Latest build - the grey 2.0

Our latest build we went a little bit further than before and taking the classic lines of a Harley peashooter we came up with a beastly version for our customer Oklahoma. The build revolves around a Honda gx160 motor with electric starter with the frame constructed to hug it. Knowing we were going to run 3" wide rims we had to make the rear stays wide enough for the hub and to align with the transmission. The overall color scheme the customer was inspired by the original grey we built a few years ago, but just revamped. For the fork we fabricated a leaf spring style fork with optional mount for headlight. And for the gas tank it took many options before landing on the vintage style Honda cb steel replica tank but it just fit the whole thing perfectly. This is a bike we have added to our arsenal and feel free to hit us up on quotes for cost.

5 day death build

5 day death build - 5 days, 3.27 hp kawasaki gokart motor, micargi royal modified frame. An almost impossible task to get a newly designed motorbike ready for the shiny side up Behind bars show in san jose ca in 5 days. These were uncharted terrirtories for us. Customizing a frame dealing with a stretch frame and taking an old engine and getting it to work in this new setup.However with due diligence, and creative thinking we built our first stretch cruiser in imperial style. From chopping the micargi royal frame's top tube and bottom tube to have a gooseneck and more rack to creating a custom engine mount and getting it started this build seemed to be overwelming from the start. This is not fully finished yet but we are close to the finishing stages.

The grey

Going out to customer Skylar in Oklahoma. He did his homework, asked for a specific color scheme and engine set up and all we did was made it happen! This bike uses a 4 stroke honda engine with a $300 q-matic transmission. On a long stretch, this bike is capable of doing 45-50 mph! The best and funnest build so far. Thanks Skylar!
