It's a nice looking build.
I have seen several featherbed builds with Harley Sportster engines in them.
But that old flathead looks really nice in it.
I would ride it.

I'd ride it, but I certainly wouldn't own any Harley.  It's still a Harley.

Aah, but those old 50's Harleys had a panache these overweight pigs of today can't begin to match. My favorite was the 55ci KHK flathead the preceded the Sportster. But even the XLCH of the day weighed well under 475 lbs  as opposed to today's 883 that weighs over 550 ready to ride.
I've seen other Sportster powered featherbed framed bikes and they're generally quite nice looking. This flathead version looks great. Would I ride it? Hell, yes! Would I want to own it? Probably not. I've had my featherbed cafe racer. Quite uncomfortable. Or as the saying goes, Been there, Done that!

Elvis rode a 55.
  The flathead can run on today's crummy fuel. It's a great torquer. The B33 trans was one of many great ideas/executions. It looks so much better than a so many builds. Disc brake, modern rubber... I wonder what the ignition is?!
