I haven't built anything worth sharing in a while, but I finished the last details on this one today, and thought it might interest my overseas partners.
S&S (yes, same company who currently make high performance parts for Harley Davidson) built bikes in the late 70's through the early 80's. After speaking with the gentleman who brought this one my way, I know it was made prior to 1983, (that's when he bought it used in California), but that's all I know on the build date.
I found a few pics of it in it's original state, and will post them so you can see how far this bike has come.
It looks big, but fits me well as is (I'm 5' 9")...20" frame with a 22" top tube.
Hope you like how it turned out.
This is what it looked like when I got it:
And this is what it looked like prior to clean up (not by me):
