    MY new air compressor

    Hello all,This is my first post so please feel free to correct me if i am doing anything wrong.Well here goes,This is not so much homemade as home assembled.I built this compressor from pieces and parts i collected over the past couple of years.When i got it all assembled and working everything was a different color and i was missing the air breather.To make a long story short this is how it turned out.Hope you all like it.THANKSMY new air compressor-044.jpg

    Thanks for a great first post Stan leiter! Really like the air filter cover and the Harley tank paint. Is that a sticker/decal of some kind or did you paint all of that? Nice build from bits and recycles!! Thanks for sharing. ~PJ

    Same here my friend...first bike was a 72 CB350. Nice job on the compressor....to bad you didn't have 2 Vtwin compressor head! I'd bet you could take an old iron barreled sportster and make one.
