Rebuilt as a Bobber in 5 months to ship to Italy as I received orders on 9/11. Kept the rocker clutch and set up tank shift

In 2006 I retired from "Uncle Sam's Flying Circus" and once stateside I could buil it into a Chopper without the hassle of overseas inspections.

Scoots okay, but that dog is clean looking, nice neck, stock legs, lights look stock also. Oh by the way, good job. If i had the oportunity I would of sold the scoot over seas, bring big bucks... Good job again..

My man IRONHEAD TREV gets all the credit for welding a piece of 3x5 inch angle under the stock motor mount. Trevor told me about this page and I hope he has an intro on here somewhere. He's still in the military and one hell of a Sarge! Thank you!

He drilled a hole in the top for the ign switch, a U-shaped opening for the choke lever (CV carb) and the hole that allows the shifter to pivot on. I'm a MOPAR guy and the Pistol Grip has been on my past couple of bikes.

Now some of you commented on my dog. Her name is Riley and she is a 6 year old Boxer. She's my shadow and goes everywhere with me....isn't that what our cool dogs are for? :cheersmate:
