Spent the afternoon making a Headlight-Horn mount, used steel rivets to hold it together until welded.

Lowered the headlight 1", I did not think it looked right, put a horn on so I can run the wires (this horn will not be used), levers came in as did the seat.

Thanks Trek97,
                         My next build is bouncing around my head already and this one is far from done. Was thinking of boardtracker or street bike , if I go street I'll even go with carbide headlight and oil tail light. This is what I'm thinking of, from frame up. I like belt drive. For sure Pre-Cafe.

Back to the project in hand, carb mount done along with filter, played with an old belt as tank strap.

What is that drop-loop frame from? I have been looking for a frame like that for a boardtracker project for quite a long time.

Luugo86, 1910 Harley Davidson.   When I get to doing the next build I will start a new thread, will be doing my own nickle plating etc, no chrome (nickle carb, spokes, some hardware), will also brush paint and dip paint some parts as it was done back then.

Got the horn and high/low switches on the bars, wires run inside bars and exit between risers.
