My Franks

The regular one I have, has old school flame stitching on one of the seats and luckily came with the 12" sissy bar instead of the other 9" one that was available.  This one was meant for a big twin Harley, but someone along the line "modified" and fucked it up a little to mount it on a Sportster, so Ken is currently bringing this beauty back to its original glory so I can get going on my shovel's winter makeover.




This one is my prismic Crazy Frank, the wilder angular version of these self-supporting fenders.  I'm guessing these didn't sell very well because I have never even seen a picture of one, other than the original ads.  Somehow the stars aligned and I managed to score this ultra-rare piece of chopper history.  I'm in the process of sanding and fixing up the previous molding attempt on it.  These came with all the welds exposed and required some molding to give them a smooth look before priming and painting. Frank on!
