Bar Hopper 1/8 Panhead

This is a parts box, scratch and resin build. I cut the top frame rail from the steering head to the back axle out of an old Revell kit then replaced it with a scratch built stock section. The belt drive is scratch built and reproduced in resin with a real ribbed rubber belt. The pipes are aluminum tube with flared ends. The springer front end works. I robbed it from a diecast, disassembled it, stripped the disk brakes off, painted it and adapted a 19 inch kit wheel. I took a front fender from a 1/8 Triumph, split it down the middle and widened it to cover the rear wheel. The 3.5 gallon gas tanks and jockey top tranny are modified repops in resin I made myself. The clutch pedal is a modified kit piece and the chain and shifter are all scratch built with a horned skull shift knob I robbed from one of my son's games. The seat is also scratch built. Hope you like it.
