Stalag 13 called Shultz wants his helmet back.....
+1 The nitrous bottle on the wheelie bar is a nice touch.
Can't have it. It's a testimony to the history of adventure touring...
A Hayabusa trike? WOW. That thing will be walking the dog.
Interesting choice of right hand kickstand. USD forks with bugger-all travel nicely complement rear end with none at all. Chicken strips confirm apearances RE available lean angle. I wonder where the exhaust goes - or does it end just behind his calf?
There has been some thought put into this bike. The headlamp is, I think, a Hella Driving Light/Fog Lamp combo (two lamps in one housing), which ought to function passably well as a high-low beam headlight.
Right behind his ankle.
Any idea what is hanging from the left forward control mount? A charm, fishing sinker, ???
Cool bike (sorry, I know that goes against the theme of the thread), but couldn't imagine riding a hard tail too far.
Gremlin bell. It's a device used by idiots to enhance the notion it's not their fault when they have to lay 'er down.
Most of the time, someone else has killed a Buell before it becomes a chop. Low buy-in is the key, so wrecked bikes are a great start.
I disagree with the "piece of crap" statement. Although it is not very practical and not my cup of tea, someone did do a lot of nice fabrication to build that bike.
narrow up that mind. is life more fun if the only valid point of view is yours?
that bike looks to be very well made and is probably a gas to ride (just not on a cement highway).
Like a pig in shit, looks like it too! I don't see clean lines, or anything else, on that bike.
An appropriate use for them.
It is entirely possible that you are retarded, but you're mom loved you too much to tell you. That is far from J&P bolt-on parts.
Something about that bike looked familiar. I finally realized that I recognized the frame as being from Redneck Engineering in SC. Then I went back and looked, and that sure as hell looks like Jack, one of the frame builders down there. If it is him, then it would be a sure bet that he built that from the ground up, as he has many Redneck Engineering motorcycles. Hell, he's probably built more motorcycles that most of you have ever ridden.
Even if you aren't a good fabricator, you owe it to yourself to pick up a trashed bike off Craigslist and turn it into something roadworthy at least once in your life. It'll give you a whole different perspective on what it takes to build a chop. It is one thing to ride a motorcycle, but it is a whole different feeling to ride a motorcycle you built yourself. You'll never know that feeling until you do it.
Absolute thrilling terror.
I rebuilt my '00 kx250. No fabrication but it was a ground up rebuild. I do find extra pleasure in that. Also, it hasn't fallen apart yet.
You wouldn't want to ride THAT hard tail too far because whoever built it doesn't know shit about them. For many years, H-D had a telescopic sprung seatpost that absorbed most of the bumps. It was good enough that they used it with their telescopic forks, and those were actually fairly nice to ride.
If I went to the trouble of rebuilding a trashed bike, I would put a shock absorber on it. But I guess that might make me a rebel.
Gonna lose a toe... or break an ankle... I've gotten better at getting up on the balls of my feet.
