A couple extra days off work and this ones done: The exhaust is made from a run of sprue bent with a heat gun and pin fit , kick stand that came with the kit would not hold it up , so made one from an old axle painted black. The mirror is made from thin plastic cut out with a paper punch and the bare metal face was cut out the same way and glued on.The top shield on the headlight is made from a press on fingernail and molded in. The springer is a 1/12th die-cast item , the handle bars are K & S brass tube, seat studs are small pin heads cut short. The cables are 20 gauge black and or silver wire , holding them to the frame are pieces on photo etch tree . The engine was de-chromed and painted silver with black wash in the fins. The tank is from another bike lowered and made wider up front. Color is Dupli-color medium metalic red with Dupli-color top coat clear.I noticed I forgot the clutch cable but I'm not writing this over again, I'll add it later. :D
