What do you do with a pile of Motorcycle parts?
Posted by DocWatson on Monday, September 17, 2012 7:47 AM

A while ago I was given a box of 1/12 parts, as far as I could tell there was a Tamiya Honda street bike of some type (Not a lot of it there) and the other was a 1/12 Harley Davidson Springer, again not that much there. I have only ever built one bike before, a copy of my old 999 Ducati so this is a bit of a learning curve!

So I looked into what I could do with these parts and so far have come up with this........

Looks like you have a good start, can't wait to see where you take it.

Thanks JM, I picked up a 1/9 Knucklehead and have started on that (All I needed, another bloody project) it's getting a brass frame too. Again its held up while I look for some wider rear wheel/tyre combo!Confused
