Heres a Brat from the uk, she was purchased in stock form early this year. I couldn’t make up my mind what to do with her I’ve always been a Hardtail fan then I found this site…………..:o) The first time I saw Joe Mekolites Style I knew that was the road i would be taking.
She is a 1980 Model and i started to strip it down I put some shorter shocks on her and started cutting and welding. I got all the frame work done then It was the same old story I needed certain things making etc and the months were just flying by and nothing was getting done so I got Mal from Metal Malarkey to finish off all the things that I was struggling with.
He made a new battery box and we stuck to the stock cdi ignition sysyem. I looked into the PM route but here in the UK its a nightmare getting custom bits for these.
Anyway I hope you like her the only thing I might change this winter is the handle bars, might go with some small apes and I might put some padding on the seat.
Thanks for looking Let me know what you think. Lee Ferguson
