Most will dislike, few will hate. I think it has class, complete with cheesy 80's flames and all. At least there's nothing on it that says some bullshet about "live free", for there is no such thing.
 
I'm gonna ride it til next year and make a righteous old school chopper. I have a wizard I can tap for knowledge.
 
Dah duh, 81 XLH1000...

It has to be more comfortable for longer rides so that's a plus and you can live as free as they allow you. ;)  
 
For inspiration:

Are you going to use a springer front end for the chopper build ?

If I do, not right away. I'm going to reuse/rebuild as much of what's already there for now. Ride it around for a while, then do a full teardown and start fresh.

Progress has been slow and not steady, but the light at the end of the tunnel can now be seen.
