For the past year I followed Crazy Jerry's build of a abandoned project from an unknown builder on the NGW club. What was interesting him was the 45 degree rake of the front fork and the leaf spring at the back. He built his own petrol tank and added an old coffe pot to hast the headlight. Two shower strainers were used to protect his hooters and a gear lever was used for a switch.

Further additions was a turpentine bottle for the coolent reservoir and vintage Wisconsin salt and pepper pots for the indicators. Vintage dinner forks is used to hold the mirrors. The cups from an egg streamer is used to hold the instruments and the tops of the salt and pepper pots to round it off.Some Datsun 280Z strips came in handy.A lever is all so fitted to operate a foot operated tractor starter switch.

I'll post pics of the photoshoot tomorrow

That's a great build. Love all the imaginative things that go into building a bike like this. :mrgreen:
