T-roy's Building a Chopper

Posted 12-30-2008 at 01:11 PM by T-roy
Updated 03-25-2009 at 03:11 PM by T-roy

Steps done so far:

(1) Joined another forum (xlforum.net) username troyboy
(2) Trying to find a donor bike. The Buell 1999-2001 motors are what I am favoring (they are engines in the Buell Lightning and Buell Cyclones) and V-twins (Harley Davidson motors) with a lot of punch and noise
(3) Deciding on a frame (either RedNeck Customs Mutant, Carolina Customs Mobster or Red Barron Monster), with a 250-300 size rear tire
(4) All black color scheme, may have some striping/designs
(5) Found a local mechanic to do most of the electrical, but the rest is up to me
(6) Trying to find custom painters, fabricators to add something unique

    Lost an e-bay auction on a Buell Motor and Trany. This may take longer than anticipated as I have a pretty strict budget. The full bikes are catching a premium due to the number of builders out there, and there seem to be little locally

    Local '99 Buell Cyclone for $3,800. Would have bargained but there was two oil leaks on the engine and ****** that I didn't like.

    Brother is sketching a design around the two frames that I like. One from Redneck Engineering and the other from MC Worx. I like the MC Worx a little more, but it also has a bigger price tag.

    The Local guy just called me and re-offered the bike at $3500. I told him that I'd come get it for $3K, he still hasn't replied.
