this wouldn't be a hardtopped Buick would it?
It won at Paso Robles and Sacramento Autorama and couple of other shows. It's also been in some mags and on the net. The back half of both front fenders are Buick.I know that car, for some reason I thought it was a Buick. ha ha..maybe the port holes threw me off.
My buddy Curtis and I enter the bicycle portion of the Sacramento Autorama almost every year since 2010. This year we decided to do a TRM convertible tank on a 48 Monark Deluxe. I figured I wouldn't ruffle to many feathers because it was a girlie.
I went through the standard amount of parts switch/mock ups,...lots.
We ended up dropping the skirts. We thought they interrupted the lines.
Now the fun stuff. Curtis is a very talented fabricator, he did all the fab work. He's great to work with. "Hey Curtis lets put a bracket on the chainstay so we don't have to use a strap", "okay".
We cut up a repo horn tank to place under the TRM tank
Removed the bottom support bar for a cleaner look.
