    Well here's the fist look at my bike after the main paint is done.

    I am in the process of building an INDIAN beach cruizer.
    I have pics of my bike before at my website:

    www.flecksfortress.com

    If anyone wants to see those, I have been working on this project for about two years but after finishing the rear fender and new seat it kinda sat for maybe 9 months but now I am back at it full throtle and want to finish it soon.

    I am adding a 48v electric hub motor to the bike and lighting and the works this bike will be a real head turner when it is fully completed. . .

    BEFORE PIC:

    AFTER PAINT:

    You can see the speed controller is mounted under the seat that's for the hub motor. I also ordered some chrome forks to replace the black ones and they are also about 2 inches longer to give the front a little more sweep. I will post more pics as progress is made. . .

    Take Care All!

    That frame is begging for a monark springer. Nice job, one of the best.

    MORE PROGRESS

    Well,
    I have the front forks on now the new CHROME ones and
    it looks "a vardy nice" (Borat?)

    I also am finishing up the fabrication of the front fender it will have the side skirts like the rear and mounting that beutiful Indian head on there. after I removed an inch or so from the front fender and rewelded it (to fit between the forks) it was kinda narrow so I had to fill in the gaps for the Indian head with some bondo . . .

    And here's the full pic of the bike with the new forks and the 48V electric hub on the front. I painted the hub to match the bike

    LOOKS SWEET!!

    Dude, that is the ugliest f%$*&ing bike I have ever seen. You should buy a new bicycle and start over. Better luck next time.

    Jfleck,sweet ride!! Can you tell me where you got the indian decals? I'd like to get a set and tweak 'em to say Indian Princess to match the headbadge I made for my 1936 hawtnorne ratbike. I'm making a tank to fit between the twin toptubes.

    Psuggmog,

    I got the Indian Tank Decals on ebay for I think $10 for the pair

    Just type in "Indian tank decal" or "Motorcycle Tank Decal"

    somethin like that should get you in the right direction . . .
