Yup, a Ness bike for sure. I think he even built a custom helmet to go with it. I've been to his shop, at least the old one. Ran into him and Cory in Santa Cruz one time. Nicest guys you'll ever meet. Arlen was riding one of his creations, had an antique board track look. He's one of those guys who has his own style. If you see the Ferrari Bike, as radical as it looks, he rode it up to The Redwood Run one year.

thanks guys!
I found 1 pic,
here~
http://www.madmyk.com/gallery/Art-of-the-Chopper
but it's a small pic, too small to print for him ~ oh well.

he can't recall what site he found that one on, said he searched bike parts + something and of course lots of girls and bike sites somewhere back on page 15 or so of his search ~ but if he can get back to that site, its a bigger pic. Sucky puter rules at work now, can't save and no email anymore~

if you run across it, let me know :)

(edit~ bugatti 1930's atlantic inspired bike. Still trying to find a decent big pic. but in case anyone reads back, thats what I found~)

I finally pieced together all the parts I need to replace the rear rim on my bike.
Here's the old, ugly, and rusty 16"


This is scary


The only place that I found that laces and trues rims around here, only does motocross bikes and couldn't figure out how to true my rim. I went a couple doors down to Mitch Bergeron's shop to get a little help and he gave me a quick tutorial on truening rims and said I could do it myself. So I did.


This seems to work way better than I thought. After about 6-7 hours, it seems to be pretty fucking close.


Looks damn good with the 19" rim.


Tomorrow I'll be getting the tire mounted and balanced.
What do you guys think?

He's super cool. After the guys at the motorcycle shop across the street seemed too incompetent, I went a couple doors down to his shop, and he immediately offered advice and any service he could do. It seems as he wants my bike back on the road just as much as I do.

He also machined some parts for my v-rod (always asks about it) for free, even after repeated offers to pay for his services.

When I first met Mitch, I was completely unaware of his nationally renowned reputation with bike building, until I recognized the chopper he built for the Bike Build-off show.

lookin' good sheridan. make sure that the rim is dished right. it's no good if it runs true but is 1/2" offset to one side or the other. i'm guessing mitch told you about that but figured i'd mention it.


you passed your test, right?

Good job!Can't wait to see it with a tire on the back. Nice to know there are still guys out there willing to lend a hand and advice and Mitch is one of those good guys. Have you though about drilling the rear brake plate for a real period look (in between the internal-cast gussets, maybe 3/16" holes)? Mitch could probably give good advice about where to and not to drill.(we really need a smilie with a hand drill or drill press)

I went to take my driving test but wasn't allowed due to problems with my registration. I had a lapse in insurance which caused my registration to be suspended. After getting new insurance, the DMV wasn't notified of that and my registration still was suspended.

So, now I have a new driving appointment next week, and also a new insurance policy (old one expired the day after the last driving test). What a headache this has turned out to be.

Finally got that mf'n tire mounted. The bike still is sitting on the jack stand so the rear will be a bit lower once it's sitting on both tires.







I swear to god, the rear rim/spokes/tire situation has been more than a headache. After I started putting the tire on, I then realized that after the tire was mounted, it was never balanced.
So tomorrow, I'll pull the wheel back off an take it back down to the bike shop in Coachella to get it balanced. THEN I can finally ride it.


I only pray that this shit doesn't happen all over again once I replace the spokes and tire on the front wheel.

So, it looks good, huh...?

Thanks!

Very true, very true.

After I get the new front wheel finished, I'll get a new seat made and then I'll ride it around before I tear it down to paint and polish the crap out of it.

Thanks!

With the color, it'll either be black or silver. I'd like to have a hand-formed and polished aluminum tank but if not, I'll just extend the tank and paint it silver.

The exhaust, I plan on splitting up the 4-1 and making two 2-1 pipes on each side to the bike, then adding something similar to these:



I'm going as old skool 50's/60's as possible with this bike.

I hate this game.
I got my wheel balanced and installed on my bike. Everything was peachy until I tried to stop. Now my damn rear brake is inop, which means I get to pull the freakin' wheel back off and fix it.






It's Okay, I still love you, bike.

here is the radian with the clubman bars! the tank is probably too modern for the cafe style, but it allows for me to tuck in my knees.
