Just to build something unique that appealed to my taste, which is clean and simple. And unlike most builders, I have an aversion to chrome! Black is the new black.
I’ve wanted to learn to build custom motorcycles for 20 years or so, but never had the time until I retired. After 30 odd years sitting at a desk producing nothing you could hit with a hammer, I was inspired by the combination of art and engineering that building a bike afforded.
I think the seat is pretty cool, and the rear light I fabricated to make it a pretty unique feature. I wanted the working parts to be black, so I spent many many hours cleaning and prepping the engine, transmission and primary then sprayed them with VHT flat black paint from rattle cans
I try all the time to be slightly different to what other builders are doing whilst not going too radical
That so many other bikers want to talk to me about it
Clean lines. Simple looks.
