    Default short chop entry

    Here is my short chop entry. I have wanted to build this bike for a while now this would be the perfect motivator. It is a 650 unit triumph in a ridged frame. I have sold my Sportster to finance this build so now i have to get it done.

    A couple sketches of the cafe direction I want to take my 01 883 sportster for the greasy dozen, I'm leaning towards the last sketch. Which would be a battery-less kick only evo vintage race inspired cafe, with a single seat/oil tank, with clip ons and rear sets.

    So I got an i beam springer for my short chop, but it was misrepresented to me as a VL and is actually an RL, so I am going to try to resell it and track down the VL I want but if no one buys this one I may just put the work into it and then flip it down the road. I have also been playing with ideas for paint schemes, but nothing is solid yet. I am waiting for a frame to come back from the shop so I can start mocking up, but I have been collecting pieces pretty steadily. I am far behind my schedule of riding this pan to Mexico in May but I have not given up yet. If I get some support then it might not be so far fetched, but competition for this is looking stacked and there is still time left.

    Some really cool and thoughtful builds in this thread... a talented group, for sure. My buddy and I have an '80 CB650C we'd like to enter in the cafe racer category. We're hobbyists, just guys who like to ride, and this our first build of anything. He lives in Murrieta, CA and I live in Long Beach (~75 mi), so we make a work schedule and get together every two weeks in his home garage and just wrench.

    We're combining our passions of motorcycling and English football to create what we think (and hope) will be a sweet, unique build.

    We bought this guy a bit ago:

    We've obviously torn it apart, and so far replaced a broken piston and done the valves and carbs, but we have more than 40% to go, for sure. No doubt way more than 40% of the expenditure is on the horizon, too, which both our empty wallets are completely psyched about...

    Look forward to building this machine either way, feeding on the conversation here, and getting ideas and inspiration from the community and all the builders. Anyway, good luck to all you guys.

    Cheers.

    Not entirely sure what the final shape and color scheme will be, but I'm really diggin on these two. Good elements to consider on both. Not sure if there's been a really great looking offspring of a cafe and a flattracker, but I'd really like to lock these two in a closet for a while and see what comes out...

    Would love to enter!

    Backstory... Drove about 3 hours to pick up this completely stock XS850 triple that had been sitting outside for about 8 years Decided to challenge myself and go a little crazy with it. Picked up a complete 2006 Ninja 636 front end to use, R6 rear sets, and decided to run a mono-shock (why the hell not?). Enlisted the help of an engineer to put the monoshock together, get the suspension all set up, and off we ran.

    The photo is post suspension, prior to disassembly.

    Bike is currently in a hundred pieces in my garage. Parts have been painted/collected and the frame is at the powder coater.

    Plans/Parts:
    - Fiberglass cafe seat
    - 2006 Kawasaki Ninja 636 complete front end (USD Forks, wheel, brakes, clip-ons, controls)
    - Yamaha R6 Rear sets
    - Kawasaki Ninja monoshock (hand build sub-frame by Luke at barretostudios.com)
    - 3-3 Exhaust (shorty reverse cone mufflers)
    - New tires (Bridgestone Battlax)
    - Fresh powder coat & paint (silver/black/dark red/brown)
    - New gauges and electronics
    - Etc. etc. etc.

    Here's the rolling mockup prior to disassembly.

    This is Geo, repping the Fl gulf coast chopper movement and before you is my less than 40% done #greasydozenentry and with the talents of my best friendKevin gonna single loop the front half of this frame with some up and derake. Got the cases from a rednecks backyard and setting it up as a 88" stroker. Motor parts ans knowledge from my buddy Gator custom engraving by tony bagofdonutts This bike is gonna have some tricks up its sleeve. Miami Vice vibe paintjob by the best painter I know @brysonlunger Wanna thank @oldbikebarn @chopcult for pushing the DIY movement. If i don't get selected no worries, I'll catch my FL boys at @tarballrunflorida in Nov. #palmexpress coming at ya.

    Hey guys check out the results of my first try at powder coating... I really like the satin black but the color of the orange I'm not happy with at all. The hue is really industrial and I'm looking for something with a tone with some more pop!!! Here is my question, with limited resources I was going to pay to have my frame powder coated, but for much less money I can get some good quality rattle can with a good clear coat. So paint vs powder what do you guys think ???

    Check into some of the two stage powders I use www.prismaticpowders.com with great results. Go through a few pages of their gallery, I'll bet you find sumptin you can't live without.

    Hell with it. Thought long about it, have to apply. I could really use the motivation, and some parts (doing a whole exhaust and electrical harness & control set by time I'm done, as well as needing new tires)

    I'm a home builder, but I have access to a community workshop with a good array of welding, woodworking, and machining tools. Since starting the project, I've taught myself machining, mostly mill work but also some lathe skills. Our community lathe is kinda puny, but I sometimes get help from a member who has a larger one.

    Got the Instagram set up, @sebwiers.

    I should have a roller by the time weather gets nice enough to bring it home, after that I can work on it every day in the garage doing all the time chew stuff like a wiring harness, tune up, etc. So yeah, Sept 15 is a reasonable goal, especially with a boost of encouragement and support. I actually really want the bike ride-able for the Bearded Lade Freakshow here in Minneapolis, which is usually in the middle of July. So, hopefully I'd be riding it by then and have 2 months to put on finishing touches.

    Suspension design is mocked up and being refined to make sure nothing hits anything else when the wheel goes bump. After those parts are built, it's time to mount the shock, which I plan to have sitting right behind the front wheel on a linkage activated by pull rods. At that point I can actuall y paint it (or set if off for PC, haven't decided). Then I need to fabricate the steering bits (with carbon fiber drag rods), brake mounts (for the r6 blue dots I picked up to run on those massive old rotors), hand controls (inverted brass levers), wiring harness... oh, and put the engine back in, with a new exhaust system and airbox. But really, that's pretty much it! Compared to other stuff I've seen in this thread, its got a long way to go, but I think I can pull it off this year.

    Category - Cafe Racer. The bike is a naked 'rat rod' descendant of experimental endurance racers from the 80's, like the one shown below. I love the mechanical nuttiness that characterized that era, and would love to see it spread beyond use by a few engineering minded home builders to realize its full 'freak bike' potential. But if taking vintage racing tech and adapting it onto your old air cooled I4 to build a high performace rat bike isn't building a cafe racer, I can live with that. In which I'd ask to be considered uncatagorized.

    Here's what I got to show at this point.

    Over-all shape

    Hey,
    Id love to be considered for the Greasy Dozed build! I have 57' Triumph project motor/trans that Ive built a frame and forks around trying to hold the classic stance and general look of the choppers that dudes in the early 60's rolled around on while adding a little bit of my own thing.

    Here are the basics of what I have so far, the frame was built by me and my pal Larry, aka Handsome Larry, aka Larry Bathrooms, aka Kitty Cat Kitchens, aka Lars. A short little springer font end that i made. A 16" rear HD rim on a BSA quick change hub and a 21" HD front both on Avons to help with that classic chopper look. and the power plant (if you can call it that) is a 57 Triumph Thunder Bird. There are a bunch of pictures on my IG @debosfriend check it out.

    Im trying to as much building, not buying as I possibly can on this thing and would LOVE to be part of this.

    Thanks, DavidClick image for larger version.

    Saw hlgutherys machine in person last week. Can't wait to see it finished. If it's anything like the bike he just finished this thing will be killer! Good luck on the build either way
