this bike stuff's all very well, but what about the Shakespeare quote?? You know that's what I read this for ...! Besides, you have to be nice to be, I'm an invalid ;o)

If you look closely at the bottom of the front fender (mudguard) - you will see "Swift Like Lightening" in white gold leaf!

I came across a comment you made at Cyril Huze and followed you here. Love the blog, love the bike you built! I'm a long time Shovelhead owner, so anything shovelhead is right on with me. What you've done with this really impresses me. Fenders are like nothing I've ever seen before. Would love to feature it in my blog sometime.

As a former English teacher (art now) the Shakespeare shoutout is pretty cool, too.
