Perfect for a ride from Long Beach to Sturgis.

HD softail suspension, big fuel tank, luggage rack, and saddle bag.

Well everyone is always looking for something different. ...They "are" different.

I saw a write up on those pipes mounted on a CFL II, and the area with the circles is actually a crossover for performance gains.

The bike here looks better than the finished product. He should have painted it silver and kept those pipes, and left the luggage off.

Well, he did keep the pipes, anyway.

Check the pic at the gas pumps, just added heat shields.

Next I'm going way back to a couple of bikes Jesse made before everyone recognized his name.

While still making one off parts for the bikes, along with all the sheet metal, these did "not" have exclusively WCC fabb'ed parts on them, from front to back.

Frank,

Please post some of those early rubber mounted FXR based bikes he did. If you have any pics of the gold FXR where the pipes exit through the side covers that would be great!

Here's an oldy, with a Boyd's rear swing arm, Jesse's sheet metal, looks like the early El Diablo rear fender/strut treatment, and the low, slammed look that was popular when this was built....( pre-CFL days, for sure)

I have other pics in print of this bike and I'll try to scan them but in them, you can see it has billet front end and wheels with a belt pulley and rotors to match the wheels, PM brakes, mid controls, and a recessed tail light in the rear fender. Oh yea, it's a 1993 softtail.

Another old one.



"TV star Jennifer O'Dell with a Jesse James West Coast Choppers classic were photographed in 1997 by Jim Gianatsis for the Mikuni 1998 Iron & Lace calendar."


"FastDates.com Calendar
Pictured above was young 19 year old Los Angeles model Jennifer O'Dell with a custom bike from an up and coming bike builder named
Jesse James, both photographed by Jim Gianatsis for the 1998 Mikuni sponsored Iron & Lace Calendar."

I saw this bike a few years ago at Laconia. One tough no nonsense WCC bike made for Baker Drivetrain.

I've got to get a scanner for the PC I use, the only one I could use in in my kid's room. I have a real good pic of this bike, on film.

It's not very easy to get time with that computer.
