Default Angry Monkey Motorcycles LONG bike Build thread

Wait?! What!? A long bike from Angry Monkey Motorcycles? Say it isn't so! Yep, it is for real, and it is also a "unit" bike to boot. This client build has been started for over a year but because of frame delays, outside of my realm of control, it is only now starting in earnest.

The plan is the client flying in, then riding this puppy out to Sturgis THIS June. Ambitious? Yes. Possible? Yes. That is, IF everything else falls into place on time. All I can tell you for sure is that I'm going to give it my best effort. So buckle up and enjoy the ride

This is the list of basics features on this bike:
Fully polished 650 bumped to 750 Engine built by Dan at Franz and Grubb
Sugar bear 18" over springer with #2 rockers,
46* degree rake, twin down-tubes, goose-necked, full frame, by Speed Devices
16" rear wheel w/firestone vintage tire,
21" front wheel w/Speedmaster tire and small disc brake (GASP!),
vertical oil tank
AMM saddle.
The rest will have to be figured out as we go, since this is my first Choppa'

Here are a few of the parts collected so far...

Donor bike: "tagged" frame, which will be sold off. Titled '70 engine.


18" over Sugar Bear Springer:



OG ARD setup on the right will go on this bike. The aftermarket ARD on left was sent to client for use on one of his other Triumph bikes.


Adam of Speed Devices finishing up the frame. WOOOO-HOOOO!

And no top motor mount? "Shakedown" is going to be more than usually shaky.

Haha! There are no head steadies because the frame is not even welded together yet. I will be adding all those details here in my shop. I will shake it down before he gets here. There is no way I'd send him off on a major trip without getting the bugs out.

I'm so looking forward to that springer mounted to the bike. No doubt, it will look kick ass

Cann't wait to this build take shape and the details you are going to come up with along the way.

Oh crap Dan, this is too cool. I am loving what I see so far and it is always a pleasure to take a look at one of your build threads.

You will totally knock this one out of the park. It is only in the early stages but already I am thinking of exhausts and paint

Good one, Dan.

Well, it is nearly Christmas. I'm having real difficulty picturing how an Angry Monkey long bike will turn out, but that makes it all the more exciting to watch. Good luck (as if you need it)!
