Says he who just built his own with far less equipment and less experience!

Traditional way of building using round stock and and drilled trees is simpler and easier to keep everything square. If anyone is contemplating using oval legs, there's far more measuring to keep everything square and welding one side of a tube bends the tube slightly just to make things more interesting!

Great plan and excellent execution. Your years of thinking and planning really show with this unique and awesome build!
Guess you must have seen AEE's attempt at using dual shocks to build a springer; saw it in a Street Choppers magazine back in the mid '70s. I have images of the 3-page article but don't have the link so will post them on the CA facebook page.
