IHC Cobra

Originally I was leaning towards BBC venom kit cause I love the style and it was a kit. But I wanted driveside and PM wheels but the upgrade was not worth it. BBC machines the pro-one wheels to use the driveside brake, I didn't want that because what if I wanted to sell those rims! So I phoned IHC a couple of months ago asked a few questions then I did my own reseach - like club chopper. Then last friday I phoned Lewis again asked him about the frame kit and he was very accomadating so I went with the kit then motor became a subject and guess what I went with that. He deals with TP alot so the price was great!!
I have a IHC Pro-Street Cobra frame kit, handle bars, and motor on the way. The tank is amazing, it covers the gap by the neck, it has a pointed end, and hugs the motor. The motor is an polished TP121 (was going to go with the 124 but I like the 2 years warranty and someone here mentioned that it was the smoothest TP- thanks)
So far I ordered frame kit, handle bars, motor, Accutronix Slotted forward controls, and licence plate mount.
Next purchase is going to be:
- PM Seville rims, pulley, driveside rear brakes, 6 piston front brakes and discs
- Baker 6sp
- 3" open primary - BDL maybe
- Spyke/MGS inverted forks
- and the small stuff like headlights, hand controls, starter, etc..
I am "Happy like a pig in shit"

Merry Christmas everyone!!

Peace
Dude

That's great to hear your comment on IHC, I just got off the phone with them. They are sending me some initial pictures and stuff. I am looking at the Knightmare with that same new tank. Keep us posted with lots of pictures.

Dude;

Got a quote from IHC about 2 months ago on a rolling chassis kit based on the Pro-Street Cobra as well. That's with 56mm Mean Street inverted forks,4" stretch in the backbone, Evo rims (can't remember what kind though), Avon rubber (250 rear)etc.....pretty much everything minus the motor and trans. Based on the exchange rate for the day, I was looking at $12,500 (not incl. taxes) which is comparible to some of the kits stateside. Nice things is not having to worry about duty, shipping etc.
What a great X-Mas present . How long before they deliver? Keep us posted and have a great X-Mas!

Northstar,

I like dealing within Canada also. Alot of parts do come from the US though. Just remember that there is no duty on motorcycle parts, NAFTA, just taxes. I paid IHC in USD which was helped us both. Hope you go for the Cobra, its a sweet looking ride. The motor in a month and frame anytime since they are the manufacturer.

Peace

open ears,

I really like the style of the venom but like you said " i was leaning towards the bbc but since he picked one up i am trying to find something different and the ihc seems nice. " Alot of people are going to have the same kit with close to the same parts which is almost the same bike. If you go with Iron Horse Choppers frame kit ( a few to choose from) - they will accomadate you with whichever style you want ie; LSD or RSD, tanks, cuts in the fenders, center post, etc. Than you can purchase your own rims, front end, etc to match what you personally like. I'm not saying that you can't with BBC but this way its kinda one of a kind thats why we call them customs.
Give them a call for info and pricing:
Canada Only, Call Tollfree: 1-866-626-1116
USA Only, Call Tollfree: 1-866-877-3223
I dealt with Lewis. When I called him last time he told me what he was ordering (TPs) and told me the price - guess what I sent him money the same day cause I didn't want to pass it up. IHC will work with ya and you will have the bike done by the time your cuz gets his parts and depending on the componets it may end up costing the same or just abit more.

All the best.

I am really currious how much of a difference in price there would be between the kit from BBC and putting it together on your own. Seems like it would cost quite a bit more to by it piece by piece....is it?
