Thanks to Irish Rich for sending the scan of Arlen's Green Machine. I've been wanting to see this better pic for over a decade now. Thanks a lot man!

HUGE inspiration!

Mind boggling, this cool machine. It looks deraked, but is it? adjustable trees? can't tell...
If my bike resembles anything like this one, I'm happy!
yes, I know I look like him also!


Anybody has more pics of this one? please share!!!

It's done...

For now anyway!
Now for only some minor improvements and I think it's gonna be like this for a while...


If you're wondering how it looked like before, check the label "my1976 FXE" below this post

Tuesday Tankday!

2006


old pic found in the archives from 2006, this bike still looks as timeless now as back then. Does it still exist?

The examiner




as with most vintage pics, I like to examine the chick first and get on with the bike! The 12 inch overstock in the narrowed triple trees set the tone up front, while the tank is a true piece of art and seems to be made from a couple of 3.5 gallon tanks. And the Pirelli equipped 18 incher in the rear make one beautiful skinny chopper! I would love to see some side detail shots of this bike...

and yes, offcourse this pic is stolen! that's what the internet is all about!

It all started with an XS

but lately, I haven't been looking at XS's no more, but came across this one that was just to sweet.
Built with all kinds of Harley stuff, but then tastefull and it doesn't pretend it's a Harley! Who know who built this bike? any more pics?


found some more pics on Jene choppers blog, but i need more more more!

The artist formerly known as Tjeerd got the same frame, but then for an XS650 engine. I'll bet they were used for a vast array of engines at the time.
