    Still No replies... C'mon guys. I'm not fishin for compliments! I want to do this better..... I Really value some constructive critics here. This is a hobby for me. I have never sold a bike that I built. Yeah it is an expensive habit, but WHAT isn't.
    That bike is cool,man.
    What size engine?

    I couldn't do any better than that except maybe fenders and a remote beer keg fuel tank behind the seat. Oh, and make that rear fender bobbed.

    agreed... other than fenders, I can't see anything I would change
  7. Tranny/drivetrain

    There are some detailed pics of this drive set up on another bike that is in progress. Go to Wild in the streets check out Zomby Zack. It has the same exact thing on a different frame.

    Fenders hummmm. I thought about them, can't decide on chrome, black or red. Definate bobber though.

    Honestly, It looks great! Phenominal bike!

    Although....If it where my bike and I had money burnin' a hole in my pocket, which I don't by the way. :-/ I would change the handlebars to a mid size ape hanger, maybe a longer triple tree fork. An all black seat, I really like the one that came with the bike I aquired from Motokruiser, it is a nirve seat with some kind of tribal look etched in the seat. Seeing as though you like red, maybe some red and black leather type grips. Maybe those stubby type fenders. Headlight, Taillight, etc............If you need help spending money, let me know. If you need a son to absorb some of that money burnin' a hole in your pocket...let me know as well. ;)
  9. Kids

    Sorry no don't need any kids. They are all in my garage. Thanks for your concern though. I can't say that I have ever needed that sort of help burnin through dough but I'll keep you in mind. Good ideas too. Like the grips.
  10. did you weld on another bb or create a metal sandwich with bearings to hold the jackshaft> sweet ride>
  11. bottom bracket

    Thanks. I did weld another bottom bracket in the frame to house the jackshaft. There are detailed pics of this technique in the Wild in the streets forum. Z Zack an old school chopper from scratch. This is the same setup.
