If you’ve followed this blog for a while you’ll know that I just love builds like this. Ted Brecheisen sends in more proof that you don’t need big bucks to build a fantastic bike. I used to own a stocker as a kid. Never imagined it could look like this!
Great blog site. Love your two stroll one also. Have 2 excellent RD350’s (stockers)
Here are a couple of pics of a 78′ Honda Hawk 400t the we did over the winter. It was a throw away we retrieved and started chopping. It’s low budget but cam out pretty good. The swing arm has be extended 4″ to get a little more wheelbase. The front old Goodyear DT dirt track tire was the start of the inspiration to head to the dirt track look. Tank is a 88 Yamaha Virago 250, license plate bracket is two 5hp Briggs connecting rods. Handle bars awe from a Yamaha ATV. Rides great and has good handling manners. Cheap fun!
Awesome Ted. Thanks! And if you get a chance I’d love to see those RD350’s! Always in the hunt for good 2-stroke pics for the other site!
Honestly forgot where I got this. If anyone knows where it’s from please let me know so I can give a proper shoutout. Oops… spoke too soon. Photo is titled “Underground Bobbers”. Looks to be these gents HERE
Randy Hooks sends in this beauty. No description of the build but the bike pretty much speaks for itself. On a side note the originals photos were huge and of outstanding quality. Beautiful build!
Thanks Much Randy!
Reall cool bike without breaking the bank
Don’t know why exactly but in my eye this bike just has a certain authenticity to it. It’s kust “right” somehow.
Check our FAST BIKER over in the links.
“a blog for/about bikers that like to hit the throttle hard,instead of cruising slowly on the road. It`s about light,fast,hardcore choppers.”
Actually take some time and check em all out. There’s a lot of great stuff and great folks over there doing it up right! All Good stuff.
These are getting extremely popular and I think it’s the best I’ve seen yet. I can’t see a single thing on this bike that I would change. Right down to the flatslides and disappearing pipes.
Almost forgot. If you like the Japanese Customs go check out JF Sebastians blog “Japanese Bobbers” Some really great stuff there.
Complete with Stromberg Carbs!! WOW!
