Skipping forward another 4 years, the real bike
now has papers and everything has been changed again..
So, the pictures above are renderings of the
CAD version of what the real bike looks like right now
27 December 2015
Number 13, the bike that has been in the back of my workshop
for many many years. My new years resolution is to finish the
damn thing! I had taken the Shovelhead motor out of this bike
and used it for my Electraglide, this bike now has an Evo engine.
I gave it some new pipes and a diferent paintjob too.
17 July 2011
Added motogadget mini-speedo and electronics box
also added fender struts and part of sidestand
25 September 2010
Different primary cover, added oillines,
ignition coils and sparkplug cables
10 September 2010
4 November 2008
Changed color, added details like
risers, kickstarter pedal etcetera
Isn't it amazing how much difference a
different colour or tank can make?
14 October 2008
I have been playing around with different
looks for this bike, that I have bought back
from Harry. This time I tried cast wheels with
Firestones, new paint and an old Mustang tank.
9 September 2008:
I changed the shape of the gastank a bit more,
replaced the clutch made some of the black
parts chrome and some of the chrome parts
black, added details, bolts and even hoseclamps....
2 September 2008:
I bought the still unfinished project from Harry
and am now experimenting with different looks.
First the bike needs to be registered, so I will
need to build it as street legal as possible.
After that, we will see......
For this version I changed carb, paint, rear fender
and tank, already it looks a lot different than
the orange version!
25 Oktober 2004:
Changed the seat and the pipes to look like what
we have been building on the real bike.
16 March 2004:
I modified the pipes again, Harry wanted
to try matt orange instead of glossy and I detailed the
Weber IDF carb and manifold to look exactly like the real
setup we built for his bike. I also added Harry's recently
bought L&L Tribal forward controls.
Project started 28 April 2001,
Harry's Swingarm-Shovel (see Friends Bikes) is going
to be rebuilt into a hardtail-chopper; he bought a Swedish
hardtail frame, some nice 6 degree angled triple trees,
a sprocket brake set and much more at L&L
We intend to use this Cadbike-project to experiment
with various different looks, as we build the real thing.
This was the original plan for the engine....
