When Big D Speed Shop called me to find out if could wire a Harley for them my exact words were “do you have a diagram? if you have the wiring diagram I can definitely figure it out”. a few short weeks later I would be visiting their shop to look at this bike. A few weeks after that they dropped it off at my shop with the keys. I have learned that my process on builds is to study what exists about the donor bike. In this case the rear of the frame had already been modified a bit to be squared at the back with a slight rise. I took a few measurements and cues from what was on my lift and began to remake it in the image of what was in my head. I cut away what was without purpose and simplified what was complicated. Sean Starr provided it with the raw patina and paint and at this end of the project I think it looks great.
