I've been looking for a bike to ride the local beach paths, downtown parks & Carlsbad bar runs along side the "Little Lady" for a year now. Jeff @ Church of Choppers posted this hand built bike a few weeks back & when I saw the photos I thought that's it, to top it off she was for sale.
After a long couple of days Everything is finally headed to paint and plate.
I've never been a fan of most "chopper" kick stands so wanted to stick with the HD style. There's something about the clunky over engineered mechanics of it that I like.
However the mount was wrecked and then wrecked even more when someone did a so called repair. So most of yesterday afternoon was spent puzzling it back together and I figured since it is the kick stand mount I'd beef it up a bit.
I ton of clean up was done on the frame but there's also 50 years of character that I left alone.
