High Rolling Harley

Posted · Report post

Watching John Teresi build his "Pancho Villa Bagger" inspired me to build another bike.

Grabbed one of the 1/12th Revell bikes from my "stache". Assorted resin parts, i.e. big fuel tank, electricals, hand grips and carb's from Norm at Replicas & Miniatures of Maryland. Plus tires and wheels from the bike spare parts box.

Tweeked the frame, removing some of the "rake" out of the front fork, rebuilt the front forks using aluminum tubing, fabricated the seat and added wires/cables.

Curt, that's a nice model. You put lots of great details on it, and I like the look. It almost looks like many of the bikes I see in Daytona. A nice bike, and also a daily driver. Thanks for the eye candy, chap.

thanx Virgil

nobody's gonna mistake it for an OCC or West Coast Chopper creation...

I like bikes that are daily drivers and look to be ride-able

these Revell bikes are fun to play with

They sure are, buddy. And have a few of those Revell kits in stock never hurts because you never know when you will see something and suddenly inspiration strikes!

Curt, another outstanding build. All business and no bling, which is my idea of great looking bike. You seem to strike a perfect balance in adding the 'just right' amount of detailing. I hope this one ends up being a keeper for you.

Hey Curt,

Nice, nice bike!! Looks just like it should, this one is made for riding, the tire/wheel combo looks really good too, you did a great job with this one. Me, I love bikes that look like they are made for riding instead of polishing. Great looking bike, thanks for posting.

Nice work. I too like the way you brought that front wheel back, and the exhaust wrap, and the fat front tire, and.....oh, I like it all!

Nice build! I like the "real" look it has, a result of the great details and the color choices. Motorcycles seem to bring out the best in great builders - maybe it's got something to do with the larger scale combined with a smaller subject. Anyway ... cooool!
