Additional Info

This bike was taken in on trade in very rough shape. The guages were mounted upside-down, the tank was held on with leather straps, and we saw a gem just dying to be rescued! We started with the calssic Super-Trapp 2-2 high mount race style exhaust and a Screamin' Eagle air filter element. Since the tank was trash, we ordered a repop peanut tank and had it finished in white with the red, white and blue #1 Harley decal ala Evel Kneivel. Along with the Storz Flat-Track tail section we added a set of Moto-inspired bars and stripped all of the extras off of the bike (it had covers everywhere!) and lightened it as much as possible. Not to leave well enough alone, we aimed to have a bike that handled well as well. We located a set of late 60's era Sportster aluminum wheels which will be fitted to the stock hubs (HUGE thanks to Buchanan Spoke and Wheel) and a steering stabilizer to reduce unsprung weight and keep the wiggles away. Pairing '68 Sportster rims with modern hubs the guys also installed floating rotors and a chain drive conversion, installed SuperTrapp high pipes and other gears to create a motorcycle that not only looked good, but handled great as well. The show-stopping paint-job was done by Jody Perewitz, in the Evel Knievel style to accentuate the Flat Track roots of the bike.
