I think this may just be retro enough.

I bought this frame a year or two ago and hav'nt got round to doing anything with it.

I think i now have enough bits to get this project started

Stay tuned and i'll put more pics up when i get a bit further on.

Very nice. Softails rock. Had a go on one of these once. Was quite flexy at the back, more than my softail of the time. But was also more comfy as aresult.

Interested to see it built up. What you going to build it up with?

If you're a fan of softails you're gonna love this bike. After picking up mine ~4yrs ago it quickly climbed it's way into the top 3 favorites in my stable.

You do want to be cautious of the BB / seat stay junctions on the Ti stay models as these are prone to failure a large percentage of the time. It's my understanding that this was due to Dekerf's initial use of a faulty epoxy compound (see bottom of page: http://www.geocities.co.jp/HeartLand-Ke ... kfstp.html). It is also my understanding that there have been zero issues with post-warranty repair frames.
