Jay said...

agreed

ok kyle said...

it is hard to make them look good but when you do its the shit

grant said...

OK Kyle, it is NOT hard to make them look good! Simple shave the cowbell mounts metal finish the trees, add chrome, at least 4-over tubes, shaved lowers, and possibly boots or no boots, no seal boots, done! if you really want to set it off buy a '49-57 set that don't have the gay rubber bushings in the top tree. Easy breezy, cats out of the bag. Narrowglides are like assholes, so are any stock length frontends!

Jay said...

haha fuck stock length, im tryin to get some 8"over tubes for a 33.4mm

It just depends on the look you're going for. I'd say its harder to find a stock length front end pre-1970 because Fingers and the chopper crowd extended them all in the 70's. Just like finding a frame with sidecar loops and centerstand mounts...

I like stock front ends because they work better, I had a 24 over Panhead that was a mother fucker to ride... just sayin...
