That AF should be a blast!

Stock CR's are pretty badass but this one is on steroids. Has a 7" extension and a cut 130 rear tire.

Went right through the engine. Full rebuild plus Eric Gorr ported the cylinder, Millar Racing did the squish on the head and decompression valve, FMF Gnarly pipe with a shorty silencer, Rekluse Autoclutch, dual ignition coils in series with an aftermarket coil, plus a pulse injection setup with a new Keihin Airstriker carb, which is the 2 stroke equivalent of a supercharger. Look up Rons CR500 pulse injection. It's pretty trick. Sends the reversion pulse from the reed valve back into the carb inlet through a tube. Pulls hard down low and overrevs too plus smooths out the powerband. The more throttle you give it, the more fuel and air it pumps. There's no restriction from reversion. Runs cool and the plug is always a nice tan color.

Running VM C9 race fuel with Klotz Benol castor oil.

This thing rips.

First post - so how about a hearty “welcome noob” from you old farts?!

Actually, I’m not a young man myself, being on the tail end of “baby boomer”, but after wasting most of my money in life on women and guitars picked up a Harley V-Rod last summer and then an OCC one off chopper for a SONG just before christmas... and here I am!

I’m used to wrenching on Chevy small blocks, so getting my feet under me with two wheelers but am having fun along the way.

And... if you haven’t heard, American Chopper is coming back to Discovery channel in a few months, so we just might get a second wave?

On the positive side it brought down chopper prices. Never thought I'd get a low mileage cfl with a S&S and 6 speed baker trans for under $12 grand. Like everything else it'll come back and everybody will want one again. The only good thing about fads is that the market is flooded with a wide assortment of parts. Now I just watch eBay patiently for parts that were easily available 5 to 10 years ago.

Those of us dumb enough to build bikes during the peak of the fad understand "supply and demand". I built mine with really good (expensive) parts back then, now couldn't get half of what I have in it. Don't have the heart to part it out....

The "fad" is not over. I am starting a brand new project.
I will post it by the end of August.

It is a R/H drive Yamaha Roadstar engine in a rigid frame.
This time no middle drive transfer box/oil tank thing.
The motorcycle will be much lighter.

Many people are working on projects its just they cannot do it overnight.

How can it be over with those zany guys from OCC coming back! Did you see their '65 GTO bike!!Paul Jr is not planning his builds he is doing them on the fly with huge gas tanks! They have a new retarded cousin on the show!! Mikey is back with his hijinks! Our bikes which are worth pennies on the dollar will once again be too expensive to attain! We'll laugh, we'll cry and we will all be home again. AND.......wait for it.......there will be a whole new line of OCC T-SHIRTS!!!! and the Laughing Devils are still going strong, well two or three of them.

I'm sad to say I've been watching the show and have been enjoying it. OCC is now going to supply bikes to some dealerships for sale in Florida for 30K-40K, nothing wrong with that plan, we'll see if it works. Jr's bikes have that big board tracker type gas tanks now and I have to say I don't hate them, but I still don't like the wide tires, never did, never will...that's why they make vanilla and chocolate.

There's plenty of chops on the road still. Saw lots in Daytona this year. Both old school and manufactured. The OCC built bikes should be an interesting test. They look pretty cool. They ain't cheap though.
Tell ya, those guys are really good when it comes to taking on impossible deadlines. Guess it makes for better TV. At least they're not showing shit at each other all the time now.

Can't see anyone now spending $40 thou on an OCC production bike which is painted in one solid color, especially the colors they showed. That kinda price commands a custom paint job.

I can’t see that OCC business plan ever working out. You can buy a new Vette for those prices.

I had mine out for a nice long ride yesterday. Just went through the bike after more than 10 years, polished everything and freshened up some of the paint. Still looks and runs like new.

Nothing major, just a few frames cracking in half while guys were riding them. All in good fun! Read somewhere that one of them was the Cody bike. Watching them hammer and beat the shit out of them on the show may have been a clue.
