“cut-weld”, “cut-weld”, “throw away” and “start over”
The bike took around 8 months to complete. It was built by longtime Indy bike builder Forrest “Whitey” Whitis, and myself. The motor and front end are 82 and the rest is all fabricated by Forrest. There are hours alone just spent on the forward controls and exhaust pipes, “cut-weld”, “cut-weld”, “throw away”, and “start over”. You know how it is, but after it was finished it was well worth all the time we spent on it.
Everything works perfect, sounds awesome, and rides beautiful. The paint was mixed by me and another good friend Rick Weaver. People say, It looks like 70’s Mopar color (Plumb Crazy). But “no” it is another 70’s color “Microdot Purple”.
