27 December 2016:
Something about this bikes proportions was just
not right, so I did a bit of tweaking. With 2 degrees
more rake and a slightly different shaped tank I
think it looks a lot better already...
25 May 2013:
Added oillines and an electric starter from a newer
type HD, changed the bend radius of the front pipe.
29 April 2013:
Added bearing support to transmission, beltplate
and chain tensioners. Added raised white lettering
to the tires, changed forktrees to black, changed
logo on rear fender.
9 April 2013:
Changed the rake from 28 to 30 degrees,
got rid of the fork shrouds, changed the 3"
belt to a 2" version, added a chainguard and
changed the paintjob once again.
28 March 2013:
Lowerd the whole bike 1 more inch, changed pipes,
changed paint, put 3"belt back on, added fork shrouds
24 February 2013:
Added chain and sprockets, made headlight
slightly bigger, changed paintjob and background.
16 February 2013:
Added stock primary cover for now,
(I plan to add electric start) and small
frontfender, kickstarter an different carb.
I changed the pipes from black to chrome
and experimented with paintjob to make
the rear fender look less massive.
29 January 2013:
Added headlight, taillight, top
motormount and exhaust pipes
11 January 2013:
Added king & Queen seat, narrowed
horseshoe oiltank, pullback bars and
a 3"open belt drive. Typical 80's !
4 January 2013:
Added a modified Sportster tank (stretched,
front re-angled, bottom rounded) and modified
the frame again to make the seat area shorter,
narrower and more rounded. Also added country-
bar to the frame.
23 December 2012:
Added Crazy Frank fender, new shocks,
narrowed the swingarm, added rear brakes
and 4-speed transmission
12 December 2012:
Added rear shocks, new Dunlop fronr tire
lots of frame modifications.
8 December 2012:
Added forks with shaved legs, narrow trees and
4 mini Brembo calipers. Started doing the frame
based on the lower half of a stock swingarm frame.
1 December 2012:
Started a new project just for fun, using various
leftover parts I have in my shed. Starting with the
bottom half of a 4-speed swingarm frame, an evo engine,
with Mikuni 42 carb, a round swingarm, HD 9-spoke wheels.
The rear tire is an old Dunlop K82, I always liked this
profile. Front tire will also be Dunlop. This bike
will have good brakes and suspension and an 80's styling.
And also Electric start for a change, haha!
