Hand built cool

I always wanted to build my own bike.  I wanted something that I would never have to wash and if it fell over in the parking lot at work and got a little dent, Great a little character!  This is it, call it a rat-bobbor-chopper-ugly I dont care its mine. Picked it up in march of ’09, it was a total basket case.  Two bottom ends, one top, bare frame, and three buckets of parts.  The price was right and it had a title so I couldn’t say no.

I spent about 14 months piecing it together.  I dont have a garage just a small shed so most of the work was none on the tailgate of my truck or with the help of a buddy at his garage.  I rebuilt the motor, made the sissy bar, foot peg, battery box, and made the exhaust with the help of a friend with a welder(thanks Dave).  I had Kansas Kustoms do the hardtail. I did the tooling and cover the seat.

Skulls and crosses are way over done so I wanted something differant, something to show how much work went into the bike and how much I enjoyed building it. Thats how I came up with the design for the seat Hand Built Cool. Let me just finish by saying how much I enjoy this website.  I visit at least twice a day, just looking for the next bike to be posted.  Hopefully the next one will be mine.

    Outstanding bike. I’m interested to see what you are creating in 10 years. Awesome detail on the leather work and I like the pipes.
