    The bike is looking good. I don\'t like the sheet covering the engine, appears flimsy and cheap in the pics at least. Same with the \'cap\' covering the headlight. But good job guys and you built three motorcycles in 20 days! Wow...

    Brilliant! Superb rebuilt on a classic. Looks retro.
    Why don\'t you change the name of your bike to \'Iconic\'?

    Agree about the \'cap\', but it had to be there.. about the fairing, its in brush metal finish, you will like it if you see it in reality, gives a very raw character to the bike. and no we did not finish 3 bikes, this particular bike took 3 days.

    Thanks for the feedback

    Thanks Guys!
    This one bike was done in about 20 days with us working mostly on the weekends.

    IRONic is not the name of the bike, its what we call ourselves. Considering one of us cant ride a bike and the other is 65 years old.

    The fairing is made from 18 gauge aluminum and looks more solid in person. To be honest, the headlight cowl is a hit and miss for us too, but we wanted to contribute something new to the custom scene.
    Will be glad to answer any more questions.

    Props to our friend Kishor Krishnamoorthi for the great photos.

    Good job!
    I like the overall stance and the proportions. But feel like could have done more on the engine cowl. Feels thin, may be because of the sharp edges.

    Good job guys.
    Can you post more snaps, especially the right side of the bike? I'm more interested to know how did you managed with the rear brake pedals (since I'm working on a similar project, these inputs should help me to some extent)
