yo im an Australian needin some peoples advice on what are some possible outcomes for this old Skool Dragster. its been sitting in a dusty shed with about 5 others incomplete machines, mostly parts . i would like to keep the original look but would like to give to 70's style for this modern age. hit me with some ideas. at the moment cash flow is a bit tight so nothing too outragous. some parts are not attached but hoping to replace them all the same:

Brakes
chain guard

front mud guard on backwards

i found this picture a few months ago and this bike totaly reminds me of a dragster, not really stock since i think you would have to rake the front and use 26" springer and a 12" wheel. but its still cool and i thought id show you

hey man, that's the exact bike that i based my ride on. the frames are longer than pretty much everything else, if u throw on some springer forks, and some tidy rims/guards chrome etc with a gloss paintjob and perhaps pinstripes, u'd end up with a sweet ride. maybe even stick with the 3spd set up for that retro-cool style.

currently in Kerang, north/central Vic. i doubt u'd know it. often make tracks to wagga nsw, and very occasionally to canberra. you said you had a few of those frames around, interested in selling any? btw, the bike in the photo is one that got stolen, the pic in my avatar (flat green) is the one based on a MyerSpeed.
i reckon go retro-rat-pimped with the bike. high back sissy bar, seat dropped way low, tbar 3spd w/ extended shifter and 8ball or skull, springer forks, apehangers, whitewalls, and black with red and white pinstriping.
