You are correct sir!,,I didnt have the panhead mtr for it,,wish I had,,so I just went w/the knucklehd that came w/the kit,,and if you look really close at the movie bike,,the rake is less,,meaning the front steering section is lower than this bike, and the frame on the movie bike is a stock sportster style or some variant , not a custom style like this one,I think the seat is just a bit different,also. And the kit came with a duel carb setup,,the movie bike has a single carb,,so I used a carb from an old 1/8 revell triumph mtr modified the intake setup ,,and used a 1/25th air cleaner from a car for the round air cleaner But I traded all those features being different ,,for at least having a "replica" of the iconic bike,,and when I look at it w/the springer front end,,it looks kindof cool in this style,,,hope that helps. Thanks for viewing,,all the best! S
Pinto's?? Love those cars,,wish I had some for ya. Ive owned a least 4 of those 1:1 cars,,,the pinto kits are hard to find for sure,,all Ive seen are the resin FC bodys,,w/no chassis/engine,,not too many stock kits,, but if I do find something ,,Ill post back. Good luck on your search,,,S
Why thanks for the nice comments,,theres so many great builds here,,hard to keep up with them all. Just a bit of background on this kit,,I was going to do it full out Pro-street,,but just decided to do a nice street car instead,,I would have had to chop up the bed +rear fender wells to do full out PS,,ect,,ect,,didnt want to mess up the nice bed,wheel wells in the back. Used Tamiya tapes,,+ testors QD enamels for 2 tone work. Thanks for looking,,all the best. S.
Looks great! Ive wanted one of these for quite a while,,havent seen too many out there,,nice job. Wonder what would happen if it were turned into a dragster,,or some type of bizzare fuel altered? With a giant wing on the back? I can only dream I guess,,nice job there
