Thanks guys.
Mick I may paint it later. I like the bare metal look but it gets old trying to keep the rust away.

Here is some pictures of the progress that I have made.

I can't weld or build big engines like you do, but if I could, I would replicate the Excelsior below. I think it's

Hi
Following this thread with great interest as a biker from way back.
I bet that OKTomT is as pleased as a dog with a bellyful of pee being turned loose in a forest.
Bike looks and sounds great.

Wonderful vision and skills demonstrated an inspiration for all modelers 
Thanks
Eric
