Ericka AKA "411" 1987 Honda 450. Finished!!!

After weeks of this bike fighting me tooth and nail she fired up and is ready for the road.  The owner is only 4' 11" and the bike looks prefect for her.  All the tins are powder coated a rat rod green.  The color was a mistake but turned out sick.  The rims are powder coated cream with a 21 inch front rim.   The Tank was custom made from a CB750a.  The electrical box was made from the bikes stock exhaust and the fender was a sweet find from the LBC swap meet.  Most of the Part where recycled from the stock bike, I just made the stock part cooler.  enjoy Ericka.. FYI tell your dad your name is misspelled.

1972 Harley Iron Head

I picked up this bike about 2 months ago and its been sitting on the lift waiting for me to work on it.  I had a couple customers bike going on when I picked it up.  I would stare at this bike thinking what direction I want to go with it, old school, new school, no school, trendy sportster tank look.  I started on the tank, why buy when you can make your own.  Then everything started to come together.  I  believe a bike is born not made.  I still have a lot of parts to make and still have a lot of staring to do.
