Current ride. Slowly striping it down. Knee surgerys slowing me down. Basically just a cam, carb and hand shift.

This is the project I can never seem to finish. Heritage in the back ground was my fathers.We got it when my father passed away. My brother rides it now. No chopping on this one. Leaving it the way Dad had it.

That's me getting started young on dad's bike about 17 years ago. I'm up front. Currently being rebuilt and trying to think of some ideas for paint.

Talking my old 1913 H-D model 9E chain drive twin

my old 1913 H-D model 9E chain drive twin, single speed since H-D did not develope a 2 speed until 1914 when it used excelsior's 2 speed rear hub. also, no floorboards, you kept your feet on the peadles. this was the scariest bike i ever rode. it would do 60 if you had cast iron balls. i dont, but i rode around 35-40 mph and what a handfull! ridgid rear, 1" travel in front, tiller type bars, coaster brakes just like your old schwinn bicycle, that worked about as well!

Default '38 Ul

my favorite bike, my 1938 UL 74" flathead. i built this about 12 years ago, it is not fully restored, but about 95% correct, needs step hubs, less chrome, correct bars, & air horn (carb cover) but other than that it is about all correct. a blast to ride, with or withour the sidecar attached.

Here's my '69 Triumph Bonneville that is almost done:



And my '69 BSA Lightning project I just started:



I've also got another Triumph I'm going to try to build at the same time as the BSA...it'll actually look nothing like this when it's finished:



Finally, here's the Triumph I sold at the Lonestar Roundup...I kind of miss it, but it did help get the shop up and running and allowed me to buy my new TIG:



There are more pictures of my junk at: http://www.picturetrail.com/basskustoms

Bass,your BSA is going to be one killer ride.Already heard about your plans for this one on the HAMB but didn't reply to the thread because so many people already told you how bitchin' that bike is going to be or already is.Of course they were right.Your idea for the fork is pretty cool and I like those shortforkers a lot ! I look forward to any progress on this one.The stance is right on and the bike is very low.Do you think you can build it this low ? I'm just thinking of turns and curves...

Damn Bass! I didn't even you sold that first bike you did... But having a TIG machine rules too though!

How long have you been working on the bare metal chopper now..?

Nah not really, just little shit. Since i work nights, i can bring small stuff into work with me and tinker out on the loading dock. Got the points cover with me tonight to sand down and i sanded the rear fender last night.

Realized after fighting with that damn frontend, (what's up non sealed bearings and having to fight with little individual ball bearings) that the neck doesn't have fork stops on it. so i have to take it off again to make some. DAMN

Maurice....Yes, having a TIG is a good thing. I bought an older used Miller (Airco) Dialarc HF 250 amp machine with a water cooler. I'm actually getting pretty good at it already I think...but I do need lots more practice. It's a lot harder than Jimmy White makes it look!

I started on the bare metal chop back in November, but I haven't worked on it much for the last 2 months because I've been pretty busy with other stuff. I'm going to finish wiring it this week though...and try to start it.

Thanks Frenz...post some more pics of that bike of yours when you get a chance.

Default Honda 450

I got hooked on Honda 450s for a while. Probably because the motor looks so nice. I rode em, raced em, and of course chopped them. This was one of them. Poor picture, I'll see if I can find some better ones. This is a 4 speed motor in an AEE/C&G rigid frame.

I've never heard anyone call a flathead 45 an 'ironhead'. I have aluminum heads for all of my HD 45s.

Default Harpoon did your paint, right?

I think I remember him showing some pics of that paint job a while ago on the FUCK board. His paint work is the shit.

Nice bike--did Chica have a hand in it? His shop built my frame. . .

Yeah, I've been busy! I just finished hardtailing an Evo Sporty, so the guy could take it to Laconia. Check it out. And, I took this weekend to do some of MY projects

Also, if you look in the background, on the lift, you'll see a 103" Knuckle bobber just started for a guy. And, I have a "super secret" WCC built frame to start another bike for Carlos.

Nice bike--did Chica have a hand in it? His shop built my frame. . .
Yeah, The Harpoon is the real deal!
I got the frame 3 years ago from Chica.
It was one that he and Nelson bent back in the day.
Its the smoothest-riding rigid I have ever ridden.

The hardtail was one made for an ironhead sporty, I just cut off the old lower mounts, then I extended the rails to mate with the Evo lower frame area.

Default My frame

was done a couple years ago post-nelson. Johnny chop was the guy I dealt with there mainly. I was visiting Chica's in april and he had some sweet shit going down.

The 'poon is hooking me up with TWO paint jobs--I am saving one for my shovel project and I still haven't decided if my triumph deserves the 'poon magic. . .

Default Imagine that. . .

Irish Rich working on his own shit. I don't believe it.

That carlos dude must have some serious dough for the work he's getting done. Good for him.

I am in the middle of my own fabrication nightmare now. I am widening my triumph frame rear section so I can run a juice brake--what a fucking disaster. I am gonna try and finish it up tomorrow.

