Big Twin on it's way to Bones Legacy

Dave Brackett shipped off Big Twin back to Las Vegas and Bones Legacy for the completion of the restoration.
Sad to see her go but I was honored to be able to see her once again after all these years. Dave is a master fabricator and I do believe he resurrected the mess that Big Twin had become.

Molly's paint on Big Twin

I took a number of pictures of the paint as it currently exists on Big Twin. Should it be repainted back to the original red (I hope!) this paint job will be lost. Notice the depth and shadowing in some areas and the layer of red in the shot where the paint has been ground down. Tons and tons of flake on this 5 wheeler.

AEE Choppers Big Twin and Kit Bike

I visited with Dave Brackett AEE Choppers famous designer/engineer and all around nice guy this weekend. He has completed his portion of the restoration of Big Twin for Bones Legacy of Las Vegas. He also had finished cleaning up some issues on my Kit Bike (which I picked up and brought home). I got in Big Twin and you can see it was not designed for someone my size! Great fun....enjoy the photos.....

Big Twin back on it's wheels

Dave Brackett has got AEE Choppers Big Twin back on it's wheels (well 3 of the 5). He is nearly done with his restoration of the mechanical portion of Big Twin. I will be with Dave Friday and get more pictures before it gets returned to Bones Legacy in Las Vegas for the completion of the restoration.
