    you are wrong my friend. not everybody builds there own shit, new or not. it is an achievement. the bike is cool. very cool.

    you are right about one thing though, not quite a bobber, not quite a chop...

    I have a LOT of respect for your point of view and generally agree. That's still a beautiful bike that anybody should be proud of. I disagree a little though. While it is an assembled bike I'd say it's solidly in bobber territory.

    I was going to build a bobber this winter but ran into a deal on a ktm 950 I couldn't pass up. So no build this winter. Here is a bike a friend built a few years ago that I really like...minus the bob tanks. And he wanted a little flat track feel and threw the plates on it.

    This the picture I shot that was in the Horse last year.

    I am also a HUGE SuckerPunchSally fan. They make cool bikes, not clown rides.

    Decided to bob after a car T-boned me. Guzzi Ambo fenders. Hey- use what you got and run what ya brung, so I figure that makes it period correct.

    While I usually don't give a second look at these v-8 powered hogs, this guy definitely gets major props for using a period correct v-8 flat head power plant.:clap



    But why no period drum brakes??? :evil

    I had totally forgotten about those flathead V8 bikes. IIRC there was some connection to the legendary flathead guru Honest Charley. Either through the engine build up, or the bike itself.

    Looks like that starter motor would run a small bike.

    I love the old Ford flattie. It has a sound all its own, muffled or not. I'd love to ride that bike.

    They have a guy building their bikes using mid 30's flathead V-8's. They usually have 1 or 2 on the showroom floor. They have gotten much better over the last few years. They sound Scha-weet! 1 speed good to around 90 mph. I can't imagine wanting to take one much faster. Stop in and Mike would be more than happy to crank one up and let you listen. It's also fun to look around Coker Tires museum while there....and maybe pick up some vintage whitewalls for that bobber project. One stop shopping, as it were.
