Default Project 2nd Time Around

Hey everyone, a friend of mine Pattywagon has got me really into the Sportsters. I helped him build his and now he is returning the favor with mine.

This has started out as a full custom frame that was a rigid to begin with and now we have ventured out to try out the air ride suspension set up.

This is where we're at. If you have any questions just ask.


This is what the bike looked like the first go around.


This is a 3" air cylinder. There is no air ride on the front because the set up will allow it to lay full frame on a 23" 80 spoke wheel.


This is the new rear set up. Swing arm and two drop post for the drop seat.


New risers I built tonight to clear the tank and have good turning radius.


Only showing half of the fender so that 300 shows her every inch of assets.


This is what the bike will represent when finished with the exception of spoke wheels rather than billets.

Bottom picture is a great looking bike. To me, the style of apes just look wrong compared to the overall theme, but other than that, I'm digging it!
