Inheriting someone else's unfinished project is always a little scary. We hold our breath as we try to figure out exactly what halted the project. On this bike we found a worn primary drive chain. It was so loose it was smacking the engine casing and making a horrible noise. #easyfix
Polished and painted.
This photo was taken before a very important lesson was learned. The simple (budget) voltage regulator/rectifier pictured was not only misrepresented on eBay, but also not correct for this application. Learn from our mistake on this bike. A simplified wiring diagram is a key part of your custom build, but don't eliminate a good regulator/recitifier! Especially if you pony up for one of these awesome Antigravity Batteries. We blew two of them up before upgrading our system to the Ricks Motorsports Reg/Rec for this specific year/model.
We build seats just like the Cake Boss builds cakes... one layer at a time. We use 1" rebonded foam because it is dense, and does not break down like the stuff from the upholstery store. It is also very easy to shape. Check it out here:
Our in house photographer has a gift. He also loves to ride and wrench on his own bikes. These are the types of shots that make our builds look as good on social media as they do on the streets! Thanks Nathan!
If you have ever wrapped headers you can appreciate this product from DEI. Their titanium wrap is easier to work with, higher quality, and does not leave a single itchy fiber in your hands!

We designed this seat to match the style used on our Danica CB750 build. It has the classic café bump, but is 100% foam and upholstery. Paired with the clip on handlebars, it gives the bike a racy café look instead of a raw brat look.
