New Member RC51/Indian Scout Project

New member and a 2000 RC51 owner. Thought you guys on this forum might like to see my project bike I am working on. It is the engine, gas tank and upper frame tubes from a 2015 Indian Scout with the running gear from a 2000 RC51. It will eventually have all aluminum bodywork that will roughly match the RC51 profile without hiding the frame pieces. I have machined the headstock, front frame pieces, rear frame pieces, swingarms and rear suspension pieces. I needed to make a new frame as I am matching the dimensions of the RC51 as close as I can and also converting it into a single shock rear linkage setup. It will be awhile until it is completely done but I wanted to get a picture up for you guys to see. I am trying to basically build an American RC51... Hope you guys like it.
