I wanted a usernane that would tie into my future business whenever I started it. To give uniformity across any forum I might be a member of.

And as far as the bars and risers I'm not even running them on my bike in its current form. More on that later. Don't want to give anything away ahead time in the build thread. I do however appreciate the input. I still got the bars sitting on a shelf so I'm sure I'll run them at some point if I get bored with the build.

So you're posting pics of the parts that you've purchased, with the date when you purchased them, even if you don't have them anymore, and the plans may have changed?

This should be a good build thread. Good idea showing all the parts and where you make changes and why. It's a process and things change along the way. I changed a ton of shit on both my builds its trial and error and I get it. Just don't delete the build thread like last time.

Thanks, yeah the point was to illustrate the project's evolution, not just what it currently looks like. This far into the project one would think I would be pretty happy with what I had so far but I was beginning to question the direction the project was taking. Having chosen one of the most popular and copied styles of WCC bikes, I found myself increasingly annoyed by the idea of my bike blending in with others.

Even the Decker skull and shop wheels would not be enough to make my build distinctive, as other projects were being posted at the time that used the same components. Finally, I would have a lot of money tied up in my wheels (more temptation for a would-be bike thief?), and would have to be paranoid about the wheels getting scratched every time I needed tire or bearing service. Thanks, but no thanks. I decided to mix things up a bit.

I decided I would sell the wheels and have a set of generic blank billet wheels machined in some other WCC style (not Lawless). If they got damaged it wouldn't matter as they weren't original WCC. I could also have the hubs machined for the lower-maintenance sealed bearings and invest the money recouped into the rest of the build and change a few other parts...

09.04.11 - Sportster style bars. Toyed with the idea of doing a CFL with the Sturgis Special paint scheme and bought these because they looked similar to Super Dupers (couldn't find a set of the WCC bars at the time). I was disappointed to find the finish was a satin black, not gloss black but they were cheap and I could have them powdercoated if need be.



09.09.11 - 39mm fork legs. Continuing with the Sturgis Special look, I opted for a narrow glide front end, since everyone and their brother was running wide front ends. Of course this meant selling my triple trees, Deuce axle, and pike nuts.



09.26.11 - Sportster front axle kit.
10.10.11 - 21x21.5 blank billet wheel (no hubs).
10.13.11 - Sealed bearing kit (set of four).
10.13.11 - Revetech valve stems (set of two).
10.24.11 - Harley neck bearings.
11.13.11 - 18x5.5 blank billet wheel (no hubs).

11.26.11 - Bought a generic set of 6" risers (non-WCC) since 2" and 8" were popular at the time. Sold my 2" WCC risers.



12.06.11 - Blings 39mm trees. Couldn't find a set of narrow WCC trees so these would have to do. Wish they didn't come engraved.



12.09.11 - Metzeler 21" tire.

Cool man, look forward to seeing it. I bought those cyclesmith bars too, but ended up selling them because it would be too hard to paint black. Ended up with a set of LA Choppers bars pretty much exactly the same but in black. Still haven;t mounted them though.

12.19.11 - Went with a peanut tank courtesy of Metal Shop Customs so it would complement the narrow front end. Had originally planned on running a King Sportster tank like the Death Dealer but opted for something less common.



New mockup.







Still need to sort out the skull mount.
