CFL 140 Sportster Build

My CFL is still not finished but I'm already thinking of the next one. My parts are with hot dog for paint. Motor is being rebuilt and repolished by TP. Going to be a big dollar bike. I kinda fucked myself cause now I'm gonna be nervous leaving it unattended in parking lots etc.

It's not done yet but I'm thinking of starting another build. Got a frame and some parts laying around and can pick up a 07 sporty 1200 motor for cheap. Would make for a great donor. Motor, tranny, primary, starter all in one package. Cheap.

So the CFL frame is at Chasis Design getting an oil tank fitted. Might just drop off the motor and have Anthony do a 140 rear and sporty motor mounts. He does good work. I know I can build it for cheap and will have another cool looking bike I can leave in the parking lot stress free.

The plan would be CFL 140 specs. Sporty motor. springer front end.

Lol this was the same reason I shifted away from the high dollar build. That and because I'm a broke fucker. Trying to build a $55,000 motorcycle on a $9.00/hr income is not a happening thing. I want to ride the damn thing sometime during this lifetime AND not be paranoid about leaving it out of sight for more than a few minutes.

Can't wait to see what you come up with, a Sporty powered CFL would definitely be a welcome addition to all the builds we got going on now. And can't wait to see what Hot Dog cooks up for your big budget build.

Sounds like a cool idea. I'm all for low dollar CFLs.

How long has your bike been with Hot Dog? I Just dropped mine off to him yesterday. I know it will take some time but just trying to get an idea of a rough window. I doubt I'll be making a Vegas run for birthday in mid October!

Hey Rudi see if you can rent a Harley when you come to Cali. All I have right now is one bike in rideable condition. We could hook up and ride up Angeles crest or something. Let me know.

He's only had it for 3 weeks. He was waiting on rims from black bike before he started. Since the paint job makes or breaks the bike I'm not going to bug him. I really have no idea what T/A is. He is a true professional and the best in the business but an artist and we all know you can't rush an artist.

My engine has been with TP for 5 months....

Looks like I'm going to proceed with a 140 sporty cfl. Frame is with chassis design and bought a new 2010 sporty 1200 drivetrain. I think we're going to leave the frame as a 2up 38 rake. Obviously change the rear end a bit and motor mounts and RSD. I like a bit of stretch thats what makes a chopper IMO.

I'm looking at this distributor/cam cover by Vulcan. Would make the switch to carb a no brainier. Looks cool. I wonder if hellbents would fit? Anybody have a front or rear view of hellbents mounted? The distributor sticks out a bit so not sure.
