I have been asked to build a bike kit for another auction. This one will be for the guy who was manager of the Vets Club in Casselton. He passed away a month ago at the age of 38. Leaves a wife, and 2 kids. Here is the kit I will be ising.

I haven't built a bike kit in 30 tears so this should be interesting.

Got a good portion of the bike built this weekend. Primer is done, lots of sub-assemblies are done. Paint color will be HOK Green. He used to own a bar called T's Shamrock, so with this in mind I found these buttons, that are the right size for replacing a couple of the kit pieces. I put this one on the Belt Drive cover instead of the Maltese Cross emblem. I thought it gives it a more personal touch to the build.

The winning bid was $110.00. Not to bad for a kit I paid a $1.00 for on a raffle. People were amazed at the detail, and how it looked. Even some real Harley Riders made comments on how it looked.
