Here's one of those fun projects that I love to do ;).

Never built a motorcycle kit before, so before Wal...... closed everything out, I got a few of the Revell kits. What beautiful kits these are. Tons of CHROME. " I LOVE CHROME"!!! :lol:.

Anyhow, you guys know how it goes. You open the box and your brain goes crazy and the "JUICES FLOW" - LOL :huh:

Well, after I cleaned up all the slobber :lol:, and started playing, this is what I ended up with.

I chopped the frame and re-shaped it. Kicked the forks out just a tad, widened the rear fender with that "FAT BOY" look, and built a seat for it. I shortened the exhausts and re-plated them with my chrome system. Added some chrome cable, some matching 30's on the rear, some Tamiya Slime-time-Lime :lol:, some clear, and some flames.

I got a few more of these and I'm just gonna hafta do this again ;)

That does indeed look like fun! I remember seeing so many of those 'chopper' kits reduced to real low prices before Uncle Wally stopped selling model kits and could kick myself for not grabbing a bunch of them!
