Additional InfoThis bike is built by people who do that on hobby basis, not as professionals. For instance, most of the metal fabrication, such as frame, triple trees, swingarm, aluminium gastank & oiltank, is made by Kegny Karlsson (KDK Performance). Painter Bo "Master" Jensen is a well known Swedish custom painter who has painted all of my custom builds and helped in many other ways. Engine rebuilt and modified by Mectec includes H-D -67 cases, STD heads, Truett & Osborn stroker flywheels, high compression pistons, rods and oilpump by S&S, JIMS lifters, rocker covers from Robbans Speedshop, modified CV40 and Sifton Avenger camshaft. Of course, kick-start only...
