I have often sat down and pondered where my inspiration comes from. I search the net and blogs for ideas but sometimes when I get to the shop I have a hard time remembering the look I am after when building a bike. Recently, as most of ya know, I picked up an 80 Kawasaki 750 LTD to cut up. I've been kickin the idea around that I wanted to keep it a soft tail style bike (mainly cause I'm getting older and my back isn't what it use to be) but the more I look at the frame and what I want to achieve, I'm drawn back to the hard tail concept for the visual ascetics.
What am I gonna do? Only the good Lord knows for sure but I'm leaning more and more to a true hard tail with some type of spring or shock mounted seat. The front end is definitely getting goosed necked and raked, There's no doubt bout that. I think I'm gonna stretch the back bone a few inches and the double down tubes are gonna meet in the middle by the lower motor mounts and then will be joined to the neck with a single down tube. The wheels will probably remain stock as well as the frt forks for now. Money dictates what I'll be able to do.For those who have missed what the bike loooked like when I got it here ya go......
