I made these foot controls for Steve's slab side shovel. Alot more comfortable and better looking than the forwards that were on it. And pretty sexy with all those speed holes. The shifter side is made to clear the old tin style primary cover, but he just didn't have it on there at the time.
Some of you may already know Pete from getting tattooed by him at Capitol City Tattoo or buying his Wisconsin Skinny clothes. Well this is his 2005 Sportster that we cleaned up for him. We started with some struts, that was the easy part. Then, we chopped up the rear fender and used a limp dick tail light. After that, we made a seat bracket, added a Biltwell solo and their handle bars too. Under the seat we beat out a nifty little brain box cover out of aluminum. We also made the backing plate, out of aluminum, for the cheepo $12 air cleaner. Up front, we removed the eyebrow and made a bracket to use the stock headlight flipped upside down.
Had a good day of riding with crazy Arron from Illinois. Rode to his hill climb club's house. It ruled! Broken bike parts and pix dating back to the 1930's. Raced back to WI to see David Allen Coe cause we met some guy that put us on the list. Missed him ..... drank beer and had a good time!
We Built this last winter. 1978 Suzuki GS 750 got completely stock and kind of running for $330. Made the hardtail, rear fender, sissy bar, handle bars, foot pegs, seat hanging from '51 ford PU leaf springs and dual 2 into 1 exhaust. We rebuilt the top end(thanks Steve) made that HD tank fit(thanks Darryl) and did the paint(thanks Chris).
So, my buddy, BSA shows up on his clapped out old shovel for some help with electrical problems. As we're pullin off the tanks he says "there might be a crack in the frame". I say whatever, we'll weld it up when we get the tanks off. This is what we found!!!! In Lost Cause style, I made him do most of the work while I drank beer. Couple of jacks, some not so gentle persuasion, a few clamps, welding and then some fish plates should get him though the summer till we can fix it proper.
Yes, that is a trophy full of cheese. Eric got it for being the most bad ass! One day back from a month in Europe, he comes on the ride. His bike breaks, he fixes it and finds us 3 hours later en route back to Madison.
Darryl got the helmet, cause his crazy ass needs it!
