The method you used to mount the seat base and create the rear hoop is genius, well done man. This is one of my favorite cafe builds and by far the best Harley cafe I've seen.

i would have expected an 18 - better range of tyres, etc.  that's all.

Looking good man. You didn't do any cutting on the frame, correct?

Your bike looks great.  I think it has a early/mid 60's Cafe look to it, very classy, like a Triton, solid and powerful looking.

Dude that is silk purse from a sowís ear!
Very well done.

The equal wheel size is great, there is a feature posted of a CB450 with crazy large (21 I think) wheels front and back, they look very odd and Iím sure donít handle in that bike, your 19ís look spot on with the size of the HD motor.
