Picked up this frame at the beginning of Feb. Used stuff I had lying around. The only thing I had to buy was the steel to fabricate parts.
69 T120 motor with ARD mag.

Bought a 200.00 73 CB750 a couple of years ago.
Pieced this together for a total of about 1100.00, including the bike.

Getting the full redo. Swap meet score. 58 Super Rocket with a 61 engine. I'm not cutting anything, but it won't be stock since I am missing
so many stock parts.

100.00 craigslist junker I bought last winter. Turned it into a nice 1600.00 sale in a couple of months.
She was fast and smooth, I kinda liked that bike. Just not really my style.

And my trusty Shovel. Had this for 10 years and has gone through 4 make overs. I like this the best so far.
Old modified Ness rear fender, Aermacchi 250 gas tank and new decals, amoung other things.

And this, built in the la70's.



My one stocker, 78 Bonnie. Great bike after I put in a new main bearing and milling the warped head, Fork tubes, gaskets, wheel bearings, this that etc etc etc.
Has some small issues, but I really like the originality of it, paint and all. This one is a wheelie machine too, hauls ass! Not sure why exactly, but it'll
smoke my buddies freshly built T140 in a lighter rigid frame chopper.

And this 53 A7 engine in a later A10 frame. I'm hoping I'll get some expert opinions about
how wrong, dangerous, and a waste of good parts this is. Because ya know, I really value that pointless shit.
Oh my, it doesn't even have a front brake!!!

My my my SK I like your styling of recovered skinny tired cycles on the cheap. The AMC HD is a wonder to make it look so light and airy minimalist. That long narrow twisited rod fork is outrageous ridiculous appealing just to make the point that life is w/o purpose but to get high and share it as often and long as possible.

Had a grace day in upper 50's F so got in a couple hours on grimy mud covered Combat untouched from last ride a few weeks ago, feeling its crude sounds and sensations out of pace with the modern world but loving it. Only one other rider encountered on a Harley as setting sun and chill set in. Not ape hanger weather yet.

Oh its been nasty half wet half frozen in waves and into low 20's to teen's F when sun is low. That's why I call it a Grace Day, but sometimes don't get a full ride of the Grace...

Takes a bit to take in all of your creations, so got a lift and ideas reviewing again. I re looked at Peel in a new light and indeed with her tail tucked down will have the chopper stance with front sticking out

I like that CB750 Chopper, the ones we build in Australia are boring. (Bored out to 1100cc that is.)

I come across Honda choppers here and ride with them to interesting shops and such. They sound good and gutteral but for some reason built so low to the they foul pipes or frame to lean much in towns.

Why should we hate the bikes? They don't alter themselves, some army of geniuses does it for them for various reasons.....
