    Thanks for the nice comments,, I like chrome,,but I also like  "anodized"  finishes,,so thats why I paint some of the bumpers,rims,,ect  for color contrast,

    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.

    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
