    well ive finally gone & done it! me & the dogs & augidog got the old higgins motorized today! it was a grand time of tinkering fidgitry & it slowly came to life! what a flash to my past & the many hours spent with such projects, its odd i used to cuss a lot & throw things but now i find my self slowing down as to catch the finer points ect. & is really a theraputic zen thing!! heres a few evolution shots of the project. mind you this is a temporary set up just to get her rolling! i have many mods & goodies planned for this bike! peewee herman eat your heart out!

    I agree with AZ/Bill put the colts back on, only mount them on the handle bars pointing forward. Nice to have good friends huh Wavy? Looks great.

    Forget the Colts. Bladder the OE "tank" instead... tossing that bit-O-vintage-style is a shame. The bike in it's original config is so Buck Rogers it's beautiful!

    Whatever... the bike is classic either way. Nice to have it up and running!

    buck rogers!! i love it!! buck was mentioned yesterday, along with mr. peabody & sherman, flash gordon, comic books in general, old cadillacs, etc...:D

    don't y'all fret none 'bout them 6-shooters, they will return to take their place amongst all the other goodies that ol' "70" has to lug around...

    i won't spoil any surprises, but let's just say wavy' means it when he says pee-wee would be jealous ;) :lol::lol:

    wavy...it was great fun doing this install with you...we sure did rescue one miserably rainy day in fine style :cool:
