Weston – This was my first bike, and got it a couple of years ago. Just rode it around wrenching on it for a while until last fall I bought a few other junkers to ride while I worked on this.

Nick- After building/customising a couple of bobbers for a friend I got the bug and have made/customised two for my mate and I. The white one is Spike’s and we found it on eBay in Birmingham. So, I collected it and brought it back to Cambridge and it wasn’t too bad.

I made the side panels and number plate bracket, spent a while with the grinder and the welder and made the high-level shot gun pipes. The seat pan is from Fenland Choppers and was padded and covered by HideOut Leather. I got a mate to re-wire the bike and with a bit of spit and polish we think it looks pretty good!

Stock front end, headlight I got for free at a local swap meet, drag bars, Custom Chrome sporty tank, Larosa Alligator solo seat with 2″ scissor springs, custom made battery bock the electrical/ fake oil tank is actually heat ducting with two caps on each end.
