Rob’s chop

noid-2009_0817terrybirthday0004

Finally bought this chop from my mate Alan. He bought the bike in 1994 and has put about 3000 miles on it. The tank needs striping and a new paint job as i’m not very keen on Alan’s handpainted stars and stripes.The first things to go where the skull handlebar ends,mirror,headlight peak and a weird alarm. Next to go will be the front mudguard and all the stickers. Battery is going on charge tomorrow ,fresh petrol and it should start. Just need’s a new front tyre for the mot.noid-2009_0817terrybirthday0003

    It’s…uh…groovy. lol It’s great. It will look even better once you’ve made the changes you have planned.

    Curious as to the six-pointed stars. At first I thought there were seven points, making a “Captain Australia” bike… and not our American five-pointed stars either. It looks a little odd.

    Certainly not the worst Captain America copy I’ve seen, tho.

    Have fun!

    I love the american flag paint and this bike is not even in the USA huh?
    I am saluting as I type.
    No front brake, internal throttle, and jockey shift would make this sucker a real 60’s machine!
    Good luck!

    This XS should turn out sick. I love the long grinder look.
