    Default my sporty chop, reborn



    (this was taken a few hours before I went down)

    The last day or so in March of this year I got hit from behind, by a buddy on his chopper. He wasn't paying attention as we all were slowing down on the highway. Bike was pushed from underneath me, and rolled off to the left, and I hit the pavement, sliding on my hips and ass at 50mph or so, friends riding past me as I am sliding. Caught my footing and ran to a halt. No broken bones, thank goodness. Lots of bruises and road rash. Shittiest situation I've ever been in. Had the most depressing summer ever, as I love riding my chop more than anything. All year round, in Co, weather/road pending. Luckily, i have my heritage to ride. Well, slowly but surely, it's coming back together cooler than before. I never wanted any downtime, even for a week or 2 in the winter. But I was forced this downtime, so why not. The tank, 6 over fork tubes, rear fender, sissy bar, etc were damaged.

    So here's some of the progress. I'm not a welder or a fabricator, but my friends are.

    My buddy Thadius the blacksmith made the seat pan and we carefully test fit it to my back and sitting style, then sent it off to a local guy in Denver to get it covered.



    Thadius used his blacksmith tricks and made this, I just told him what I wanted.




    The lights are modified led lights from dead beat customs.

    The tank was painted by my buddy Neil, @fea_one on IG , and I wanted kinda a Frank Frazetta style chick on the top, with a cool mural on both sides.












    As of right now, all I need to do is get my new brake line and a tank from being cleared, and then put it on the bike, fire it up and adjust the clutch cable and I'm done. I also bought materials to make new upswept parallel cocktail shaker pipes, but that's going to have to wait, while I am in Japan for the Mooneyes Hot Rod Custom Show. I'll post the finish pictures whenever I get them, hopefully it'll be done before the distinguished gentleman's ride in 2 weeks.

    Looks great. What hardtail is that or is it something you built?

    Nice work, love the bike. Off topic a lil bit, love the vintage boards on your wall. My first snowboard was that kemper.

    A few minor adjustments and it's time to roll!
