I bought the bike as a badly done ugly chopper. I rebuilt it to my own taste. It was actually more work then when the donor would have been a standard xs.
The engine was shot, so I found a replacement and completely rebuild it. Made a lot of parts myself, most of them are powdercoated.
The tank is from a Sportster. I didn’t want the usual flames or scallops. So I came up with the gold stripes. All this was done with spraycans. I think it turned out nice.
It hasn’t been an easy build, far from it (hence the name The Bike). Everything that could go wrong, went wrong. The engine would not fit in the frame.
The electronic ignition was a nightmare so I changed everything back to points. Well the list is too long and boring.
But now all is good, she runs fine, and thanks to the rebuild engine I have to hang on for dear life when I open up the throttle.
Thanks for looking.
