Additional InfoThe Jefferson features a hand formed fuel tank and rear fender which have been polished and nickel plated along with the custom exhaust pipes. Other hand formed parts include the handlebars, oil tank, chain guard, springer front end and plug wire guides; all finished in copper.
Electrical components on the Jefferson are hidden below the frame rails in a custom battery box. From there, the small lithium battery supplies power via vintage cloth-wrapped wiring routed externally throughout the bike.
The stock frame has been converted to a hardtail while the neck has been raked to make high-speed riding more stable with the springer front suspension.
Dubbed "The Jefferson" by my wife, noting the bikes nickel finish and our coined President.
