Hey all,

So here it is. The beginning of my first motorcycle build. A 1934 Harley Davidson VLD.

Here is what I saw when I bought it:

And here it is in my garage:


Managed to pick up this lovely bit of metal, flaking paint, and rust recently. Was found in a chicken coop of all places. Overall pretty solid rolling chassis. Don't see any obvious problems so far. Heck, the transmission even moves freely and shifts crisply. Will be interesting what the inside looks like once I pull it out and open it up.

Will update as I go. Working on the motor currently which didn't come with this rolling chassis. But the rolling chassis is a 1934 which matches my motor. ^_^v Has the dents and everything for the rear fender. :P
