Spiderwebs -- a custom touch emanating from the 1950s -- highlight Fiend's fender portholes. Note the STOP light; this, too, is a vintage item.

The Harley-Davidson Panhead engine hails from the 1950s, but received modern internal components on Fiend -- and 93 cubic inches of displacement. Morris magneto beside the front cylinder provides spark, 1950s style.
