PostSubject: What's YOUR style?   Sat Nov 06, 2010 2:44 pm

Looking at different people's bikes, you can see some people have a particular style or setup that they like or prefer. I thought it might be interesting to hear what each person's particular things are that they prefer or are more likely to do with a bike.
These are my ones:

drag bars or straight bars
sprung seat
lower bike
clean fender
side mount plate & taillight

These dont have to be hard and fast things that you would always do, just common themes that you've picked up. (On the upcoming project Im gonna leave the apes on, for a change)

I'm all about the apes, no front fender and jockey shift.

side mount and lowered/hardtail should be standard

Ok I'll play, These are the plans for the next build.
I really want to build something traditional looking But with a more modern drive train, With me so far Question

16" to 18" apes.
Stock length factory Springer (that one you have Irish will do nicely buddy)
Rigid frame, No stretch and stock rake.
Stock size sporty tank.
15" rear 21"front wheels.
100" Fatvo motor and five or six speed box.
Short rear fender, No front fender.
And no fruit or Bull Sh t, Strictly only stuff that makes it run hard and stop even harder. THE END.
Oh yeah and all donations kindly accepted. Laughing
AHHHH AND A JOCKEY SHIFT of cause (aye Shaun Wink )
Need a picture ???????? THEN TRY THIS

Sucker Punch Sally's build the coolest bikes. Twisted Evil

i was reading a mag with some sucker punch Sally's bikes in it recently, yeah I reckon they really hit the spot with how they do their bikes, couldn't really find a model in their lineup that i didnt like.
i reckon if u were buying one from them it would be hard to choose.

Mean. I reckon the coolest thing about that bike is the fact that his bars are longer than his forks. Must be about 35 inch apes I reckon.
