long awaited results

Eric Henninger – At the age of 16 I dreamed of turning my ’73 650 yamaha into the bike in this pic.  39 years and countless bikes of all sizes and brands I finally got there… ’78 motor, TC bros hardtail. 80’s aluminum rims with new tires, TC Bros. forward controls and control rods, neck bearings, brake pivot, rear fender and seat.  Lowbrow customs fuel tank. everything else came from old bikes, swap meets and dumpsters. small parts and brackets I fabricated in my basement.  everything that could be bead blasted and powder coated was. Small fortune spent in chrome acorn nuts.  90 hours labor over a 6 month period. In my opinion the bike is proportionately correct.  good lines and solid chopper profile. Its the look I was after. Hope you like it!
