I picked up this bike about four years ago never owning or riding before. The first thing I set about acquiring was the 250mm tire on it currently, American chopper and a cousins recent wide tire build set my mind it that direction. This proved to be the thing that stopped me dead in my tracks for a period of about a year and a half.
I had the tire now I needed to build the bike around it. Things just got in my way, we have a lot of Harley people here but the metric crowd don’t chop that much. So not knowing a thing about chopping I turned to the media, not the best thing to do but I gained a really good grasp of what I liked and what I thought was the equivalent of a polished turd. Indian Larry became a big inspiration to me, the detail and the old 60’s style bike just appeal to me.
Now here is where I lose people, most people in my shoes realizing the style they like is nothing like what they had thought would sell the crazy expensive rear tire and pick up the cash to finish a sensible bobber. Sorry that an’t me. I like that big ass tire and I’ll have my version of Larry’s bikes. I’m gona do it my way and if it means getting on the road why should anyone care? I have been poking at this site for a bit now and in posting here I hope to gain feedback good and bad. You guys/girls don’t know me but I have found inspiration in your bikes. This site is my kind of bikes and for me that was hard to find. I haven’t seen a hole lot of builds on the site but hopefully my story fits, cheers.
