Originally built by my buddy mr Magic, but in my fostercare for quite some time now!
For me it was the first ironhead I drove and never knew these things really fly! So when he told me he was thinking of selling it, I jumped on it straight away.
It's a totally different animal as a bigtwin. Lighter, narrower, faster and a totally different seating position all come to mind. Also the soft rear suspension make it a joy to drive, even over the cobblestones in the city. the new Avon tires help with fast cornering too

Also a lame attempt to imitate the picture that started mr Magic to build this bike
|Jacked up! to overcome every obstacle!|
|Expect the unexpected! |
Well, no-one in my hometown expects to see a pink and white sportster flying by, thats for sure
|Thumbs up for chrome drum brakes!|
|And a rare pic of me driving it! Thanks Ciro!|

Today a couple of nice and colorful tanks by the legendary pinstriper Dave Bell, who unfortunatly deceased in 2012. In pinstriping he was famous for the use of blending colors in a line and If you start googleing his name, the first stop is Irish Rich's place Applied Machete, where you can learn a bit more of the man. check it here
These tanks below were for sale on Ebay a while ago (and I think the mustang tank still is up for grabs)
|So nice combination of metalflakes, candies and striping|
|Nice ones! |
Ever try to make a perfect circle with a 2 inch long haired brush!?!
|And another mustang tank that was signed by David in 1977|
|I thought the eyeball was a Vondutch creation!?|
|the seller was aiming for the size of the damage, but it gives a nice clear view on the cobwebbing|
