    It's just so damn cool, watching that thing come up it looks so lean and mean!

    What headlights will you be using, Cory? I'm a big fan of the Twolites myself, mounted as low as possible.

    Great work, as always! Keep it coming, as we can't get enough of it!

    Cheers, Eddie

    Something about the "simple" look of a traditional roadster that really lights the fire! Really nice job with this one!

    I just need to install the cables, but yes, it does function right now.



    I'm running some 682-C headlights, and the tops are below the top of the front tires.

    I tried to look back at the original posts but what are those rear wheels? New?

    Also, almost a shame you have to put a windshield on. Looks like it's ready for Harper Dry Lake!!!

    The rears are Rally America's 18x5 1/2" wheel (basically a '40 enlarged to an 18" and keeping the proportions. The fronts are original '40s.

    I do like the look of it now without the windshield, but I can't wait for that and the top to go on later.

    That thing just makes your heart go 'pitter-pat'. It is about as good as it gets right there!
