blue knuckle

i made & bought some new parts for the blue knuckle recently, so i thought an update was due. since this bike was photographed for the horse last week, i won't post a lot of pics. i showed the mid controls & light mount, but i also added hippy killer grips, pegs & shifter, mullin's trees & i think i have the first ripple pipes from Freedom Machinary/ACC.

harley blackline

i know the new dark custom
harley campaign is silly.
but, i really like this bike...
i always have a newer bike in my stall
for many reasons.
& maybe it's time to trade up the fatboy.
i didn't even like the fatboy when i bought it,
i customized into something i would ride.
but, this is a cool bike right out the gate.
it has the blacked out wheels (21 &16) my faves.
i love the burnt orange & black color.
the blk barrels & silver heads
remind me of my pan.
& the satin blk frame is perfect.
i would put a springer on it, a better seat, pipes
& probably change the handle bars.

mid pegs (mach 3)

these are the 3rd ones i've made for this bike.
i like the way these look now.
the first 2 worked fine,
but they didn't look so good.
i use bung king for my bungs,
cuz' i don't have a lathe to cut my own.
clear metal flake hippy killer pegs.
i wish they had blue urethane in stock,
i'd use those...

headlight mount

i know it's been awhile since i posted...
i've been working on the blue knuckle.
it's getting photographed next week,
so i thought i'd fix a couple things.
i'm putting the Mullin's Trees on
& i had to make a new headlight mount.

now off to chrome...
