Thanks: First off, Mom for putting up with my addiction to these things and all the noise that goes along with it. Blue @ www.bluekustoms.com For hook'n a brotha up on the paint and being good friend. The crew at Cycle World and Salvage for the hookup on parts and the shop space to work on it. My girlfriend Michele for being there for me, especially when this thing acts up, and also for her killer photo skills. And anyone that held a wrench while I built this project.

THE STORY

I picked up this bike as a front end wreck 3 years ago. Durring the weekend of hurricane Ivan I striped the bike down to the essential items and tossed the rest in the bin. The forks were tacoed, bodywork trashed and the wheels bent beyond repair. I remachined the steering neck and slid in the TLR front end. Also durring that soggy weekend I made the adjustable subframe and flat bars. The bike was pretty basic for about a year as it serves as a daily rider. I did some little cleanup stuff here and there on my days off. Eventually I got tired of it being another trashed stunt bike and stripped it back to the frame and got serious, I had my buddy Blue spray everything Gloss Black. Soon after I got a hold of the VFR swingarm and came up with the idea of fitting a car rim. After spending a week measuring and calculating I started sourcing parts. Another buddy of mine had a pair of car rims hang around his place that just happened to be what I was looking for. Everything went together pretty smoothly and still rides and handels just as well as any factory bike. The motor has a mild tune. Enough to keep the power right were I like it. For a street bike it's perfect. Plenty of power all through the revs and a big chunck of it right in the middle. It's still my daily ride so I wanted to keep it semi reliable. With over 80,000 miles it's done a damb good job. I coulbn't ask for a better bike. It's a constantly evolving project. I've changed the overall look and performance of this bike at least 3 times. It's been my life. I've had plenty of ups and downs along the way. mechanicly, accidentaly, leagaly, but it's always there waiting for me to throw a leg over and crank the key.

holy crap!! that's a pocketbike tailsection?? that's awesome!! i'd have never thought of that, lol.

just out of curiousity, do you have offset specs for that rear wheel? i'm helping a friend build a crazy custom with a 20x8 rear wheel off a car (100 spoke yo! lol) , but haven't gotten as far as ordering a rim yet because we wanted to make sure of the offset. using a hawk gt arm (because there's no linkage) with a vfr hub, so it should be pretty much the same, since the hawk/vfr have the same offset rim.

It is not the critic who counts, not the man who points out how the strong man stumbled, or where the doer of deeds could have done better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena; whose face is marred by the dust and sweat and blood; if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly; so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory or defeat.

sweet, thanks!!

i'll have to get you a pic of what a 20" rim looks like on a single sider. 'tis crazy looking! we're building the frame from scratch, so we may end up just offsetting the whole swingarm to make it all line up.
