    Default GIANT KILLER or THE ENIGMA - - - Big and Skinny Works!

    OK, it's hard to turn me on when it comes to bikes and hot rods because I'm "in the business" and see so many of them, but my friend Matt Seret has done just that...

    Matt is the owner and talent that is Seret Speed & Custom in Vallejo, CA. If you know me from the hot rod world you've seen my single-seater modified called The Legion Special and know matt's prowess when it come to metal work, as seen on the front half of my car - 100% scratch-built aluminum!

    Matt and I have very odd taste when it comes to building shit (as seen in Mother Fucking Space Olympics and The Legion Special) and while we're able to convey our ideas to each other, other people usually look at us puzzled. When he described what he wanted to do for his bike, I was like "FUCK YEAH!"

    Technically, the bike is oversized in nearly every way (one of the only bikes I've seen with a 23" that doesn't look like a 23"), but as you can see it has excellent proportions and is very rideable. I'm 5'9" and it feels great for me. Matt is over 6' and he fits it well. It's magical, like Jesus riding a flaming unicorn.

    I think naming bikes and cars is idiotic, so I love doing it. He doesn't have a name for it so I'm offering him two: Giant Killer or The Enigma.

    Anyway, I just thought you guys would dig it! What do you think?

    Matt is like me and always ready to be on to the next project, so I'd guess he'll be selling it soon. Don't tell him I said that though.


    Specs:

    -Front wheel--23" speedway wheel, trials tire, timken star hub, with mechanical front brake
    -Rear wheel--19" rear with speedway tire, timken star hub, mechanical drum
    -Fork--v-twin springer with 3 degree raked neck cups in backwards
    -BSA 7/8 handle bars
    -Frame--craftech 1.25, stock Harley dimensions
    -Tin--narrow sportster tank. sportser front fender
    -Engine---S&S case evo motor sifton cam, Jim's big axle roller lifters, compression releses, S&S super E carb. FMA velocity stack and enrichment knob, Dyna single fire ignition, spike stator. pan head style rocker covers
    -Transmission-S&S case 5 speed kick only, Mullins chain drive pedal, primo belt drive and clutch

    You guys build some superb shit! Nice work on this. I'd go with THE ENIGMA bc it doesn't look so GIANT.

    That's the buck for an all-aluminum street legal race car. Think early Jag.

    Isn't funny when we assemble bikes, we always put the seat on first? I did the same when asembling mine. Both the car and the bike are fucking spectacular! Well done!

    Nice stuff Kirk. I really like that Legion Spl. Are those Stromberg carbs on that car? Hard to tell from the pic.

    Car is amazing man, that's where my passion is first. Bike is awesome too, I'd go with "The Enigma" because as stated above, it doesn't look giant. Great job on both

    It's an s&s evo with pan style rockers, right? Those cones didn't look the same. Like 2 completely different ones. The hole spacing looked different. But I don't know... I'm probably wrong.

    I'd expect a crazy cool strange tank or something from the guy that built that gorgeous front end.

    I think you should call it "Alabama Black Snake" or "No Too Boocoo"

    Amazing work my friend, I'd go with enigma, I think giant killer was the name of a twin engine drag triumph, but I might be wrong. Anyway awesome work on both.
