Welcome to the forum. Thanks for the pic, that's a beautiful bike! I love the paint job on the frame.

What bike was that originally? Looks sweet. Are the forks raked out more on that?

Welcome to the 4M!

Nice picture of the bike too. What you have done there was something I was thinking about doing to my previous cruiser which was a Titanium painted bike. I was considering leaving the tins as the OEM Titanium but paint the frame a gold color. I planned it would have taken a whole winters worth of work to do it (cuz I was going to blend every weld on the frame smooth). Had I seen this picture way back when, I'd have gone thru with it.
