Okay- when I came to look in on this board- the board asked me to post something LOL

Well, I had to put my cars on hold for a bit while I am starting a custom bike biz based on old asian bikes found in poeples back yards- "Crazy LCC" (low cost customs)- as soon as I go and figure out how to get certified by SFI as a NHRA cage inspector- I will be doing custom cars as well.

Here is some pics and a thread I posted on another site about what I am doing now:

Truly a "junk yard/e-bay dog" bike- got the frame off e-bay, well, damn near everything off e-bay- all the motor and stuff from a KZ 1000 (1977) donor bike that was given too me.

total cost of build will be under 1000 bucks it appears- with the exception of tires- will add about 300 bucks or so to the price.

Okay- we started putting the pieces together to kind of mockup close to what the trail would be etc- what you are looking at is a 75 Z1 900 B frame, ZX6 forks, ZX10 rims front and back, with a 170 tire in the rear. Looks like a 8 inch over on the forks, with the ZX10 hieght tires, around 4-6 inches of trail, we will get it closer as we get it mocked up better.
This is what we call the "staged car craft mag shot"

Okay- it is my buddy Travis in the sell out choppers hat LOL- don't hate him, it is Alaska, gotta keep something on his head to keep warm!

Here is my buddy stacey making sure we had the tire hieght right LOL

Here the fellas are doing some more looking apparently- but it is a good shot of how wide a 170 tire looks like on this thing!

Here it is with the shadow tank on it, the old corbin chopper seat (which looks like *** now that the bike is more mocked up- something else will be occupying that area it looks like!

Another fat tire shot- some slight clearance issues with the swing arm, just barely touching up front- and I think the sprockets will line up pretty good.

Last one of the shadow tank and such- the ducktail will stay, and no side covers- the old tank style to hide the electrics. the 5 inch of gooseneck and 36 degrees of rake (about 8* more than stock) - gives the whole front the chopper look- combined with the drag racing cues and wheelbase- the new wheel base will be 71"- almost 10 inches longer than stock.
