I wasn't going to reply because I don't really have anything to add. But ... I have no words... WOW! The pics were worth the wait. Thank you. I said earlier in this thread that I'm not a big steampunk fan. And probably because most of it is over the top. This bike is beautiful. The pics are beautiful. Congratulations. I have to concur with a previous poster, that you sir are an artist. WOW!
Thanks all for the kind words, I'm pretty happy with the way she's turned out overall, some things still need changing (yep, naughty stock turn signals) but they will be tinkered with over time, rest assured!
Hi mate, I made them out of an old leather satchel I found at the tip. Pulled it to bits, cut it in half, reshaped them around the latches and glued them all back together. Dead easy. Give it a go, you've got nothing to lose if you find a cheap enough satchel!
Yep, went the 520 conversion kit from Todd Henning. Same teeth/length as stock. I never really rode it before the build as it was knackered, so I don't know what kind of difference it made, I just wanted a gold chain... bling!
