Front end nearing completion

Wheels polished, painted, pinstriped, lacquered and spoked ( by owner! the time scale to build the wheels didn't suit Tony and so armed with a built up wheel from us to copy he took all the components home and next day - he's not a man to let the grass grow under his feet - they were done!) Well done that man.

11.5 "stainless disc, ally 'y' bracket made to suit to carry 4 pot RST claliper

Meaty front tyre in a leaf spring front end

Looking good

Destiny Cycles 'Frontier' range of frames

Had our thinking caps on this morning, well Vic did, and he's decided that the new range of frames from Destiny is going to be called the 'Frontier' range.
The Sportster frame will be The 49-er, The old school 23' rake will be 'The Chief' and the Swedish chop style will be ' Goldrush'
So there you are.......!
There will be more variations on the theme as we think of them.
Photos coming soon of our first sale, a 'Chief' frame which will be fitted with an S&S KN-Kone 93 cu in Knuckle motor.......
