Found the tank with that goofy paint at a swap meet and started gathering parts around that. Used what I had laying around and and found on swap meets in the States and Sweden. I painted the frame with a brush to match the tank. Bike looks so low and compact because of the rake of the frame and that the frame has been jacked apart to be able to take the Panhead engine. Had to bash the rear valve cover to get the motor in the frame. Measured the garage door and made the sissy 4 inches shorter.
