Flathead 1947 UL project in progress…

Still waiting for the fenders and some other parts from the painter, this pics show how far I’m in the project up to now. Probably this bike will be equipped with a sidecar, in any case I find one the other week. Again I got more work to do; as usual it looks great until you start work with it.

Earlier today I visited the well organised SWAP meet of Brotherhood MC Karlstad; there were lots of parts for old motorcycles. Whether you are building a bobber, chopper, rat bike, full dresser or just a customized bike, there was a great selection of parts for sale….Lot of individuals, mostly loyal Harley people show up, these bikers will be around for a long time!

Most of the parts are back from the painter, now I can see the project running again.
