    Love everything but the headlight. I'm sorry but it looks like an alien or something.

    In this case you're just wrong.

    Here's a pic @Jesseladowski took. Needed some good pictures before the first round of voting.

    Some tank updates…

    Made some stainless closeoffs for the bottom of the tank to cover the mounts.



    I’ll leave the nitty gritty details to the imagination, but you can probably surmise what I did with these two pictures:





    Added a petcock clearance hole. My original plan was to run a prism one, it’s an awesome piece, but I decided that A) I needed reserve, and B) I needed a bottom 90 degree mount. The reserve ain’t much but pushing choppers sucks. Also started sanding:



    Still a few scratches and at this point, as well as some water spots:



    Then I started making the ROD for groove in the tank. Hand bent this with a torch. It isn’t welded on and can be removed for paint, unlike the one on the oil tank (going to have to mask that one)





    Also, I rounded the sharp back edge of the tank just a little bit:



    Then once that was all polished up I installed the parts to check it out. Happy with the results. Everything fits pretty good.





    Next I hacked up some 1936-37 rocker arms. Really, I just removed some fixturing areas and polished them up. More on this coming later:



    Then I shined up my knuckle rocker boxes a bit. I’ll quote my instagram here: “After the rocker arm massacre early this week, I just can't bring myself to polish these 77 year old rocker boxes mirror smooth. There is just so much history in these pits and scrapes and scratches, so they stay, I just polished over them. My cam cover is the same way. A perfect knucklehead is probably an S&S knucklehead.”:

    VOTING IS OPEN.






    There are three places to vote.

    1) The best first place to vote is at http://www.lowbrowcustoms.com/show-c...mp-voting-2017 here you can see all the bikes and read a bit about them, then choose a name and vote for it! My name is Christian Newman, the picture they used of my bike is pretty old.

    2) On instagram check out @show_class_mag and comment "vote" under the picture of my bike (my username is @ctnewman and the pic they used is old)

    3) This online poll is hosted by the Show Class. https://www.poll-maker.com/poll1009690x35F8B500-42

    Vote once in all three locations. It can be for me or for a competitor, I just appreciate any participation.
    Thanks!

    Thanks guys, just don't spam them with a million votes from the same device, I want it to be fair. I also want people to vote for what they like best, not just mine.

    (not here nutswingin') but any objective voter should be voting for you. Reading through the rest, and following this quietly for a while now... it's night and day. IMO Lawshe is the only one even close but I just don't like his style and lines.

    They put a crappy pic up for the voting. Is there a way to get them to change the pic to the latest one that you have with the engine installed?

    "Rake at 50 degrees" FUCK. YOU.

    A rigid CB750 Trike- Every word of that sentence makes me die inside.

    There are some talented people that need to go see the optometrist on that website.

    Can you redesign the pushrod tubes? Is there enough room to make a tube with the same type of design that you put into each frame tube?

    Pushrod tubes are actually on my list. It's sort of tough because they are really thin wall. If I have time I am going to look into it.
