Default Angry Monkey Motorcycles, "unleashed" pre unit build.

This build is another client build, BUT will be a different than any before it. There are several surprises on this build. Things that, before now, did not exist (to my knowledge). This client said he wanted near -0- input on the build or paint, he did not want to see ANY progress pics, and only wanted to know when it was ready to rock. This will be his second bike from me. Wow, right? The guys I work with on parts and complete bikes have restored my faith in humanity. They are really better people to work with than I could ever have expected or even asked for. And guys like this, well, I just seem to work extra hard for them.
So, here we go. The frame is a factory replacement Duplex w/no numbers. The motor is a T120 with a later nine-bolt Bonnie head. This is the motor that I had for sale a few years ago that is stamped "experimental" under the VIN. Weird, huh? It was build by NYC Norton with some premo parts. If anyone knows any factual history on why it has that stamping, please chime in.

For wheels, I went with spun steel 21/16 from Buchanna's Spoke.




Powder coated black cotton spool rear, Wargasser spool for the front.

Next is the gas tanks. This one is getting narrowed/flat-bottomed/HDs. The donor tanks were repop fat bobs with OG fillers. It's always a challenge to get a nice symmetrical inboard face when chopping these. So I used "sharks with flipping laser beams attached to their heads" Bwahaha!


And no big surprise, the fillers were 3/8" away from being located the same distance front-to-back. So that was the next thing to get sorted.

Thanks! Other than the fillers, the tanks were more symmetrical than the last set or two. BTW, they will be split tanks in their final form. More pics will follow.

Haha! Thanks Rob. If you're ever up this way, you need to stop in. So, when you say you are volunteering for the photo shoot.....How do you feel about wearing a Union Jack Speedo? JK

Here are the tanks after having the flat bottom welded on and the relief for the backbone cut in on the fronts.



Here is a pic of the fit up on the flat sides, which aren't really flat.


And....Flat sides welded on.

Dan - You must do a lot of tanks to justify keeping a hungry shark around the garage or was it a rental?

Well, considering the current economic situation, and that sharks are non-union, you'd be surprised how economical it is to have a full time shark on staff.

Good Quality.
I noticed your rim holes look reamed on one side is this because your using 3.00 nipples and they don't sit at a perfect angle?

Always enjoy your builds. What are the die grinder marks in those rims for?
