This bike has been posted on her by its prvious owner. I took on the bike by trading an Iron-Head chop I built a couple years ago. Now under my ownership the bike has gone through some changes…

When I got it the pipes needed replacing, carbs gone through, transmission gone through, some top end work and a few other things to finish it up (the original builder is a great guy). I did all that the bike needed and then some. New pipes, 23″ rim/tire, bew bars, lowered the front, new rear fender and struts. I’m sure there is more, anyways…

I love this bike it has been a ton of fun and now that it’s running like a beast….I plan on riding it like I stole it!

    looks good. dig the rear fender setup, fender from seven sins? there are those who are detractors of the rigid with a sportster tank, but this just goes to show there are infinite variations on the theme, same as any other style you choose to go with. like the knobby tires, too

    Nice bike.
    What brand/type of wheel spoke combo did you go with? Any issues mounting them to the frame?
    Thanks for sharing.

    Hey everyone thanks for the kind words. The pipes are JSC (JumpStreet Customs) chainsplitter pipes. The front wheel is a 23″ off a Honda dirt bike. I used the stock Honda hub and machined down the fron XS axle to accept it. The fender is the all brass boy from 7metal west. I own and operate JSC and we specialize in custom parts such as these pipes as well as our MULE stash tube handle bars. You can also see our pegs on the latest VIS build just above this post. We’ve been selling, building and shipping like crazy. Thanks again for the likes! Follow our progress at http://www.jumpstreetcustoms.com and http://www.jumpstreetcustoms.tumblr.com

    Thanks for the kind words everyone. The front wheel is a 23″ from a Honda DB. I machined down the stock axle to fit the Honda hub. The pipes are JSC chainsplitters from my company JumpStreet Customs. The fender is the all brass boy from 7metal west. This bike actually was just sold and I’ve got another on the lift that is about to go under surgery. Thanks again!

    Very Nice clean and cool with the big wheel up front.

  11. kade says:

    Is this a custom frame or an aftermarket hardtail? Thanks!

  12. Morgan says:

    That thing is beautiful.

  13. Jay Hetfield says:

    Whoever takes control of this one will certainly enjoy the vibes given off when tearing up the town.

    What bike did you source that front rim from? It gives the bike a bad ass look. I’m looking at 21 inches front and rear, but your bike is making me rethink that. Thanks

  16. Shane says:

    The KE125 dirtbike wheels are what I run there sweet lookin and have the little hub with a steel rim. The axle is not the same size tho and you would have to do some machine work. I also am not sure of the stock fork length between legs. But look into them!
