More Information:

  • My method of stretching frames is the highest of quality. No butt-joints and it’s bullet proof. It’s labor intensive to build, but is as strong as the original frame.
  • The custom seamless fuel tanks are fabricated in my own shop. A labor intensive process, but very unique.
  • The fuel tank straps are genuine stainless steel, fabricated and buffed to a chrome-like finish in my shop.
  • The 24” wide (tall) stainless steel bumper was fabricated in my shop.
  • Full tilting of the hood with my bumper.
  • The CB antenna is scale size.
  • The front fender and stepbox mudflaps are made in my shop.
  • The single long deck plate was fabricated in my shop.
  • The stainless steel rear cab cover was fabricated in my shop.
  • Notice that the lower exhaust elbows are truly cylindrical, not flattened out from bending.
