Build-off bike

The chopperunderground website is having their own Biker Build-off going on from 1 Jan to 31 March 2012. There is a wide spectrum of bikes entered, from single cylinder two-strokes to water cooled big bores. I am building a 97 Honda 750 UJM rigid chop out of spare parts I've got laying around. The original bike cost me an XS650 chopper frame and $100.00. The bike had 4400 miles on it then. I made up a rigid frame, shortened and chimneyed an old Paughco tank, rolled and welded a rear fender, made up a seat pan and had it covered, made up some pipes from scrap, molded and painted the frame and made some handlebars. Have to finish the bodywork and spray can the tins and wire it up. I want to ride it to Daytona next month.

Showin off at my age...

Really doesn't pay. Out ran some geriatric bagger riders Sunday and burnt the clutch up. Yeah, it was worth it.
