"1965 IRONHEAD XLCH PROJECT" [BY 'CHRISLMITCHELL'] . . . . NORTY SPORTY FEVER TAKES HOLD . . . . IT'S A WET, SHITTY DAY FOR SCOOTIN, SO HERE I SIT SCOPING OUT COOL STUFF . . . . I'M NOT BIG ON PUTTING UP FOLKS TOYS AND THEN NITPICKING THE SHIT OUT OF IT BUT THERE'S A COUPLE OF CHANGES I'D MAKE TO THIS TIDY CHOP JOB . . . . BUT THERE'S A WHOLE BUNCH MORE ABOUT IT THAT I DIG HEAPS !!!
I really quite enjoy this chopperfied mid sixties sporty, nothing groundbreaking going on here, just some good old school derived styling cues, lovin the pipes especially, the profile of the stunning AEE seat against both the frame, rear guard and the grrrly bar is uber-cool, oil receptacle is bitchin, the mag is similarly stiffy enducing along with the narrowed springy front end . . . . not sure about the industrial strength HT leads or the lasso effect of the fuel line, the choice of bars tends to deflate the chubby a bit as well, see what I meant about nitpicking something that Chris L Mitchell has sunk all his blood, sweat and beers into, personal preference is a cold hearted bitch sometimes . . . . no offence intended bro, thanks for committing it to video posterity, more of life's rich tapestry.
