I got my 51 pan fired up last Saturday and got her pretty well run in now at a little over 300 miles.
Thanks to ya'll who gave me advice along the way.
Here's what it looks like:

Billy, Johnny Roberts in Houston, TX did the seat for me. you send him a seat pan and he'll put any cover you want on it.

Great looking bike!!!! There's just something about the bobber style that is so clean and neat-looking. And you can do things like put disk brakes on it without worrying about compromising the look of a "stock" bike.
Good job.

51 Pan Bobber. I live in Dallas also. Shoot me an email at ron2ernst@swbell.net if you would like to meet up. I ride a 59flh in a 52 wishbone frame. it would be good to meet a few other like minded pan riders here in Dallas. Ron
