It became obvious that it was time to get back to doing a few
Tires & Tubes are OEM Topper tires, tubes, valve cores etc. The tank is a cut down Hummer as is the fender. The Ignition system is one found on the 62 Ranger so it needs no outside (frame mount) coil and wired to the switch accessory terminal as a ground. So in the OFF position the engine starts. The lights are set up as the light circuit on the "mag type" Hummers that used the other coil slot and powered all but the tail lamp (in our application we run ALL lights off that coil).
Tail & stop lamp are LED 12V license plate bolts from the 2005 HD accessories catalogue and all markings indicate Made in America. The housing is a bullet light from the late 50's early 60's and capped off with a military blackout Lens carrier with the two led's mounted in a Sportster front tube mounted reflector and fitted to the blackout lens area. Headlight (according to a HD dealer is off a 1980 Wide Glide. BUT - this item has NO markings - If anyone can dispute this as being a TRUE American made OEM HD light - please let me know! Lights wired through the switch in conventional manner. So the switch in effect controls two different and separate electrical systems.
The seat is originally a Wide Glide seat pan, cut and heat molded to the frame with original foam and cover cut to match the new pan design. Note logo in pictures.
