So for a few years now ive been kicking around the idea of building a bike for my dad and a few months age i hammered out a deal with a friend and fellow member bbillington for a titan witch was my father wepon of choice when i was a kid. After talking to my mother i found out where my dads old bike ended up and after some door knocking i scored his old frame and title. The plan is a complete by the numbers resto and ill give it to dad on a birthday fathersday christmas or a tuesday whatever the days not important.
here is the tank a covers in the correct blue
here is the freshly refinished frame with a shinned up front end more to come and a huge thanks goes out to bbillington and teazer for help to get me to this point

Thats awesome you found your dads old frame.
watching the build, and in the end, a picture of your dad when you give him the bike would be great.

I see "#1 son" in your furture :D

Awesome find Brad. Ive been looking for a way to try and dig up my dads old 305 scrambler without him knowing. I don't think that the DMV will give out any records so that I can track down a vin on it and my mom is supposed to be looking for any record of it in the house. From what he told me, when they got married all they had was that motorcycle. Anyway enough about that. I think that this will be epic, what better way to say thanks for embedding the passion of motorcycles in us. And definitely takes some pics of the unveiling.

Nice brad, but if you loved your dad you'd have bought him a Honda. Maybe a cb750...

Re: For the old man

when you give it to him you should ride up wearing those ringer socks and cutoff jean shorts. That would be classic.
