Additional InfoTaking inspiration from early factory race bikes, this is completely hand crafted to have the feel of a 1940's concept bike that never happened.

The frame and all components are hand made including all of the frame "forgings". The fuel tank, dash piece, fender, fender struts, and oil tank were hand hammered from flat sheet stock. The front end was a factory Harley VL that we narrowed 1" by machining new connecting braces.

All foot controls hand made and textured to look like forgings and then coated along with the engine components in electroless nickel. Exhaust is completely one off. Basically we started with an engine and transmission and made everything else from raw materials.
