I was thrilled when ChopCult member Kevin Bosch asked if we’d be interested in running his bike. I was immediately impressed with what I saw through his Instagram account. One thing that stood out to me about Kevin is that as a 33 member, he gave Slim Fab Farm, a ChopCult advertiser, some of his business. Slim is known for his parts line as well as his building and fabrication skills. He listens to his customer's needs and gets the job done. I hope you like Kevin’s bike as much as I do.
This bike started off as an '07 Nightster I purchased from a guy in Vegas. It was a good price and I wanted to make it my own style. I went with the new EVO Sporty because it's a reliable bike and would get me back and forth with out a hassle. I changed the whole appearance of the bike and went with a more '70's look. I added the king and queen tall sissy to start it off, and then from there, just kinda worked my way through the bike.
I found out about Slim from a buddy of mine. He's a stand up guy, super cool, and does some of the best work around. He basically turned my dream into a reality. Overall, she is pretty much done. Of course, I have some minor things I want to add, some rad paint being one of them. But, that's all to come in the future; as of right now, I just wanna rip this bike every day. I named the bike Sue cuz it was plain and a work in progress average like any other stock evo sporty when I think of Sue I just think of the old 60's and 70's and how much things have changed if that makes sense
