    I’m new to the HD/sportster/bobber scene . I fukin love this look it’s what I’m going for. Is that the stock tank and seat ? And where did you find the fender?

    Remarkable. I can't fathom how much it costs to make my sporty 72 look like this?

    To me, a spring loaded seat.would look more perfect with this build. And a medium size sissy bar and a kick starter. But I'm just imagining if it were mine. No complaints on this as is.

    Love the ride man. Couple questions if you can answer
    1. What rear sprocket is that?
    2. Did you just strip the tank and let it corrode naturally?

    • Rand
      Rand  4 years ago

      Stock rear sprocket
      Sprayed salt water to start rust
      Everything is stock but distressed
      I dont like shiny...........

    • rubicongero
      rubicongero 5 years ago

      not my bike, but i can tell you the rear sprocket is of a late model sportster (current sprocket), and the tank has be intentionally aged with a chemical process

    The vinegar stops the rust and protects the metal, you could shoot it with clear but that would change the look.

    One technique is to allow the tank to rust to the point you want it at, then coat it with vinegar, the vinegar will stop the rusting and it looks natural.
