Work in Progress
On this page is a display of bike projects that are yet to be completed, both of ours and of our customers.
Our LSR bike.
Based around a Weslake V-twin. Read the full story here:
Sumos LSR bike.
Heres something you dont see often!, or ever before, probably. Sumo's going to Bonneville in 2012 and he's found a class to run in where the record looks beatable with this astonishing blown twin-Panther machine. Got some work to do yet of course, but we set him on his way with this chrome-moly chassis.

Phil's mutant sporty
Seen here under construction at Andy Harris Custom Bikes, this is a frame we made early 2010. Looks like good progress is being made here.

The V8 bike
Its a little Daimler 2500cc engine. Obviously too small to use in a car, We had to build a bike around it. The engine was originally designed by Edward Turner in the late 50s when Daimler was still part of the BSA group. I think its reasonable therefore to refer to the bike as a BSA rocket 8!
Now finished and on the road.
Pilkys XLST Buell
We made this sportster softail frame for John in 2009. Here it is as a dry build.
Reckon it wont be long before its up & done now.
Phixers FXR softail
Phixer (Mark) is one of the Brit Chopper team.
Wanted to build a HD chop. Approached us on Chris Irelands suggestion.
We supplied almost everything, including the drivetrain.

Hossack harley project
This is an in-house build-up. Wanted to explore the application of Norman Hossacks front-end ideas to a proper-chopper. The shock will run horizontally. Main fork piece is a one-piece U-tube.

Daz was going to build a Yam Wildstar based chop, but when he turned up with the bits, much to our surprise, he'd brought along a TR1 lump instead. Whatever; we dont mind what engine you want to use!
Macen from Norfolk Chopper Club's new project
Macens rebuilding a mid 90s Road King into this chassis which we did circa xmas 2008/9. Its a 1.625" tube rigid with a similar jackshaft arrangement to Jims bike below.
Macen is running 230 x 15 tyres front & rear. Widening those fenders took ages!

Jim from Essex Chopper Club's new project.
Considerably less radical than his previous chop, Malice in
Wonderland, this Kwak Zephyr based project was fat 230 avons front & rear on
Jims own rims, (they actually measure 270 fitted).

Rubbermount sportster softail.
At last, we finally get around to (almost) being able to offer
a softail to take the 2004-up rubbermount sportster engine. Regular customer and
goodguy Nige brought us an engine to work with. along with forks & wheels so
we could do him a rolling chassis.

Micks big-twin Mutant
For some reason, no-one seems to have done a mutant style bike
with a big twin lump. Not that we've seen anyway!
They dont get much odder than this; We'd never seen a Yan
TDM850 lump before, but Mark had one and conceived this project.
Murrels's new project
Murrels is in the Suffolk NCC and has been thinking about
doing a proper job on his softail for a while. We did the big-tube rigid frame,
oiltank, fender (oops, sorry Murrels, mudguard!), seatbase, 'bars Wide
yokes, disc spacers etc to his spec.
Seen on the 'rigids' frame page. We supplied the frame, oiltank, seat & rear fender. Now finished, and on the 'bikes' page.
Haighy sold this on. Was completed by Graeme Souter. See it on the Hall of fame page.
Duncan from Deftrapz's new project.
Frame as seen on the rigids page. Here it is with forks & wheels
The KH zero sportster created a lot of attention, particularly
from one customer who brought in his dismantled BSA A65 project, to be re-done
in the zero style.
Nigel came to us via Andy at Harley Tech. He showed us photos
of a US built frame, and we basically copied it. We also made the yokes and the
Grahams Softail Sportster.
Now complete. See it on the bikes page.
