Tell us about your bike
I bought this bike over 2 years ago to build the sketch I had in my mind.
The bike was a us import with very low mileage (16k) and decided to do a full rebuild.
The frame was modified by a professional Harley builder, I wanted the frame to be a one off and to not be "empty" where the side panels were fitted so I came up with an idea to weld a fixed side panel but that is part of the frame.
Since then it was blasted and powder coated, the wheels were completely stripped, rim and hubs powder coated and build with new spokes and nipples, new brake pads were installed front and rear, new cables all around, custom seat, custom Drag pipes, custom rear fender, new rear bate style brake light, new indicators, new battery, front forks were polished and fully rebuild with new Honda seals and oil, new head and wheels bearings,New chain, new rear shocks.
Fork tubes rechromed by pittedforks.
I wanted the handle bars to look retro and clean so the original switch gear was replaced by mini switches and the electrics are run inside the handlebars for a cleaner look.
Carbs have been vapour blasted and fully rebuild with adjusted jets and tuned up to accommodate the drag pipes and pod style filters.
The engine has been fully stripped and rebuild, it has new seals and gaskets from david silvers all around plus new cam chain tensioner blade, I've got pictures of the engine rebuild that I can send by request.
The bike has about 200 miles since engine rebuild, it starts every time really easily even In the cold, gearbox is strong and there is plenty of power and the bike pulls really nicely.
The paint job has been done by Menno Dek in Germany, he is recognized all over Europe for his work, i will also add to the sale the side panels that have never been fitted, the tank and side panels set is worth a bit if complete.
The only reason I am selling is because I have a new project and need the money to fund it as it is a hobbie for me not a business.
I have spent thousands of pounds in this bike to bring it to what it is now, the money I am asking is way less that I have spent on parts.

I will be coming to the bike shed show in London on the weekend of the 27th or 28th so if you would like to arrange a viewing then let me know.
