Eric's Shovel

Built this bike for this guy Eric, a good friend of mine.

actually its finished about 7 years ago

we just rebuilt it again about a year a go.

laser cutted logo on a leather

clean handle bar

can you see the similarity of the split rockers,L carb and the magneto?
we even choose the kicker pedal for a reason.

got this Tail light from my friend Raymond...I dont know from what kind of car it came from

the fork was my old collection, but I just had to put it on this bike

my favorite angle

my friend Arian13 from the Famous band Seringai gave his art work on the gas tank and the fender... love it!!

long fork rules!

yeah its a wide tire...but its a big engine so we kinda need it.

this bike is an instant fun machine!!
I will post more detail pics soon!
thanks to Tigor for the pics!!

FN four

my friend Irjanto from Surabaya sent me pics of his bike.
its an 1909 FN four.
yes, FN the guns company.

I stole some data from the net:
In 1899 FN made shaft and chain driven bicycles, and in 1900 experimented with a clip-on engine. In December 1901 the first 133 cc single cylinder motorcycle was built, followed in 1903 by a shaft driven 188 cc single cylinder motorcycle. In 1904 a 300 cc single cylinder motorcycle was produced. In 1909 the two speed singles had camshafts to open the inlets, instead of the earlier “automatic” valves. Starting from 1912 the singles had a hand lever clutch and foot pedal rear brake.

In 1905 the first 362 cc shaft drive in-line FN inlet-over-exhaust four cylinder motorcycle appeared, designed by Paul Kelecom. This was the world's first manufactured four cylinder motorcycle. By 1907 the Four engine had grown to 412 cc, and that year's single cylinder 244 cc FN motorcycle was the first bike with a multiple ratio belt drive system, using a patented variable size engine pulley. For 1908, the US Export model began manufacture. The Four had a 493 cc engine, and in 1910 that became 498 cc. This bike weighed 75 kg (165 lb) dry, and could do 40 mph (64 km/h).The 1913 Fours had a two speed gearbox and clutch, at the rear of the shaft drive, and bicycle pedals were permanently replaced with footrests from then on. For 1914 the FN “Type 700” 748 cc Four was released, with the gearbox at the rear of the engine.

Dyna Rules!

My friend Adhi with his 09 Dyna.
we use a cafe fairing on it,change the front wheel with 21 inch and some minor changes.
but we're gonna chop it and will doing some more fun stuff on this one real soon!

the return of the Super Glide

in 1971, Harley produced this beauty...its called Super glide but many call it a boat tail.

35 years later in 2006, they produced the anniversary of Dyna with the same paint scheme...very nice bike.
I always wanted to build one from the first time I saw it.

with a bot tail off course!
I don't know much about computer graphics mambo jumbo but I remember it was a long night in front of my computer...dreamin someday I will chop an Anniversary Dyna!

Lucky me...she came to my shop..
it was one of the first Rocket motor company project

you see that 35 badge on the oil tank?
yes,its an Anniversary Dyna.

stock engine was enough just added a pro tuner,good brakes and better suspension.

clip on handle bars,stock tank,a bit wider wheels and a boat tail..that's enough.
its a fun machine,easy to handle,quick response and I can stop whenever I want.

my friend took this picture about a month ago...and its the only photo of it that was taken from a real Camera, others just took from my cheap Blackberry.
I don't carry a real camera and take some nice pictures of my built.
I wish I could, but I don't have a nice Camera...
I will buy a nice camera someday,but that means Im gonna need to learn how to use it.
but its been fun lately, some new projects on the work and a lot of things going on.
I will post more of this bike soon I get a real photos.

more pics of the Rocket Dyna

got some emails asking about this Dyna, so here it is:

yes, it is a stock frame.
I only cut the seat section and mount a single shock on the stock swingarm.

I have some Mustang tank laying around my shop.
so I cut one Tank and split it for the gas tank.
and then I cut another one and use it as the tail that also holds the battery and electrical.

since its a Dyna, its got oil pan under the tranny so we got free room under the seat.
Oh ya, I was working on a V rod when I started to mount the girder front end on this Dyna...
So I was just playing around and mount the V rod fairing real close to the tire, and since its a girder...its possible to mount it real close because the fork moves together with the tire.

in this photo you can see that I used two similar tank, I just chopped it differently.
I moved the brakes o the left by using Sprocket brake with stock belt.

I wish I have more photos, but we already did some photo shoot for some magazines so stay tuned!
will post it soon!
