$5800 price tag actually seems way cheap for all that's been done? ...Lotsa effort... but the electric start looks nicely done. Wonder how well it works?

You can spend ages and $$$$ messing up a bike and that's fine, but don't expect to be paid for it.

After running ten miles since building, nobody knows how well any of it works.

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.

something is weird about this. ten miles? only $5800?


Into the distance a ribbon of black
Stretched to the point of no turning back
A flight of fancy on a windswept field
Standing alone my senses reeled
A fatal attraction is holding me fast how
How can I escape this irresistible grasp?

The intake manifold alone is a piece of work. But I have to question it's flow characteristics.


Will work for Guinness smile

Hydraulic clutch and rear brake are pretty cool, I agree with Oily on the manifold, it would seem like the left cylinder would run lean.


When given the choice between two evils I picked the one I haven't tried before

Made a poor job of aligning the throttle cable into the carb top. One of many things the next owner will have to fix, I expect.

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.

It's rather gauche to crackle-finish the covers, but leave rust on the barrels.

Is that the brake light wire nearly dragging on the road?

That is a QPD? I've read about them, never seen one. Actually, I thought they were even more expensive. They only work with belt drive?

Of course, I'd never consider purchasing it, now that the almost-dragging brake wire has been shrewdly pointed out... no wonder this guy is selling it.

Girder forks and twin disc brakes - what could possibly go wrong?

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.
