The Tin Shack Special

  Tin Shack restorations specializes in old Land Rover resto’s, but every now and then they take on a motorcycle project.  What i really find interesting about this build is that it reminds me of Land Rovers.  You wouldn’t think that would be possible, and yet there it is.  Maybe it’s the shape of the tail, which is reminiscent of Land Rover front fenders, I don’t know.  Anyways, it’s a great build!

Hi Greg,
I just came across this and thought you should know that you're the ONLY person that has made the connection between a Series Rover fender radius and the radius on the rear cowl of the Special. I did actually use an old Rover fender as a model for the wooden buck I made to form the alloy cowl.........good eye!!

Wow, I thought it was pretty obvious, but I guess not!
