Will an airhead power two big ole fog lamps like that? I've been wanting to mount ONE on mine, but worried it would be too big of a current draw.

See? Now that makes sense. If you're not going to have rear turn signals, make the front ones twice (or more) as big.

The seats and sub frames are sold under the Von zetti brand on uk eBay. Von zetti are based on the outskirts of the town kevils work from. No idea if there's a link but it seems very likely.

Welcome back!

I always loved that '79 paint scheme. They nailed it with that one.

thanks. I saw that afterwards when someone pointed out those guys don't make the seats themselves. Those vonzeti seats look very nice but I don't like the way their seat frames have a thin fragile look to them. However it looks like you can adapt the seats to a modified BMW subframe like the british shop did. I spoke with Edgar who owns Flatracer yesterday and he tells me that he is about to put out a new smaller airhead solo seat as well. Its cool to see airheads getting all this new attention on the custom scene.
