tweaker

I put my Pan Glide front end on the shovel frame this evening.. afterward It still looked off. The fork was still twisted to the left. The wheel in the photo should have the center of the tire around where the white line comes down the photo. The frame-headtube got twisted when I hit the car.
It's hard to take a photo of alignment with perspective being distorted and everything with a lens
but you can get the idea. This is worse than I originally thought. Talk about a short life span. I've hardly had this bike a little over a month.

Good news is my Panhead, head and cylinder is ready to go back on the bike.. so I can put that back together again.

I wouldve been really bummed if it was the offset springer and wishbone frame that got damaged. The springer took me forever to restore. It was basically just the top tree and stem and part of the legs when I got it. Had to remake the legs gussets,brake mount.

Yee Haa, a perfect flat tracker for the outlaw class.
