GP Flyer4 20144 600x339

Greg Petschauer – GP Flyer – This is my first bike build. My goal was to make a clean simple bike that would be fun to ride. I started with a ragged out 81′ I got for $500 bucks. The frame is from Ardcore Choppers. I completely rebuilt the motor with a HughsHandbuilt rephased crank and cam. Just about everything in the motor is new, rods, pistons, valves etc…

I’m running a Hughs PMA and Pamco ignition. I made the majority of the components other than the basic frame, tank and fender. Including the exhaust, the foot controls, peg mounts, lacing new spokes in the wheels and the seat mechanism. I designed the mechanism to use a FOX Float mountain bike shock, which provides a great ride. The shock is fully adjustable and really smooths out he bumps. Another unique feature is that the bike is kick only and the battery is hidden in a compartment inside the starter. The rest of the electronics are hidden in the street rod coil cover along with the horn, which fit perfectly in the bottom.  Continue Reading →

Spencer   1975 XS650 Bobber4 2012 600x398

Spencer – Well this is my first build. I found the XS650 in a barn and bought it from the guy for $500. I cut the rear end off and welded a TC Bros. hard tail on. Lots of copper and brass. Internal clutch and throttle. Had to fab most everything in the spare room of my apartment. Many pieces were copper powdercoated and many have copper paint covering the powdercoat. I aged the copper using Louisiana hot sauce. If you put the sauce on the copper and wipe it off the copper will shine like a new penny but if you leave a thin layer on it will age or “patina” the copper over night.

Rollie   82 XS650

Rollie – This is my first motorcycle build. Bought a stock 1982 XS650 off craiglist. Did a big ass burnout and tore the bike down and began cutting it up. All the fab/paint work was done by myself and my buddy at Corrupt Customs helped me with the assembly while I’m overseas.

Thomas Minor – Denver survivor long chop - survivor bike i found last summer and has since gone through complete resurrection.

Well I got the bike this past winter and have been resurrecting with the help of some friends. When I got the bike you could tell someone took the time back in the day to build a nice little bike, and then there where some signs of someone else getting ahold of the bike and trying to “modernize” it. Carbs where shot, exhaust was hacksawed too short, OCC wack forward controls welded on through the paint…..the list goes on, you’ve all seen a meth head bike before I’m sure.  Continue Reading →