Corey. yer Nailhead is still waiting patiently behind the 56 Chevy and under God knows what. it'l take me half a day ATLEAST to dig it out. you goin to the HAMB drags?? i can't make it cause of a family obligation (thought i was gonna go this year too) but i could prolly get Levis Classic to drag it down there for ya.

I ride this 'un pretty regular. It's not a chopper or a bobber in the same sense that a taildragger isn't a hot rod or a gowjob.
Look close--it AIN'T a storebought Indian. I built it.

That little dot there at the end...it's a period. It separates one statement from another.

Ironhead project, as in this is another bike I'm building that will have an Ironhead motor/trans.

Questions?

Man, I got ripped off! About that same year I paid $90 for this and it barely ran.

I got tired of replacing headgaskets on the flathead 74. Even though they only cost 90 cents a piece at Hap Jones.

Eventually I saved a few hundred more and upgraded to this tangerine colored pan ($300)

After the connecting rod in the pan decided to explode the cases into a million pieces, I then put a knuckle in the old pan frame. Then finally I had a reliable ride.

Mike I'm about 30 min. northeast of you. Just west of Flint off of I-69.
I will probably be selling off some misc. XS stuff after I get farther along on the projects (read started). See Ya at BP05 next weekend? I'll be the bearded guy without a ride and my two kids in tow.

When you first posted the pic of your bike, the pic had some website warning that the link was forbidden. I thought that was rather severe language so I made fun of it, the auslinken is just some jive I made up for "outside links".

Thanks,

The front end was extended 3 1/2". In those days you replaced the threaded top plug in the fork leg with one that was 3 1/2" long. Then you pushed the whole front end down that amount in the lower triple clamp. wierd stuff. A guy named Stan Dishong (Stan's cycle shop) specialized in making those "extensions", he was located in Vallejo, Ca.

The motor was a 1938 61 cu inch lower case, pan head barrels, with flathead flywheels. that would make it then stroked to 80". A retired guy who used to build racing engines built the motor. I can't recall his name, but he had a machine shop along side the Rogue River in Oregon.

I freaked when those mufflers showed up cause they were so big looking, but they sounded great, melloooow, like glass packs.

I like the staggered look of those pipes, kinda thinking about something like that for my Sporty, but looks much better on a rigid frame...

Cool Re: Show your bike pics

This was my first Harley, I was building a go fast mini Dresser style bike. I had to sell it to move the family to Phoenix. I was able to get the invaders back and i have a coffin tank and z-bars to start the next project. Looking to build a rigid with a girder or springer, but the motor is undicided at this point.

I have 62 FLH and a 63 Matchbox but neither look nearly as good as those. You got some stylin scooters.

Gonna try this one more time.

FXR is my daily rider, that doesn't get ridden very much any more (I'll blame work). I tore the Panhead back down for a complete makeover. Knuckle and Shovel were my rides from the late 60's to the early 90's.

Yeah its broken down now. I'm cleaning it up and hoping to snag a sticker kit for it but for the most part it will stay like it is......till I sell it!If I can snag a set of 401s then it will be ON. But I cant seem to get any for a reasonable deal. I was thinking maybe some Tourneys in the mean time.....

Where was that picture of the chick on the BSA taken? I think I know the owner of that Ford Shoebox... unless its yours and they look the same. The guy's name is Eric. Anyway, useless information is what I do best.

She modeled on Caffienes bike and was the owner of the car's girlfriend. Her name was Jen and he was John. I featured his sporty "aces and Eights" a few years ago.

Skateboards? Mine was homebrewed about '62. A piece of 1x4 with steel wheels off of a pair of skates. I shaped it like a surfboard, sorta. I thought I was hot stuff when I skated down the top of the curbs in my little Midwest town.

Here's one of my rides. It's a '39 Indian Sport Scout. Mine since about 1973. I courted my wife on this bike, chased her 'til she caught me, as my Grandad used to say. In the background is a '41 Scout bobber project.

BC66-- I drool over that silver bike every damn time I see it. Sometimes I do a search, just to look at it for a while. Easily my favorite Triumph chop. I can't believe you let it go. I would hope the buyer made it well worth it for you.

Nice rides guys.

Here's my budget ride. I spent a few winters on it. It is a '77 Yamaha xs 650. Rigid, 18" rear tire, cammed up motor, and the funnest thing I've ever ridden. I'd like to see more people to chop up the abundant Japanese bikes. I dig Harleys, but they are almost cliche' as the bike to chop. To each his own, right?

Your scoot looks good. I have seen the cafe racer guys drill five, 1 inch holes in those conical hubs, makeing them look like Manx hubs. Speed holes are always cool in my book and they really set those hubs off. If you look in the inside of the hub, there are five reinforced webings that you can use as a template. Obviously, miss the reinforcements. Just a cool detail that came to mind when looking at your bike.

Must be a ness frame--that thin frame tubing is a dead giveaway. They are cool frames for sure.

Josh, that thing is looking great. What motor is going in that?
