Diesel's Softtail

I while back I got the chance to design a bike based on HD's modern softail frame - one that I would like to have in my quiver. I had always wanted to take a stab at a softtail chassis with a lowered springer front end, 21" wheel up front, 16" out back, sans fender (a production bike no no) and a restyled headlamp nacelle that took the best elements of the traditional Hydra Glide and matched it up with springer guts. Here's what it came out like. By the way this is what I do for living - only for Ford motor company. Yes as far as I can tell drawing cars/bikes for a living is the best job in the world.
