    Live in Miller, about 24 miles NW of Kearney...I know what you mean about feeling like there is nobody else out there that enjoys the same hobby as us.

    I owned an all original 68 Fury III, 2dr Hdtp with a 318 2 bbl...the engine was red...not turquoise or hemi orange. It was the best car I ever had, sure do miss her!

    My latest completion
    This bike is about 50% scratchbuilt, the scratchbuilt items include the frame, engine mounts, exhaust, foot pegs, kick stand and wheel pods made from plastic spoons. The engine is a Lycoming jet turbine from a Monogram 1/35? Bell Huey and the rest of the parts are from my parts box...I hope everyone enjoys!

    Tim,
    WOW! Your compliment honors me, and you sir are also no slouch in the bike building/kitbashing arena! I hope to take all new pics of all my bikes as Pats album only contains some of them and the "garage" background is my old one and I've rebuilt it and, I have several new bikes. At this time I have roughly 182 built bikes in my collection and I'm always looking to add more!
    Again, thanks for the compliment and intrest!

    Jon,
    No problem...after I removed the eyelet, I filled the hole with medium viscosity superglue and then filed/sanded until the "hole" was flush with the surrounding area. The seat was then painted with a Testors flat black paint pen: the other mods are as follows...gauges were added from 1/24 Maisto Harley Davidsons, the antenna from (2) 2000 FLTRSEI Screamin' Eagle Road Glides (also Maisto), the front brakes were picked out with a extra fine point sharpie, the rear boards and trunk locks and clasps were picked out with a fine point silver sharpie. I've had quite a stockpile of Maisto Harley parts as I used to modify them quite a bit in the past...here are most of them thanks to Pat Redmond for hosting my bike pics in his Fotki account... http://public.fotki.com/predmond/model_cars/smokin_ops-1/brian_nevitts_bikes/ ... I know these bikes are getting hard to find nowadays and most people won't have these parts just "laying around" but with ingenuity most modelers should be able to make the modifications I did with relative ease. I hope this has helped anyone who is trying to make an accurate police trike!

    Jon, these are very nice renditions...I know as I have two of them, in fact the pictures you posted are of one of them that I modified and posted over at Spotlight Hobbies. These trikes are only available at Hallmark Gold Crown stores and in very limited quanities so anyone that wants them should get them before they are all gone as they will not be produced again.
