coast Choppers gas tank fits on this Big Bear Choppers bike. The top curve of the gas tank, on the top where the gas cap is, matches 100% the curve of the bottom part of the handlebar.

As mentioend in my previsous post, I'll post up some more detail photos of the bike.

But here's one I think is pretty cool. The USA petcock of PINGEL.

Love the flames on the gas tank and the gloss black paint in combination with the chrome.
Gloss black and chrome, I mean, it can't be more sexy than that

And finally two pics taken on the first ride with the bike out in the wild.

From the back...

I'm really proud how this bike turned out. When you get the parts together and all the stuff, sure there's always an idea about how it's going to look like.
But it was really, really a very, like little shocking moment in a positive way, how the bike finally looked like.
Really love this classic and simple, but typical chopper look of this one.

Hope the weather is good on weekend and I'll find some time to ride this thing.

Had some time riding the "new" bike on weekend. Was a lot of fun and really enjoyed it.
Feels like the combination of bars, pegs and seat does fit a little better to me on this one, compared to my other BBC Screamin Demon. Feels more comfortable, very cool riding position.

Took some little better photos - yes smart phone photos only, but upload size here is limited to 200 KB anyway...
