Booby Trap






This is the latest bike project...The Booby Trap. I know the name has been used before, but I dont care....it's a Buell Blast motor in an old sportster chopper frame, an old chrome '70 XL front end that I extended 10" and converted to big twin neck stem, vintage mustang style paughco tank that I took 4" out of the middle, paint is original from the 70's. Narrowed tall Z bars that have been sitting on my shelf for years, just a bunch of old junk and castoff parts from other builds and swap meet finds. I just got all the motor mounts finished, it's rigid mounted now, I should call it the Steely Dan, cause it's gonna vibrate like hell! switched it over to chain final drive too....hope to have it running in a few weeks.
