HARLEYS
Posted by James Croasdale on Monday, July 30, 2018 2:48 PM

Some neat Harley builds here. 

Not many places to find that on the model web.

Here is a couple of my model Harleys;

Circa 1970's Top Fuel Harley Hillclimber , from the 1/9 cop bike kit:

Bobber '47 from the Italeri WW 2 m/c kit:

Ask me anything you like about Harleys , Ive ridden , chopped ,fixed them , worked in chopper shops for most of my life.

Cool bikes. Very nice detailing in both bikes. I really like the hill climber. Those nitro powered machines are insane.

Ive got a hill climber project myself that I am preparing for, once I get the materials and methods for some of the details worked out.

Perfection is achieved not when there is nothing more to add, but when there is nothing left to take away.

No worries mate. You get what you pay for , an exquisite kit , a true multi-media and very very well done from top to bottom. 

I did manage to solder the frame together , not for the weak spirited but possible:

Thanks James,

I'm diggin all your work, in all scales. I love it when 1:1 bike builders build MC models.

Yes, I used several kits for this Knuckle:

Revell LA street chopper: engine,trans,tires,wheels,pipes, fender and back half of frame

Revell Chopped Hog: ft. half of frame,and handle bars

Revell Snap-kit: Springer (shortened 2 scale inches)

MPC Sportster tank

And the seat is an Esci 1/9 scale that I resin casted

 HOK candy orange over silver base with urethane clear. And I sandblast all my tires.

Looking forward to seeing more of your work.

Sorry guys about the bad photo.

Thanks 

Jim
