It has a polished brass petcock. The rear fender is an old spare tire cover.

The seat is custom stitched, not just store bought. This is a really clean, really tight shovel.There is a lot of stainless and chrome hardware, clamps etc. Some of the chrome on the bike is old and shows wear and scratches. This bike has less than 100 miles on it. This bike has a clear title, not titled as a Harley. It is titled as a jailhouse chopper, they are a licensed manufacturer, this is not some home built backyard title, or assembled, or BS crap. I have the reserve set lower than the sum of the parts if you ordered all this and it was just laying in the floor in boxes. Please be serious about bidding. I will ship wherever you like as long as you chose a company you like. I prefer cash in person,or a certified check. I do not do paypal. Thanks for looking and good luck. I am also listing another bike and parts soon. Also the bike is for sell locally. and I may end the auction early."
