I Love mine. It handles great. The first day was strange. Had to learn how to make right turns again. I havent got mine up to 100 MPH. Ive always had a faring so im getting used to bugs and beating by the wind. All in all its been great 800 miles so far. Im gonig to Myrtle this week also. If I see a Wicked, I'll be sure to flag you down

Hey bobabooey! Your Hellbound is lookin good. I'm building one from scratch, using a hellbound frame. The frames are actually made by "Americam Made Mfg." and I bought my frame and swingarm from a shop in Oklahoma. I had a couple of small questions, and tried to get help from Hellbound steel, but "it's not one of theirs so....sorry" Nice guys though. I loved the looks, but not the price, so I'll just do it my way.
I've got about 15 pictures of my Hellbound build in my gallery, check it out!

Hey Chopper Dave,
Looks like you have some talents I dont have. You also look like you have some nice tools and space to work. Unfortunately unless there is some real easy instructions and some one lets me barrow all their tools im out of luck. Im glad to see a HBS project. Keep on posting so I can watch it through.

bobabooey,
I guess when you've been a mech all your live, you just figure that everyone's at least as smart as you. I don't blame you one bit for going the route you did. Yes, I've got a big garage, and I've been collecting tools for years, but I never built a bike from scratch before, and even though I've been wrenching on my own bikes for years, I found out I didn't know crap! When I first saw Hellbound Steel's bikes and website, I just had to have one. As was posted earlier, even their rollers are big bucks! It's not that I don't have the money, I'm just cheap (read thrifty) When I found out that The frames were made by American Made MFG. I went looking some more. If any one is interested, look at Southern Motorcycle works web site www.southerm-mc.com When you call, ask for Randy, he'll fix you up!
With the frame, wheels, motor and tranny, and all the extra's, I've got 12K invested. The bike is torn down now for paint, and the riding season is here, so I'm slowing down a bit, but I'll get her done this summer, and keep you all posted. In the meantime, ride safe, ride free!

usctrack.. Looking good man! It looks like the same pipes I got, Bassani "pro-street" Do they "pop" on decel? Do you still have the baffles in?
Take a look at my scratch-built Hellbound in my gallery. Looks about the same, but mine's a 45 degree rake, and I did a right side brake.
Cool.. I can hardly wait to get mine done....

Thanks Dave! I have only had it 29 hours now and I am like a kid with a new toy. I cant stay off of it. Once yours hits the street you will be turning some heads. Keep us up to date on the build - good luck bro.

Ooops - forgot to ask about pipes. Mine are still exact as factory - baffles still in. I think the Bassani look great and sound awesome - even with the baffle. So far - no popping. How much louder would this monster be without the baffles? I can brealy hear myseldf think now - and love every minute of it. Taking the wifey for a spin tonite. See how she likes it.

usctrack,
As mine has not been run yet, I don't know about the sound, but a guy that has the same pipes on a softail with a 96" motor told me that they sound about the same with the baffles in or out. He says the sound is so different (and loud) that all his buds know it's him coming! I can't wait to hear how mine sounds!! He said he put the baffles back in due to some loss of low end torque with them out, and it really didn't have any affect on the sound anyway. The way I'm looking at the baffles, it looks like they could be reversed (if you drill another mounting hole) In other words, if you look up the pipe now, you see the open end of the "cups" of the baffles facing toward the rear. If you reversed them so the cups were facing toward the motor, it would be a little quieter.... but who wants that?
Good luck taking the OL for a spin. My OL rides her own FXDL, and she does not even ride on the back of my Ultra. I have no intention of putting a pass pad on there anyway. I did catch her up on the build table last week, seeing if she could reach the forward controls... so I may have her wanting to ride it, but she is vertically challenged (only 5'-2") so I don't think she can reach the controls......
take care. I'm gonna add another pic to my gallery with a shot or two of the hi-$$ Climax Cycle bars on it/ These bars are cool, the brake and clutch master cylinders are in the grips, and ALL wiring, throttle cables.. everything is hidden all the way through the trees. Check out www.climaxcycle.com

Man have you guys got me dreaming. I just went to Climax site. I was surfing in there for an hour. There is some nice bars in there. The gallery is great. I never liked Shaq too much but he has a nice bike. I guess he's ok if he's riding that bike. Chopperdave thanks for the info and the sites. If had one thing I dont like about my bike its the risers and the bars. They are little spindley. I would rather something a little beefier.

Usctrack nice wicked. I will be in Myrtle next week also. My buddies hang out at the dog house (south) night and day. I would like to get a photo of the Wicked's side by side seeing that I only see another one only once a year.

Take care


Bobabooey

Man those Climax bar are sick. I need to make a few payments on this monster before I even think about adding any high dollar goodies to it ( althought I have a chrome coil cover, new spark plug wires, and a alarm on the way).

Bobabooey - I will be sure to try to find you. There is a dealer in SC - East Coast Iron Horse and they will be at Barefoot Landing. Stop by and ask for Tony or Jill and tell them that Nick sent you. They will be doing my 500 mile service for me while I am down there.
I hope to meet you down there!

Nick

ToyKraz,

Bars are beautiful. By looking at the site is price of the bars with intallation or is it just the bars. Im like usctrack, Ill have to wait. I may be able to swing 3 G's if they are installed.

Usctrack,

Sorry I didnt get your reply till I got back. I drove by East Coast a couple times. Of course parking was a problem there. I spent most of my time at Suck Bang Blow, Dog House North and South and the broken spoke. Too bad we couldnt hook up. There was a guy at Dog House South that took care me every night with parking right up front. He liked long choppers so much he wanted them right in front of his Bar. I got a great Picture of 2 girls fashing on my bike right it front of the Dog House sign. Im at work and I cant post it here. I will post it sunday.

I did see 2 HBS Hellions. That was nice.
