Hi everybody. I've been working on this for about 2 years. Started as a scratch built front axle for a Big Deuce. Everything but the seat, steering wheel, body, quickchange, wheels and tires, and engine pieces are scratchbuilt out of brass, copper and aluminium. All done with files, razor saws and a bench vise. Probably the last pics before final paint, plumbing and assembly.

Hope you enjoy
