Bottrop bound!

I wish I could say Born free bound, but no! Bottrop in Germany will have to do ;-)
I'd like to cruise the freshly finished fulldresser to Bottrop in a couple of hours, but if feels a bit wobbly in the front end, maybe it's because of the heavy load in the back! And the crap weather isn't going to help the handling either... So we'll see how it goes...

I've discovered this dresser set a couple of years ago at a Harley junkyard up north, and always wondered how it would've looked like back in the day. Well that time has arrived! What I got was the batwing, the toptrunk and the 2 saddlebags without lids. I've matched the tanks and 1 of the lids to the existing paint. The seat was found elsewhere but fits like a glove (and weighs a ton!!!)

From chopper to dresser!!

BOOYAHHH!  can't stop smiling when driving this barge!!!

Im not to keen on the exhaust set up like this, but I didn't have anything else that fits kickstart and mids... It should have dual pipes sticking out of the back, well, maybe later!

still have to match that left saddle bag lid, but in the mean time a white one will do just fine

"the Trone"!

this trunk is huuuge, I'll still have to wire up some old radio to those speakers... blasting some old soul music!

the ass end is really heavy and takes a day of work bolting it all on!

matched the paint to the fairing, including damage and scratches!
The cops are going to love the red spots!

This paint must have ben in done mid 70s in the States, the stickers are a more recent addition!
For the guys and gals just tuning into this blog, check the post below to see how this bike looked like before!
