Esmeralda, The twinkie killer.....

 I started work on my bike, I dont want to change the frame on this bike because I know this bikes history.
Metal fab..... do you know what here is made?


 The softail is centerd in the frame jig for chopping.....
 Tadaaa, just as in the TV-show. OK back to real life.... No fiction here.
I hardtailed this 1999 Softail for a friend who wanted to use as much of the original parts as possible.
Like driveline, brakes, oiltank and so on.
 I made an seat pan for him and instaled the rear fender from Paucho. Some small brackets for the oiltank and so on.
I also made brackets for the rear brake. This is going to be an nice fast riding bike.

A real death trap in the making

I were visiting my friend today, he showd me this 10" wide rim with an original spool, that has been modified with SMALLER bearings and no "centertube", IF YOU DONT KNOW WHAT YOU ARE DOING, ASK SOME ONE THAT KNOWS.
