Inspiration

the original bike that was used in ads for the CFE company, nowadays it's in good hands of Duas Caras in Japan. I believe this above scan was from the latest "Cycle Headz" magazine

The ad that was used in the 70's

I don't know what exact direction I'm going with this, but some key ingredients are there!

Freaky Frank friday!

Are there more CF fenders in Holland then in the rest of the world!?? don't know, but here is another from Niels! Dubbed the Frankenstein (now it needs a paintjob to complement that name Niels!) and is clearly a work in progress and the typical Dutch garden build! Bars are from PangeaSpeed, molded tank by Groovy Cycles, CFF, and some aftermarket oil tank. And the 35mm wide glide trees were already on the bike and were a popular item in the 80s
Plans are to get some lower shocks and maybe a round swingarm, to get that stance right.


Get that wheel in original shape Niels! get that black stuff off the highlighted area!

Nice and heavy molding
Nice spagetthi Niels, I guess you wont do any driving soon, right!??
 
*many children and small animals were harmed with that huge beltdrive* another 90s hickup!

Mod Rod inspiration

the Mod Rod, a well known '23 Ford T built in 1972 was the inspiration for the new header. The far out space scene is the best!! The car's first year it was known as "Oddyssey" before it was dubbed mod rod. Street rod magazine did a nice write up on the whole car here
Pics by Dain Gingerelli

Right side was painted in orange and red hues

Left side was painted in a colder color combo, icy blue!

The way cool space scene! I'm betting we're gonna see more of this style paint soon, with Gen from Love Ear Art taking the lead!

the wild rear consists of a 69 Corvette crafted on the Model T body

Holographic tape, stickerdump still has it!


and voila! Now you know what the inspiration is behind this header!

Sissybar ideas

Maybe not the most pretty version of a swingarm sissy, but certainly a very unique one.

and judging from the price in the ad below; originality didn't came cheap!
