The orange / black chopped buell.

A lot of time and thought went into it. Engineering it to be the best bike possible wasn't the goal I do not believe. It has a unique look about it that does set it apart from many others. The builder must have considered many things when putting the design together. As it catches the eye, it works for me. As it is to ride, well it isn't my bike and I am not sure that was the intended goal of success of the design.

Now that said, the others recently posted had someone working for a certain outcome. Whether we agree with that vision or not really doesn't matter to them. They were doing something from their vision, not yours or mine. (as well as wallet) Did it succeed? Who knows unless you ask them. At least they did something and ride it with some degree of success.

Now did they fail on the dragon? Inquiring minds want to know.

I believe the front forks are totally collapsed as in no travel to match the rear. Must ride real nice.

Built this for a local Triumph dealer back in '92
'68 T100 Endurocross.
The frame,swing arm,rear sub frame,side panels,seat pan,skid plate,front fender mount,exhaust head pipe,shift lever,brake pedal and kicker were all fabricated by you guessed it.....yours truly.




Been a Welder/Machinist,Fabricator since 1975.

First dirt modified I built 1984.
This driver in another one of my cars later in '93 won the inaugural $25,000 to win Amarillo Modified Classic.



1,187 cars later in 2003 the last dirt mod I built.


I think I know my way around the shop fairly well.

so what you're saying is that since you didn't build it,it must be crap.
some very skilled people admire there peers, and some don't,has to do with jealousy and ego.

They've turned this into the ATTACK OUT OF JEALOUSY thread. Hide 'em behind a keyboard and they turn into 14 year olds.

Some idiot killed one of Erik Buell's finest to build that piece of crap.

I see nothing fabricated, most likely built from a J&P Cycle catalog.

sorry Kioti, i don't know how i got the wrong idea.
