BUILD DESCRIPTION

First build completed in 2010. Experimented with making the logo 3d, cut the fenders a bit, spring seat, blue led accent lights, custom cable guide, custom choke lever on right side of frame, nuke switch for leds, cut tabs, filled in welds and tank fin, etc... It doesn't do 100mph. Built to look decent and keep up with Chicago traffic. Sort of a low rider meets moped thing.

John Walski: Although I just sold this bike, it will always be my build. Now i can focus on the next one.


Tony Cruz: Bye bye 3d!!!!!


John Walski: I pushed body filler through a rubber stencil and covered it with fiberglass resin. I used 2 separate stencils so the letters and the scrolling had different dimension. If given the opportunity to do it again, I would do it a bit different now. The logo isn't perfect, in that it definitely has a made by hands feel versus a machine pressed thing. Glad you like it. It's for sale if you really love it...


Maize Diffley: Thats super rad you kept the newport font. i love it. what did you use to make the 3D logo?
