Only I'm not in Sweden, but TEXAS. A while back I got hit by some dumb lady in her PT cruiser on my sporty. These were some of the last photos I took of it. It could have been fixed, but I was in the market for a big twin, so I decided to cut my losses and take a check.

Sure did love that bike.

So I bought a new big twin. 1340cc evo in a paughco swedish style frame and a paughco narrow springer. It was pretty ugly but had potential.

Rode it the 2 hours home from Killeen with no real issues but it was super uncomfortable and its just too old man spec for me. Started ripping into it last night. Have some parts on the way to make it not suck as bad.

Frisco mids, alien tank, and a bunch of other stuff is in the mail. Same guy will be painting it. Also if anyone wants to buy these forward controls, or the seat, they are for sale or trade.

I'm not only saying this as a proud swede, but that swedish style is fucking awesome.
If you play your cards right you will have a sweet bike..

It looks like something out of a 70īs horror movie, a fire breathing godzilla..
Not in a bad way

Great buy bro

Yeah I'm stoked about moving into the big twin world. Got the tank mocked up today, big difference already.

That's gonna be sweet. Hope you like the frisco mids...I just put on forwards myself. Cory at maindrive was real good about supporting his product and walked me through a couple of tweaks that had to be made, so I know you can go right to the source, but I'll be happy to answer any questions you may have.

Can't wait to see how this turns out.

Yeah, I'm familiar with what swedish style is, just curious why it's called that.

Don't know if I got my facts straight but this is what I heard about the name "Swedish Style"-choppers.

Swedish style = clean, Scandinavian minimalistic and less is more, raked and long thin legs. Much like our ladies.

Back in the days (post WWII) bikers wanted to start to build more laidback bikes to make their bikes stand out from the bobbers.

Removing all shit from the bikes, rake it and put on long forks to make it ride like a sofa.

This was illegal in almost all countries including the us exept in Sweden. The loophole was that Americans could import Swedish bikes\frames with a lot of rake and long forks and ride them legal.

This is the only reason Sweden got on the chopper map with famous bike shops.

Hence the name Swedish Style.

I might be wrong tho

sorry about the evo, holy shit your garage is nice! makes mine look like a rat-hole. you know though, my cousin says nothing good ever comes from sweden (we're from there). Enya, the Hives, and that frame. They can keep them.


jk jk. you've gotta do something about the stance though, it sucks! are you gonna lace a 19 like snick did?

That garage photo is actually my parents house. My garage is a shithole. I just use their place sometimes.

And I dont mind the stance after seeing the bike with the tank on. But I plan on doing an 18 or a 19. Also, evos for life.

Also, if anyone wants to trade me a 20+ over narrow springer for this 15 over paughco that would be rad.

Still some upcoming changes in the next week. But then its stash money and search for a 25+ over springer.

Got a spoked wheel and shinko going on here soon, scored a speedmaster for 40 bucks from the swap meet, and have a chrome fender sitting in my garage. I also have one of those fancy 69ltd sissy bars being made for me, the trident style, in polished SS. And an old gold cobra seat as well. I think once those things go on I will be pretty happy with the bike for the time being.

I can't say I like the lean on that sissy bar tho, straight up and down for this guy.

Yeah I am not too fond of the lean on the sissy bar either, thats gonna be gone when all the new stuff arrives.

Dayum...the lean on the sissy bar is one of my favorite parts. Oh well...

This needs to be moved to the regular american forum. This is not a sportster. :)

I would appreciate if this was moved OUT of the sportster section. I finally upgraded.

Was that the stock Sportster frame with a hardtail kit or an aftermarket frame with some stretch up and out?

Im positive its a weld on hardtail. Looking at the neck, its the stock neck with the gas tank and coil pack mounting hole still there. and the front downtubes have the origianal manufactuers/laborers sticker there.

Stock rake.

also, the frame looks to be using the stock seat downtube. so that kinda helps narrow down the type of hardtail
