This guy is in a wheelchair so he rigged this side hack that his wife rides in. When he needs to park she gets out and pushes the bike back into the stall and then he gets his wheelchair and goes about his way...

That's the Honda done by Dave Cook right? Would love to see more close ups of that motor, and some of the details on that bike. Looks pretty nuts.

The Pan belongs to Lock Baker from Eastern Fabrication out of CT. More pics of it on his site. Some pretty amazing detail work on that bike.

Wow, that Honda 500 is amazing. Not sure about that front end or the tire choice but everything else is great. Oh, and the rotors look awesome!

That Pan sure is purdy too!

OK, I appreciate 'works of art' etc. But I think that ANY bike show should be a 'ride in' if ya can't ride it at least a mile or two it just is a piece of art, so take it to an ART show, not a BIKE show.

I wasn't saying that justified it...that's just most likely the case.

Art is fine, but no matter how much you try, motorcycles and cars aren't art...they're supposed to be ridden/driven.

Me too! Those mods just blew me away. Over all I don't know if I like it but the guy that built it has a shitload of my respect!

Hahaha! Most of the art shows I go to the bikes ARE ridden to the show. But then again you don't see any fat tired twinkie things hanging around either. Let em keep these things at the bike shows. That way I wont have to look at them. One of the only real bike shows Ive ever been to was the Chop Meet. Didn't see any art only bikes there.

The Honda is from Cook Customs. It won Best of Show at Sturgis this Year. I thinks this was either his third or forth try with the other years placing 4th. if you look at the list of winners from this year, Roger Goldammer was no where to be found.

There should be a David Cook thread. The amount of detail and work that the guy puts in is amazing. That bike is a Honda four, mounted sideways with the trans cut off the motor with an adapter to mount a BMW trans to it. Its nuts... and cool as hell looking, although I doubt the rear cylinders get the cooling they need... that was the problem with the old indian 4's.

He did a badass Norton similar to it a few years back... the first bike he built. Had a 4 speed shovel trans... http://www.cookcustomchoppers.com/images/tn/tn01.jpg

"Now, the above time line from first fluids to running is pretty impressive when you understand what he did to create that engine. He started with a 1973 Honda CB 550 transverse four. The top end he cosmetically massaged to what you see in the pics. The overhead valves and the availability of parts for this engine, as opposed to an old Henderson lets say, was Dave’s motivation for using it. So that parts would be available, so that he could RIDE it.

The lower end of that engine then was completely reworked by removing the unitized transmission and refabbing the cases into what you see, adding a remote oil resevior, hand fabricating the timing assembly and hand fabricating the bell housing and clutch assembly. The cases were then sent out to be line bored so that they could once again be set up to accept the stock internals. The amount of details that I could relate to you about all the went into accomplishing this could probably overload Cyril’s server and I am not going to spend the effort on you until I think you are worth it.

Since some of you have been asking about what exactly the engine is, and I have begun to explain above, I will
finish the description of the drive line. The transimission is a modified 3 speed BMW gearcase which Dave stuffed a 4 speed BMW gearset and into. The final shaft drive is courtesy of a Yamaha Virago.

A final thought for now, is that anyone with $7,000 to $10,000, a working knowledge of Ebay, a local source for sheet, bar and tube stock, and a willingness to spend all of their time outside of their day job for two or three years could build this bike. Of course, they would also have to possess Dave’s talent as well, which I am pretty much sure why no one else has.

Thank you to everyone for your congratulations, we really appreciate your support.
