I have been into choppers and motorcycles since I was a kid. Having owned and build a few custom chops I decided to build a custom motorized bike. My buddy has a "BroPed" and after seeing photos of it on Facebook I was thinking it was cool but lacked any style. So I set off on a journey to build a badass bike. I started off with a 26" Huffy Nel Lusso Beach Cruiser.
I started with the installation of the Monarch Dual Springer HD Front Forks
I had to modify the frame to fit the gas tank. I finished these sections off by tapering the ends out.
I then finish mounted the tank and installed the 4 inch Motorcycle 1"OD handlebars ( I am using many motorcycle parts for this build as they have the style I am after and built really well and should last a long time) Notice the seat pan. Its a cardboard cutout to make a template for the motorcycle seatpan I have on order.
for the neck I am using a black bmx stem with a 1 1/8" stem adapter. I am also using an aftermarket dirtbike clutch lever and a Biltwell Whiskey Throttle Assembly
I am planning on adding a Black Profile 3pc crank, Black 44t Profile Sprocket, Dual bar kickstand, Front disc brake and a set of Aluminum Magnesium rims.
I am also welding the rack on the back however I am dropping it 3 inches to clean up the lines of the bike. Right now I am awaiting parts and prepping the bike for paint. On assembly I plan on using red and blue loctite for the bolts also I am using rubber washers between every metal washer and metal part and inserting rubber shims in between the motor fins also am going to use a piece of a tube to pad the insides of the motor mounts all in the hopes of calming the rattle from vibration. I am coating the inside of the chain guard and rear fender with rubberized coating as well. I plan to hide all cables to include drilling holes in the handlebars to run them internally and ziptied to the frame. I cant wait to get this hawg finished and rolling down the street. If anyone has any tips, tricks or cool resources I'd be happy to receive them. Happy scooting everyone!
