Options This bike has not been in magazines,on TV,in movies,or built by anyone famous.It's a bike I started collecting parts for years ago. I wanted to build a chopper that I thought reflected the way things were in the 60's. I started with a 1952 panhead frame that had already been raked. so I cut the down tubes,top bar,and the lower front,to extend it up and out.The springer fork is mid 40's extended 15 inches over stock. the sportster gas tank is mid 60's. The engine is a 1950EL with 56' heads and 74 inch bottom end. the cylinders are .030 over. M74B linkert carb, later panhead oil pump. I wanted to upgrade the electrical system so I went to 12 volt,with state of the art 8 cell EVO2 battery from Ballistic Performance Components,and Cycle -Electric low output generator with built-in regulator. The battery solves the age old problem of the small 12 volt battery in the 6 volt type oil tank. The transmission is also 1950,that has been rebuilt. The rear rim is a 16x4, with a 6 inch ribbed rear fender. All of the wiring was done in cloth just like what was used in the 60's. This bike runs great (needs to be broke in only 35 miles on it). It's fun to ride! As a collector or a rider I think anyone would dig this bike...........Please feel free to ask questions..... The color sublime is from mopar muscle cars as is the satin black used on hoods and panels,the devils fork sissybar is from "The Devils Weed" and green is the color of the weed. That's the 60's man ! I know the sissy bar looks very tall in the pictures but it measures out at about six foot. Also I want to mention that the engine has been upgraded to a cam 'bearing' instead of a bushing. The transmission and engine cases have been polished to a mirror finish. Again...Please feel free to ask any questions.......
