Chris Fletchner built something that I now love, that's all I'll say.

Commence the stealin'




From His Blog,

It's been 11 months in the works and it's finally ready to rear its head. I present to you the "Beezerker"

What you looking at is a 1965 BSA A65 motor, fully rebuilt. I designed and built everything else. Some of the interesting details are; the headers that enter into the frame under the motor and then exit out the very back under the tail light, the down tube is the oil tank, fabricated sheet metal girder fork, twist clutch, cast stainless steel grips from my Schwinn mag scrambler, aluminum tank and tail, killer leather seat with real tuck and roll by my friend Attila, SU carb, mechanical rear disc brake. As usual with me all the parts are free-style machined out of aluminum or stainless steel.

Lynn and I are heading to Long Beach bright and early in the morning for the LA Calendar show.... we are shooting for best of show this year!

I'll talk more about all the little things but I need to get some shut eye ;)

Thanks for all your patiance, I hope it was worth the wait. Chris

Meh, its kinda neat. but why the ugly square bodywork with the swoopy frame?

More pics of his girly there, that'd make it easier to look at.

Steampunk is the gay. Put down the nerf gun and grow the fuck up.

What the hell is a steam punk? Someone that listens to emo and is into steam engines? You know, cry yourself to sleep while wearing striped overalls and an engineers hat.

That BSA is fucking intense. It has a 1920's art deco thing going on. The AL sheet work is amazing.

the craftsmanship is amazing, but that fucker is as ugly as a mud fence in a rainstorm in my opinion

It's a very nice bike and pics don't do it justice. I randomly helped him unload it in LB for the calendar show. He won OA and deserved it.

the workmanship is top notch, that shows in the pics. it is the style that is getting to most people. however that bike is extremely award worthy.
