Default SBS Project - Sportster Chop w/ Lots of Photo's

Well, we vacillated a lot over the last few months on what our Project bike would be for this winter.

It's been decided.


Going to build a Sporty, from the frame up-


Goals are for it to:

Run, Ride, Look & Sound Better than when we started...AND for it to be One of a Kind!



This will be our 7th project bike in the last 8 years, and it is our most ambitious.


Photo's will be taken, all along the way, and posted in this thread.

We'll be taking it down to the frame, chopping the back end off, converting it to a hardtail.


I'm 58, with a bad shoulder (and a few other aches & pains) but am planning on this being my daily rider, so even though it will be a hardtail, my goal is to make it a smoother ride than a stock Bagger.

We've already got the bones of it sketched out, along with a lot of ideas...but I am sure we will be developing parts along the way too.

First order of business is to get a donor bike, which should be done within the next few weeks. (See WTB ad HERE)

We already have a few parts laid out, and some more on the way to us.

As soon as the donor bike is in our hands, we will be tearing it down to the frame, taking pics along the way and posting them up here.


Should be fun!

I am chomping at the bit to get started on this!

Have to get the Softail, that is on the lift, done and off of there.

Have my eye on a few Sportys for donor bikes, but still looking around.

Got some parts on their way to us, and a ton of notes on what I want to fab up.

Had a great time meeting up and riding with you this summer . Please look me up again when you get back to montana next year. If Im in town ill for sure meet up again. Much respect . Hope you and your wife are doing great . Take care brother. Rick
