Got this fun puppy in a trade.

( Thanks Tom aka Modlbldr )

 

Anyhoo....this is what I got.

Added styrene to the back tire in order to make it a slick.

RSCN3785-vi.jpg

 

Made a paper clip sissybar with backrest.

Bent some tubes to make the fenders.

Thinned out the banana seat and added a seat post mount.

This pix shows the paperclip chopper forks.

Head lite is a tach with Micro Kristal Klear.

Some mock up photos....

The chopper is a companion piece for a '63 Ford Galaxie on my bench.

 

Thanks for looking...

Thanks y'all

Totally agree on the wheels.

A little more sanding and then on to primer and paint.
