Found this... um... bike at Biker Bob's.

Owner had it modified at Detroit Choppers, and wanted BB to dyno it. However, it won't fit their dyno.

26" front wheel
raked trees
cut & raked neck (frame)
Fiberglass front fender that was glassed crooked and is flimsy as hell and rubbing the tire.
speaker lids of some kind on saddlebags that were horribly done, the bottom edges were rough as hell.
The paint was rough, because DC doesn't have a paint booth so I'm thinking over-spray.
Diamond cut heads
Ness adjustable apes
Lots of paint work
Was a whole frame up rebuild.


What do you guys think?

I don't think I've felt this ill to my stomach since the time I chugged a full cup of jager + cotton candy vodka on a bet. By the way, I don't recommend it, even if 50$ is ridding on it.

Matte yellow and black would be better choice for a CAT inspired bike.

As for the bike, I'll refer to the quote in Gas' sig.. "Why pay somebody else to fuck up your bike?"

I never really liked the huge front tire thing, its a fad that has taken way too long to run its course IMHO. Never been much for yellow either.

I think the RGs so better with the big front wheels. But that being said I think it has allot to do with the front fenders too. I prefer the big fenders that look stock, with the straight bottom edges.

I also think the Ness modular bars are an abomination. Apologies to anyone I've just insulted.

I can actually dig the ness bars. Super easy to internal wire, adjust the canter of the controls to your liking, and a utilitarian look.

I dont mind yellow, but like jesses James said "yellow is an international symbol for cowardice"
Maybe he sold his tricked out hayabusa to build the hd.

I think you're right about the tricked out busa... but the bike is going to florida... the owner works up here but lives in Florida most of the time.

That's what makes us unique. :)

I like em. I just switched from my 13" chromies to them, like GM said, SUUUUUPER easy, I pulled my others ran the wires and buttoned the whole thing back up in 3 hours! Talk about easy wire running. Course I had all the wiring and shit from the other bars...

I HATE that yellow bike however.

I seen a SG at a local watering hole that was yellow, but he broke it up tastefully with black, there was also an orange one done up the same way, with my bike and a buddies purple, it looked like Harley skittles... :lol:

Well, the grandmother had been sick, and we were soooo busy with her that mods had to wait... So, I didn't start till late March, and here I am now. Not out much thus far, but I'm sure down some miles and time... ugh. Hopefully I get my head yet this week, and get her slapped back together this weekend, or next week. Waiting my my tins as well. extended bags, speaker lids, side covers, rear fender, and some misc junk.
