    Here's the project I have going. My inspiration comes from an 1908 Indian Torpedo (pictured Below). I love the old boardtrack motorcycle look and I'm hoping to somewhat pull it off. I'm working on a similar seat post design which is in the works hence the sissy bar. Also looking for a similar round silo tank to use. Any ideas?

    Just waiting for a few parts in the mail and this thing will be up and running!

    Got the seat post made and installed. I used an old stem and welded up a sleeve and piping. Came out great. Almost done!

    that's pretty cool lookin' so far.
    maybe you could use an old fire extinguisher for the torpedo tank ?

    Thanks for the feedback guys. I'm so close to being done! I'll make sure to get completed pics when it's ready. I'll also take some other pictures of the bike for now!

    I found an old mister, like the one that killed Brando in the Godfather. If you weld up the end caps it ends up being a 3'' tube...
