Cfl build

Is there some unwritten law that if you build on a cfl frame you have to use as many wcc parts as you can get? I like the cfl geometry/design so I am going there.. but every part wcc I can fit is not on the agenda. Is there some sort of cult I am not hip to? Sorry but cool-aid is not the drink of choice here.

Amen!

The frame is a nice frame but for some reason guys want to turn them into rolling commercials with 8, 12 or 15 logos plastered all over, sorry but it just looks a bit silly to me. They look exactly like the guy who has the " Live to ride ride to live" cam cover and clutch cover and horn cover and air cleaner cover and t-shirt and......

Plus that if you follow that standard formula you will own the bike for 4 years put about 2000 miles on it total and sell it for a staggering loss on ebay.
Take a look a the mileage on CFL's on ebay sometime if you don't believe me.

I'm building a 2 up CFL now. It started out being a shop built look alike but as things progressed I went my own direction and I'm glad I did. It is your bike, build it your way.

-thats kinda my opinion too...however; i really like wcc frames, fenders and exhaust systems...pretty sexy metal

-wcc air filters are pretty dang kuul ...but im glad i had a 'polished' ss w/hi relief lettering

-i do give mr jj one hell of alot of credit and deep down, im jealous of his hard earned success

-im not much into 'vanity parts'...thats what 'mainstreamers' purchase, i think

-acourse thats just my opinion of wcc

Agreed, go your own way. Here is a pic of my 140CFL. The only thing WCC is the frame and gas tank. I'm getting it back from paint in two weeks.

I went with a PPG vibrance pearl black on the frame and jockey shift, tank and rear fender got two tone PPG pearl black edging and deep root beer pearl. Some striping since the build is called the ISABELLA for the birth of my duaghter, so it will have her name pinstriped on the rear fender but small and blended in...

I'm sure my discription is not the best but 'll have pic soon!!!!!

I think WCC makes some cool ass shit! Like the aircleaners. Now I personaly might Rock some WCC emblems like neck and axle covers. Maybe battery too but might try to stray away from the rest. Hey as long as your not like these Harley guys who dress head to toe with Harley apperal. Poser! Shit is bad when they even got Harley underwear on. Lol

Good luck on your build stick with it. Plenty of great advice by some great guys on this site. But dont knock the guys who have more WCC parts on their bikes than you do. I see alot of CFL projects on this site and have yet to see one go down the street. And use your judgement I wouldn't talk choppers with a beret wearing vespa owner.

Nope you can build it anyway you like, put any part on it that you like. thats what make them all unique. For me I just wanted the certain WCC parts, Hell bents, WCC air cleaner, FWD controls. Plus at the time the price was right for them all. got them during the sale, like most everyone else. I did buy the WCC Villan tank, but after seeing it on most of everyone builds I ditched it and went with something different. Build away.

Tjay,..........do what ever you want,...........there's room in the cult for all kinds.

With my build, I'm trying to gather as many high quality parts that I could afford, including WCC, Ness, Jay Brake, Metzeler,.....etc,..etc,.......and I have no problem with their logos on any of those parts.

Seeing the frame came with WCC axle covers, neck badge and oil tank,...those 4 logos are obviously visable. The air cleaner is the only other WCC logo on it,.........

I would love to say S+S, Primo, and Baker will be seen on it too but,....we'll see how the funds work out.

Nothing wrong with using mixed brands or home made parts on your CFL build or building a CFL shop bike clone if that's what you want. Bottom line is you choose a CFL frame to build on, so it is the WCC style that you like. No matter what parts you choose to go with, it will always be a WCC CFL. There is no hiding it and why would you want to?
