History
Bought July 2009, $400 rusted-solid basket case. Soaked the motor in diesel for 28 days, bashed the jugs off the crankcase, discovered the crank, rods and gearbox had very little wear. Proceeded to build it into a street-tracker.

Finished the bike Apr 2010 - roars like a monster and is a blast to ride - one of the best looking bikes in town (I'm partial). Edit - sold to an English man in Los Angeles - He loves it!

1968 Twin Leading Shoe front wheel.
Dunlop K81s 4.00x19 front 4.25x18 rear
Interior
T100CH5**** 500cc std size pistons. JRC 30mm carb. All stock - Pipes are 1.5" chrome 1/2 mile style w/ JC Whitney baffle-inserts (no mufflers). Plenty loud - bike sounds great : -)
Exterior
Nice little red tank split open, now I'm using some dumb, bare steel sportster tank - most everyone says it's cool, but I hate it.

The number plate on the left is a white plastic cutting board with some shiny metal-flake numbers on it.

Oiltank on right is off a T120.
Audio
Betor (made in Spain) forks on Ceriani triple-clamps.
Suspension
Bum-stop seat platform made from 10" PVC sewer pipe with 3/8 plywood seat-base. 1" High density foam rubber covered w/ black vinyl upholstery material - this bike was not built for comfort...
Wheel and Tire
Sparx ignition and charging
