Hayln – With this build I was shooting for something along the lines of low, aggressive and fast looking.
From the frame up almost everything is custom built by me. Frame, handlebars, pegs, front brake relocation, tail light mount, headlight mount, engine mounts, exhaust, key cylinder etc. Everything on this bike that isn’t raw steel is powdercoated (aside from the tank and fender). The engine was completely overhauled, got a nice bead blast and back together with upgraded clutch components, 2nd over pistons, some new bearings, Pamco ignition, HHB PMA and all stainless steel hardware. BS34 carbs were also overhauled with fresh Mikuni jetting, bead blasted and sporting new Uni pod filters. Exhaust was hand built and wrapped with DEI titanium header wrap. Continue Reading →

I got this old slut from a friend of mine who stripped the motor down to fix some oil leaks. He never put it back together and moved out of state to leave her for dead for a year. We worked out a deal and slapped that bitch on a trailer and the madness began. Its an “81”did the HHB PMA swap, and Pamco ignition, TC Bros Capacitor. Continue Reading →
Justin – From Townsville Queensland Australia, A few years in the making, having never built a bike before. I picked up a trailer load of frames and engines, forks wheels and parts from a friend and then searched the net for ideas. 2 deg rake, 2.5 inches of stretch lowers it nicely. Top end rebuild, engine ran a little smokey out of the milk crate I got it in.
