      Crocodile's Build Bike Part Three

      Ok, folks we are now up to present day with the build, here is what I have been doing on her the past 2 days!

      I have started to get the sheet metal ready for paint, but first I shall mold the frame etc. and give her some really nice clean lines!

      I'm throwing in some extra's and here they are!
      Anybody need a little skull?

      See-ya all in the funny paper's!

                      Croc......those skulls are killa... !! You make them from Bondo and a mold??

                      I also notice you're running a 6-pot caliper on the front. Hows that feel? I'm thinking about going to one on my bike and making a 1/4" adaptor plate to hang it on.

                        Looking mighty fine there Croc. Thought about putting my build up but you fuggers would eat my ass alive. Ya it's a V-twin but no it ain't a HD (read cheaper). Still love the pics of you work area Croc.
                        There has to be one in every HERD and that's me.

Did the skulls in bone and tried to air brush em....:laughout....OK, y'all now know my weakest point, I suck at air brushing! :wtf
