Default Tell me about this bike

Hi everybody! I joined this forum because this bike has interested me in building a Sportster. I don't think I can post images, but here is the website I found the bike on. It's a Hide bike, which I assume is a well known builder. It's bike SP-29 http://www.hidemo.net/sportster-custom-gallery/sp-29/

I've never owned a Harley, so I need to do a lot of learning. The website doesn't say all that much about the bike. I'm trying to get a sense of what it would take to build a similar bike, but I don't really know the details of what I'm looking at.

Is that a stock 1994 frame? If it's not stock, what is it, and what mods does it have?

How big do you think that gas tank is? I see a lot of similar tanks on the net, but it's hard to tell how visually large they are relative to the stock tanks.

I really like that oil tank, anyone know of where I could find something similar?


What about the brakes and hubs? Would it be difficult or really expensive to put lace ups on there?

I'd appreciate any info or opinions about this bike that you might like to point out. Thanks.

Lots of sources for those parts. Looks pretty much stock frame to me, though I didn't give it a close look, you certainly could build it on a stock frame.

Thanks for everyone's help, the links and images. Those aluminum fuel tanks are gorgeous, makes me want to buy one so I can put it on a shelf and stare at it all day.
