A different style of bikes...

I was watching the biker buildoff on Discovery Channel and there was this one builder called Hank Young.
He has a very "different" taste and style when it comes to bikes and choppers. I went to his website and I gotta admit, different is good
Here are some of his bikes












Turns out he also builds hot rods





I guess he's one of the more unheard of builders, but he's definitely got skills and imagination.








Mike

Thats that one guy's bikes that did the fire-fighter themed bike on great biker build-off......?
I Think it was on the episode vs a guy named chica?
He does some nice old sytle bikes IMO.

Also think he won that episode with the firefighter theme vs a new badarse looking chopper.

It's the latest style coming out of the west coast. There fashioned after the race bikes of the 20's and 30's called Board track racers. So named as many of the tracks were a board surface instead of dirt or pavement.

I didn't see that episode but it is really great that there are builders getting away from those goofy looking steam roller back tires.
I love the look. I always wanted to build a bike along those lines with an 18 inch rear tire. I had a 46 ULH well under way once but never got it finnished (long story) I was bulding it with a VL springer and single down tube. Also doing the Sturgis paint scheme. All black including the rims and spokes, with orange pinstriping, and a black engine with silver edges on the fins and polished side covers. I was using a CR tank.

What the heck is with the exhaust wrap that he has on those pipes? Why not just coat them and leave them alone?

Exhaust wraps....

I think it's an old school thing to do rather than for comfort. Hot Rodders in the 50's and 60's used to wrap their headers with them and people that are building bikes now and like to keep them old school do it for the sake of looks and nostalgia. World Biker Buildoff participant Mitchell from Exile Bikes built a very nice looking nostalgic satin black chopper with whitewalls and red wheels and he put exhaust wraps on it and it really looke hot!
