Thanks: First off, Mom for putting up with my addiction to these things and all the noise that goes along with it. Blue @ 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.


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.​

LOL, Haelo, relax man. The voting hasn't even started bud. You may be suprised how this goes. I have a feeling this month is gona be closer then you think. I think the busa is pretty cool, so do a lot of us. You're deffinatly in the contention for this one.

Thanks guys. Appreciate it.
Thatnks for the props everybody. I appreciate it.

Skrooz, Deffinatly get some pics up. That sounds neat. You using the 20inch motorcycle tire for it?
Headlight is actually carried through Custom Chrome. Runs about $100 retail. The light is actually fairly bright. And yes you're not going to out drive it at typical freeway speeds.

CC carries 4 versions of it. it comes in black or chrome and there is one that comes in a nice bezel with your typical HD bottom mount. Also black or chrome.

Parts Unlimited also carries this version.

There's also a Square version.
The light has a very wide spread of light.
As a cheap example...

instead of this pattern... \ /

it has more of this pattern... ( )

meaning the light spreads out to the sides a lot more then a standard light. And has more of a circular beam. At night I can see the road to the left and right of me very well for about a good 25-30 feet. And at least 75-100 feet out in front.
LOL, That's what I was going for. Thanks AB.
