The beginnings of the "Beatnik Bandit" clone

I've been busy in the garage for the past few weeks working on the "Beatnik Bandit" clone. I have all my reference stuff spread out on the work bench, a Revell model kit, pics and notes I took when I was at a show with the real Bandit, and the hot rods by Ed Roth book! I want to get to a point, and then I will put it aside for a bit to work on the Knuckle chopper project. I want to get that on its two wheels and kickstand so I can roll it around. As you can see from the pics of me holding the model kit instructions up next to the rolling frame, its looks just like the plastic kit gang! I also will be doing some straight body work on my pal Poncho Bill's 57 Pontiac Starchief over the winter. Lots of good stuff guys, shoot me an e-mail, spritzbyfritz@aol.com, lets see what you guys have going on this winter. Get out in the garage and build something! FRITZ
