    Tell you what, when you're done and if Colby doesn't like it, I may know someone who would be interested! Just trying to help, Carp.

    I was wondering if he would add any bling to the engine. Gotta impress the friends right.

    He's a hood down kinda kid. He's adding a Caddy air cleaner with striping. That's about it.

    He learned how to peck out dents in stainless and how to buff them back. Came out pretty good, huh?

    Love it. Great color combo, (including the black of the tires), and simplicity. Good to see the hard work paying off.

    Thanks guys, it’s far from perfect, but he can take it up a notch when gets older. High school parking lots are not very forgiving.

    Pushed the Okie Apache outside for a few photos. Still have a few things to finish up. He wanted to post some update pics. I like the way it sits. No blocks or bags.

    Idea... put some cut up bicycle inner tubes on the tailgate chains to stop scratching the nice paint job.

    I get a warm fuzzy feeling when I see this thread pop backup with updates. Three cheers to you and Grampa for taking him under your wings. And I think little sister owes you both a bunch of steak dinners for being a wonderful father and loving big brother ! lol Larry

    Your local bike shop will usually have "roadie" inner tubes in their trash they'll give you if you ask nicely. It's what I use because they fit tightly, look better than the larger ones from mountain bikes. The UV eats them up so plan to replace often but they fit tight and work great.
