@Spade115 Hey thanks man – really appreciate it!

@golfish That’s one cool looking chopper! I love it.
I mean, I see when there’s a lot of work done to a bike, lot of spectacular parts or whatever, really recognize and respect the work people do, but in the end I always go for the simple, classic and cool looking choppers - not too much parts, design, paint job motives or whatever on it.

I think when we look back at the famous builders that were on TV and in magazines etc., now, let’s say nearly 15 years after the fad with the “wide tire choppers” was on top, it’s more or less the simple but cool choppers they built that still do look cool to me. Some of the very extraordinary (over the top) bikes of back then, do look kind of stupid or ridiculous to me nowadays. Sure, the builds were show bikes and their use was only to get attention, but still…

The fuel sight gauge is a good feature and looks cool. I also installed one on my first Screamin Demon, see photos below.

So I had the chance to work a little bit on my Screamin Demon No. 2 last weekend. So all wiring is done, handlebars, parts, mounts etc. Almost everything is done, but:
- Build bracket for new pipes, mount pipes
- Adjustment work on foot pegs – need to go to a CNC shop
- Finish work on the gas tank
- Inside coating of the gas tank – will send it to a shop

Bring parts (fork brace, starter switch box, rear fender & gas tank) to the painter.

After that, final assembly, wiring of rear blinkers/lights and lay/fix all cables to the frame. Hope everything comes along good and the bike fires up and everything works then.
It wouldn’t be that lot of stuff to do to finish it, but free time is limited and therefore I guess I have to be a little patience.

On my first Screamin Demon there's a tank of BBC, max. capacity 3.25 Gal.

On my second Screamin Demon there's going to be a West Coast Choppers Villain gas tank, I don't know but guess a little more, approx. capacity 3.5 Gal probably.

That's cool man. I think they used American Suspension springers on those bikes too...

How are the local law enforcement on no turn signals and gauges in your area?

BBC installed a pretty good digital speedometer on their bikes, with all necessary functions you need. It's a Wire-Plus Digital Speedometer - does run mph and kmh.

Here we need to have front light, high and low beam, rear light/brake light.
Turn signals are mandatory for all bikes registered 2013 and later.

Both of my Screamin Demons I could run without turn signals, but I like to have them.

On both choppers I use these front turn signals - mounted to the handlebar controls. If they're not blinking, you almost can't see them. See photos of my previous posts.



And in the rear, on my first Screamin Demon there are very small Bullet Blinkers on the side and a small rear/brake light in the fender. The lights are very small so you hardly can't see them. See photos above.

For my second Screamin Demon I will use the same Bullet Blinkers in the rear, but with blinker/rear-brake light combo. As I am not going to install a separate brake/rear light due to the fender on this bike will be a bit longer.

Finally some progress in my second BBC Screamin Demon project.

To give it a different look compared to the first Screamin Demon, I thought I should also run a diffrent tank. I had that untouched West Coast Choppers Villan Gas Tank laying around for years and I always was a big fan of that gas tank style anyway, so the time was right to make that gas tank fit to this bike. Unfortunately it was more work to do than initually thought, but finally work is done.

Had to cut out the area for the mounts on the frame, weld in the new bungs, close the petrol tap mount and replace it to the side of the tank as well as weld in a new vent tube as there was not enough space between gas tank and motor for the stock one.

Looks good so far, will send the tank out now for inner coating... hope to get it back asap and hopefully can bring all the stuff to the paint shop soon...

Pics to follow later today...

nice. I would love to run a villain on the rigid, but i think im going to look for a frisco'd 3.3 or something strange.

As mentioned in my previous post, gas tank transformation completed. WCC goes BBC

- cut out the original mounts, replace them / fit to the frame / new bungs
- reduce the open front end of the tunnel
- move the fuel tap mount to the side (not enough space between motor and gas tank)
- move the overfill/vent line to the side (not enough space between motor and gas tank)

Here are some pics...
