  • Custom Sportsters

    post up any pics you got of Custom built sportsters.

    I don't have any here in the house, but I will post some up later. Ironheads or evos, or even any restored or customized K-models.

    I know Croc has a couple custom built sportsters (well a buelster is one of em) who else has anything

    Well, this is mine that I built last year.It has a hand made oil tank , made from and old 5 lb fire extinguisher, made to look like a 500 lb bomb that the P51 's used to carry. Hand fabbed sissy bar, and foot , and shifter pegs made form real 20 mm , and 50 cal shells from that era. The tank was custom painted by me , using the colors form an actual P51 fighter plane. The seat was hand fabbed and covered by myself also. I built the exhausts using puieces that I save . I started building the exhaust from the head to the tip,using cut bends for the final result. I plan on riding it this Summer, then selling it,hopefully to a good home. Then, it will be onto building a one of a kind Evo trike with narrow rear wheels and tires.

                    Cool ride,

                    If anyone need a old fire extinguisher for such a project, please let me know.

                    I have steel and aluminum ones. We used the aluminum ones for the cover on the drive shaft of the front engine dragster.
                    They polish up great.

                    Just pay the shipping and it is yours.

                    When I wear an "Old Navy" shirt, it is not a fashion statement, it is just a statement.
