    Hey Dudes!!
    Super stoked on the Dirty Dozen! Heres my entry. 70's survivor chop, found it just as you see it, mail order style! I still haven't totally pegged sown the frame MFG (all input welcome!) Im all about keeping it as close to its original style, but with my favorite Japanese powerplant! I've got the motor mounted, pipes and electronics box close to done. I got some clearance work to get a stock XS650 rear wheel to work. Will post more on that soon. Lots of work left with a finish goal of late May. You can follow my build on instagram @Idaho_chad I will post here as much as possible as well!

    Just posted my entry on instagram at @juggernautcycles! Been waiting on this since last year when I found it and was a bit too late to enter. Got a mess of a shovel I'm entering but its a solid platform. Iíts a 1980 Shovelhead FXE. It is currently a bit of a mess since I am removing and draining all oil lines and in the process of removing the rocker boxes for hand polish. It has S&S 93″ cylinders and will be kick start only. It has matching numbers on the frame and engine so Iím keeping the frame and motor together although Iíll have to chop some stuff off the frame. Iíll also be keeping the front forks and sticking with the swingarm. Everything else will go. Iíll be doing the custom leather seat and hand engraved parts myself. Iím rebuilding the engine and doing a complete rewire because Iím getting rid of every other part and adding my own. I hope to be involved in this awesome "collective" either as one of the dozen or as an associate! This is one of the coolest concepts out there for small shops and home builders. Its also fantastic of all the sponsors who support it!

    My project bike is a 1990 sportster 1200. I'd love the opportunity to join the Greasy Dozen as a first time builder, or an associate builder. I rent space at garage with all necessities to build a bike. For my scoot entry I'd like to build a short chop. My plan for the bike is to hard tail the frame, keep the forks but lower them (or perhaps use a girder instead), and rewire. New tins (frisco tank, horseshoe oil bag), build a sissy bar, 23" spoked wheel in the front, keep the solid wheel in the back. Mini apes or risers with drags, spitfire high and tight pipes. It would be a simple but tough looking daily rider with the moniker "midnight rider". I'm looking forward to the chance to be a part of this! Thank you to all the sponsors, chop cult, and Bear! This gal's fingers are crossed.

    Used a factory pan/shovel internal throttle. I've used 2-3 other styles and these still work the best. Kinda of a crude process in getting it out of the original handle bars. I would have turned them out with the lathe but they where so crooked, that wasn't an option. Had to get the honey out the old hard way!Click image for larger version.

    The 4 speed came in for my panhead short chop build. I know next to nothing about these so I brought it to a friend to inspect. We opened it up and the gear teeth were all mint, but there was some wear from hard shifting that we noticed. If I wasn't going to make this bike my daily and long haul bike, I would have run it no problem, but for the way I ride and what I expect of this bike, I will be replacing them with Andrews. Not sure yet if I should do close ratio or not, considering how tall a 19" is on the rear. But the gear order is on hold until I find a VL springer, so I have time to research.

    When I got home, I laid some tape on a skate deck and thought about how I am going to pull off this paint job. If it plays out like in my head, it is going to be an interesting mix of classic style and over the top.

    So if I understand the rules right, the greasy dozen build doesn't start until February... Looks like some of the guys on here and Instagram are commenting like the bikes they are posting up will be their "greasy dozen" bike build... Am I not reading this correctly?

    The bikes wont be selected until February, however, I don't think any of us are waiting to be accepted to work on our builds. I will update my build here until the bikes are selected, then I will either make my own thread for my build or just keep it on instagram.

    Thats exactly it. Its starting a little later this year as well, but its not really about what you can build in XXX amount of time, its about what you can build period. Guys putting the together in their garages and shops, and thats why its not a buildoff, but instead a collective.

    Post up pics, keep it going. Last year was a cool group, this year should be too.

    Going to build a short chop drag bike. Should be quick going to punch out the motor to an 850 and make it least look like its going 100mph sitting still. This is what I have so far.

    This is awesome news Bear!
    The folks at S&S are sponsoring the AMRA again this year, they are great people who do a TON for the industry. Glad to see they are sponsoring the Build Not Bought movement of the Greasy Dozen!

    Liked the throttle side so much, I couldn't help but make the other side match. Most of my bikes have tape grips, so I threw some on there to see how it looked. Click image for larger version.

    Here is my entry.. I reposted the Greasy Dozen poster awhile back but just saw this thread. Hopefully I get picked it sounds like a great oppurtunity. Good luck to all.

    Its a 1981 front half of frame and engine. We are setting it up with a modern 5 speed, starter and primary for reliablity (not to mention a better clutch and starter). Frame has been hardtailed and installed a late model sporty front end with 16x3 front wheel. Unfortunately it looks further along than it is, the sheetmetal is just sitting on it. Hopefully I will have more done next week.
