Seems to me that that's a lot of work and money into a bike if you don't get out there and enjoy it on the road for a while......especially, with all the interesting changes that will, I would suspect, appeal to only a few if one's aim was to sell it after 10 miles. Of course, there may be more to the story. I wonder how hard braking might be with those dual discs and the handlebars and that front end........could be exciting.
That elec start and belt drive conversion have been avail since '69 Google Quiet Power Drive He is a wealth of information. Last year we priced the conversion out at 3800..you have to send him your cases. Its 5k for a shop to do it all These systens work perfect
That bike is a bargain. The rest of the work is moot
The formula for how many motorcycles to own is: n+1=y n = the number of motorcycles you currently own.
wow, sounds like an old ladies convention! lol with all that whining and sniveling about a bike that looks pretty good. Who Knows? maybe its worth a look, Maybe he assembled it to sell it, I know I have built a few to just sell. Maybe he really does want a sportster
Ok, my turn to snivel: Why would anyone build a bike that's 99% purposeful and performance-oriented, and put ape-hanger handlebars on it?
Triton Thrasher's comment resonates with me. It's hard to get a lot of money for custom work; most folks who want a custom bike want to do the customizing themselves. The joy is in the doing, not in the having.
