Good thread. I prefer the owner built bikes. It is what makes it yours alone.

Some of these pics are old, some are newer. All fabbed, built, machined by me. Had help welding, mostly on the gas tank (Thanks Walt).

First concept, before any of the rest existed. Engine and trans from a bug I used to drag race.

After fabbing frame, swingarms, suspension, mounts, linkages, tank, ect.

Final assembly after all the machine work, stroker motor, trans shafts, modifications to make trans run upside down and backwards.

Finished with trunk on.

This summer with trunk off.

So many one off hand crafted parts it is hard to list them out. I own a machine shop and it still took two years to build. This is the only custom I have ever built but have some dreams of others with "alternate power".
You have to build it before it can be called custom.

Started with a Kraftech frame. most of the rest is my own thing...

Sorry for the crappy picts

C'mon Scary, theres a decending order of cool and WCC is at the top, we all know its true and the only thing that would make me cooler would be a bike with a vagina I could fuck start in front of 7-11 during a scratch off banaza sale. Cole 02/15/09

project 45"

this is truly built not bought, was built in my garage i consider my therapy as I'm sure most guys do when working on a project , you get so into it the time melts away. sometimes i have to tell myself i have to go to work in the morning....all mounts for sheetmetal, dash, braking, running boards, coil,wheel spacers, hand fabricated. tig welding is one of my trade skills. alignment of complete drivetrain was extremely involved to make everything work flawlessly ... and that sweet triumph you see in the background of the one photo is one of my finished projects

Does chopping up a pre-built frame to make it my way count?
