550 motor

I got this bike as a rat bike (500). I bought a newer low mileage 550 motor and decided to cut down the frame and make it into a full chopper minus the hard tail cut off. All parts not needed and cleaned the frame down to bare metal, cleaned up all welds and painted it gloss black. I also taped and painted the motor after cleaning and drying. I installed it in the frame and started adding what has to be put back on for the build. Also not shown is a sissy bar I built out of stainless steel, that will be added on later. I hope you like pics.

I like the way you lowered the seat area, it looks clean and professional, not all hacked up. I'm currently working on an old Kawasaki. I love the way the old inline Fours look in a chopper! Will you be using the springer shown in the before picture? Looking forward to more pictures as you progress.
