As usual...sterling work Ron, the Harley triple trees (love those wide glides) with aluminum legs will look great, have you considered putting a couple of ball point pen springs in the lower leg tubes for working suspension?l:

Thnx Don, and yes I have thinking about the springs in the legs and I doint do that because its give nothing extra in my opinion to the model.

That's cool. There are a lot of parts in those old Revell cop bikes for kit bashing...I think they are great, and you can still find 'em cheap. The newer Harleys kits (the snap together ones) lack the detail of the older kits.

Thnx HFC.

Don I have three of those H-D`s kits laying allround, one is not complete gringrin

I`m still thinking of make a trike out of the other two kits but I doint know of the rear wheels are the same size as the frontwheel?

I must still find some information about that but that is also fun to do.

Long time that I have placed a update here 1sad1

Most of the paintwork is done and I started assembling the bike together.

As usual the metal parts are painted with AcladII the rest with Tamiya acryl.

That's always the way it works out , Doc. Whenever you can't afford it, they're a dime a dozen. Now when you can buy one, they're all gone. 2thud2

That's what happens Ron, at first you make a few changes to make your models look better and the next one has a few more changes and before you know it you are modifing just about every piece of the kit. It's hard to go back to just building box stock....you're hooked!

Nice!!
Hey, you're not going to cast that motor by any chance?? Now that I can afford to buy them I cant find one that wont cost the earth in postage from over seas! I will reimburse you for materials and a handsome sum for your trouble (I need two....)

I know what you mean by postage costing the earth,my first Big T kit came from Canada and cost $58US plus $68US postage with 12 weeks delivery to Australia.

That would be right, post the same thing twice. Doh!

$68 postage thats like $85-90 Australian! Crazy!!

Holy schmoley. It costs you guys more to get the durn things than they're worth. That's what I call dedicated modelers.
