High Rolling Harley

Grabbed one of the 1/12th Revell bikes from my "stache". Assorted resin parts, i.e. big fuel tank, electricals, hand grips and carb's from Norm at Replicas & Miniatures of Maryland. Plus tires and wheels from the bike spare parts box.
Tweeked the frame, removing some of the "rake" out of the front fork, rebuilt the front forks using aluminum tubing, fabricated the seat and added wires/cables.
more photos comin' in follow up post...
thanx for lookin'

Curt, that's a nice model. You put lots of great details on it, and I like the look. It almost looks like many of the bikes I see in Daytona. A nice bike, and also a daily driver. Thanks for the eye candy, chap.
nobody's gonna mistake it for an OCC or West Coast Chopper creation...
I like bikes that are daily drivers and look to be ride-able
these Revell bikes are fun to play with

Nice, nice bike!! Looks just like it should, this one is made for riding, the tire/wheel combo looks really good too, you did a great job with this one. Me, I love bikes that look like they are made for riding instead of polishing. Great looking bike, thanks for posting.
