There was an interesting interview with him on Discovery Channel's History of the Chopper.

Was at the Harley Museum a while back... Really great to hear him talk and the best thing was afterwards getting his autopgraph!!!! Like waiting in line for Santa!!!!! I even told him that! He said he doesn't do chimneys or give out the magic formula for making those front ends work either!!!!! One of lifes mystery!

I could only find one post by Sugar Bear here at JJ. I've always loved the bikes he built and the style of his springer rockers. I THINK I read or heard somewhere, that he actually set up the geometry of his builds and front ends, to run zero degrees of trail. I'd be really interested to learn more about how or why he does this, and what it is about his geometry that negates the requirement for positive trail.

Anyone know anything about this?

I LOVE this bike:

We were extremely fortunate to have BEAR sponsor the chopper class and donate a 25 over springer to the class build. Bear even flew in to my school for our spring open house to see the class and meet the kids.

He seems like a nice guy. To bad that a man with that kind of talent was ignored because of his skin color. The way they make those front ends bounce is wild.

Smokeout west buddy of mine blew a head gasket and while he had his motor pulled apart sugar bear walked by with his wife asked what was up . we told him what was going on and he offered to help. We told him it was all under control got a photo taken with him and after he bailed me and my friend fanned out over the fact that sugar bear was going to fix his bike.
needless to say I think the dude rocks.

Bump for another chance.

Let's have this be a thread about the history, the man and his bikes....not a rake-and-trail classroom.
That general info and formula has been posted here many times.

(Above by request of the man, who chooses not to give advice or be seen as making recommendations on rake/trail issues.)
