More Tingler!

Here's a couple more shots from the mock-up day when our buddy Matt, of Rush Cycles, brought over the freshened up ironhead motor he generously helped us out with.  The frame, tins, and oil tank are out for paint from Toon Town Bob as we speak.  This one's gonna be tough to give away!  Scroll down a couple posts to check out some more in-depth progress photos from Cal.  Definitely can't thank Cal, Joe, and Benny of Retrofit enough for their phenomenal fab work and help / inspiration with the show.  Once again, Visionary Cycle Products donated the gorgeous 21" aluminum front wheel, Buchanan helped out with some quality stainless spokes, and our go-to local shop guy, Ed at Unique Cycle, generously threw a 21" Speedmaster, tube, strap, and rear brake shoes our way to top it off!  This is not one to be missed!
 
Willis has been doing it right and ripping the Cocaine Bandit around like crazy, ever since he won it at Strange Days 2; right on!!!
Pipe fitment.
Joe's Pan, "Mary Jane."  Chopperfection.
Ken and Cal's trusty steeds.
Stay tuned, paint is on the way!

Strange Days 4: Tingler Updates! It Takes a Village To Build a Chopper!

Time for a Strange Days 4 "Tingler" mega update post!!! This bike is going to some lucky winner at Strange Days! The real challenge has been trying to use as much stock Sportster parts as possible. A Sportster chopper that still looks like a Sportster!



Ben nailed it with the custom oil tank with trick battery compartment that will house a small 4 cell ballistics battery, 2 breakers, and switches.


 We bent up a new seat pan that needed some special fab to fit the frame nice. Carl Miller will be doing the seat again this year. He has done the seats for the two previous bikes and does outstanding work!







 Good to Carl! Start stitchin' up some hide! 

We have the stock rises with an extra 2" of rise added. Just need some welding and some paint and they are good to go.


 Ken and Chris put the wheels together.18" Firestone ANS for the rear and 21" Avon with stock drum for the front. Thanks to Eddie from Unique for the front tire and other goodies!

Man what a stance!




Matt Rush of Rush Cycles came by with our motor! It doesn't even look like the same motor we gave him a few months ago. Plane and simple, Matt knows his shit. We'll be doin burnouts for sure.


Fitting up some XLR pipes cause they just look so damn good!


Woof!








We brought the Tingler outside for some fresh air.


The ol'man approves! Don't forget this bike could be yours!
Strange Days July 11th-13th.
