Trent- My bike started life as a 79′ special. Pulled it out of a junk yard here in phoenix AZ looking like a pile of S*#t. Stock front end, headlight I got for free at a local swap meet, drag bars, Custom Chrome sporty tank, Larosa Alligator solo seat with 2″ scissor springs, custom made battery bock the electrical/ fake oil tank is actually heat ducting with two caps on each end.
A++++ to G&L choppers for making in my opinion the best hardtail you can buy, costs just a little more but is very worth it in quality and finish. Stock exhaust cut off what some would say waaaay to short. Still running the stock points an dual coil setup (bastards to get set just right) plan on upgrading to Pamco’s electric ignition when I get an extra $100, already have the dual output coil. Tailight sits on custom fabbed bracket that holds the plate as well got the tailight from a swap meet for $10 brand new in the box. Stock front and rear brakes with swap meet reseviors.
Used eye bolts screwed into the frame to run the brake line along the frame. Brand new Shinko tires (about $90 for both including shipping). Pegs if you haven’t guessed are Walmart specials for a bmx bike. All in all I like the way it looks, still trying to find a rear fender that will fit the contour of the tire without spending $150 on a new stamped one.
Paint is out of a rattle can. I ain’t no painter and I didn’t want a perfect paint job anyway. All totalled I probably got about $1500 – $2000 in her. Couldn’t be happier with the way it turned out.
Hope you all like it, I got most of my inspiration from this site and others like it.
I love the look of all your bikes from stock to cafe to bobbers. Keep it between the ditches!
