Motorcycle build

( transferred from other base)


One of the guys is building a motorcycle at work. He asked me to modify his rims. Pix to follow.

Guy built the frame and the tank from scratch. The chain tensioner is a skateboard wheel. The suicide shifter knob is off an old door. The sissy bar is all hand made

The guy had me mill off the front brake rotor (because front brakes are for sissies, I guess) and shave down the hubs so they'd fit between the forks. He fabricated the fork mounts even skinnier than whatever the standard is. He's getting it powder coated in a couple weeks, he just needs to make a few more doo-dads for the engine mounts.

If Harley made an airplane would you fly in it?

I might, but I wouldn't want to be responsible for cleaning up the oil puddles on the runway. ;)

Now he's putting an S&S 1200 in the thing. It's either going to boil the highway or look lie the ending scene from Easy Rider.
