I thought I would create a build thread, not only to show others the evolution of this bike but also have a place to consolidate everything I have and will do to it. Too many times I forget what all went into a project, and its nice to sometimes go back and look at where it started.

This Bike started at an 05 BMC (big mikes choppers) Hooligan. I bought (stole) the bike from a guy who just needed to unload it to pay some bills. The deal was too good to pass up. The bike is a hardtail, wideglide front end, revtech 100" 180 rear tire and a 21" up front and Carb'd

It started life like this

After riding it for about 20 miles I hated the crappy seat position and the old "factory custom" look. So I Put some clip on handle bars and built a new seat. I made the riding position a lot more aggressive. I called this the style a "Cafe Bobber"

That's a hell of a parking spot bro! Wood floors, nice windows sheesh!

Its a buddies house..Its pretty sick he built it to be able to have his toys downstairs...there are two roll up doors, so its basically a two car garage in his tv/game room.

Then I wanted a cleaner rear so I mocked up a spun fender. My girl hates bikes...but liked this one so wanted to pose for me :)

So I rode it like that for a few weeks and then realized I couldn't carry anything on this bike or go more than 100 miles...So I decided to build a bagger using this platform. I had never seen it done before So I thought why not.

So I built bag mounts and I had to make a new seat pan. Then I dropped it off to have paint done....It was a buddies shop and he was way over his head...he did the worst paint job I have ever seen. I've painted before and would have done a better job in my garage.
I'm not going to post pics of it. But it will have to be complexly torn down and redone over the winter.

The Bike had Yafee Pipes on it which I shortened up But I wanted the sound behind me and was able to fill up some holes within the frame by builing some true Duals for her.

I also was messing around with different handle bars and ended up going with some "FATTY" fatboy style bars.

Plans for the future are:

New paint with some cool graphics
26" front set up
Rear wheel with the lowest profile I can get, to try and lower the back a bit.
Gps speedo mounted on the frame down low
new Air cleaner/velocity stack
I would love to have forced induction..but probably wont do that. I've built a turbo bike before and it was a PITA !!!
Lastly I may put a removable stretched very low profile batwing with a system in it.

Here is the latest upgrade!! I snatched up this incredible wheel set up from Pickard, including one of their wrap fenders- Jevon is the man! He helped me out a bunch and dealt with all my crap !! Anyway here is the first shot, I'll be doing a photo shoot soon and will post more pics.
