The gas tank is welded out, pressure tested and touched up and the sealer coating on/in.

 

4 days to wait on that.

Then body filler and primer.

So....

Here is a question....

 

Is it a chopper?

A hot rod?

Or what is it?

 

If I were to go to a bike meet/event and wanted to put it in the show and shine.

What class would it fit in?

So a story from way back.

 

I went to a bike rally not far from home. Not a real big event. I decided to get in the show.

 

The trike looked like this.

Show choices were slim.

 

Trike.

But all that was store bought stuff with accessories.  And they were ignoring me anyway.

 

Bagger.

Just not a fit.

 

Antique.

It is a registered antique but it is not a restored original for sure. Not a fit.

 

A couple other that just was not a fit.

 

Full custom.

This seemed the ticket.

Only 4 entered.

 

A stock bike with lots of bolt on chrome bits.

 

A store bought chop. Probably a Big Dawg.

 

A girl with a self made with lots of smaller mods done by her own hand. Some twisted metal, welded links, cut fenders, rebuilt engine with mild internal mods, paint. All done by her. This in my eyes was the only other that qualified as "full custom"

 

Then me with handmade most everything. Just no shiny chrome or shiny paint.

 

Guess what....out of only 4 entries I did not place in the top 3.

Qualified judges are few and far between, especially ones that are handbuilt savy
