I got the bike in a bunch of boxes.

Michael- Heres my latest build. This one came to me pretty rough. I got the bike in a bunch of boxes. All the hardware was missing on it. The frame looked like it was attacked by a grinder. It was a complete mess. The tank started out as a stock Honda tank. The side of it was dented in pretty bad but overall it had a cool shape so I started with that and removed the dent. I welded a backbone down the middle of the tank with some round bar.

I raised the front of the tank about 3 inches and made a new tunnel for it. I welded in crossovers in the rear, site gauge bungs and finally I closed up the stock filler and made a new one. The rear fender is from Barons and I took that and grafted it into a homemade battery box. The fender struts I made started out as a sweet little one piece deal. Continue Reading →

Chris chappell – This bike started as a roller, with parts in box’s, spiders in the engine and more corrosion than aluminum on the parts. It took hours of cleaning, blasting, polishing and painting to get it back to respectable condition. The final “polished, tuned, working” bike build time was around 2 months of straight work (literally every day). And a bit of tweaking here and there since. Continue Reading →
