Idk iy many people on here are into custom choppers or not but these guys build some sick bikes and their dirt cheap when it comes to the custom bike world. Im probably gona have blacksmith for my next bike.

not bad for what they are. though i prefer more bike as i tend to ride further then just up and down a few city blocks. between the cartoonish posture the leaves you looking like you ran into a fence and it clobbered you in the mid rift to the lack of fuel capacity…those trailer queens are not for much other then bar hops and bike shows.September 30, 2010 at 9:34 pm #28588TrialsRiderParticipant
Missing just a few items for my liking; fenders, chain guard, air cleaner, mufflers, rear suspension, front brakes, to name some.October 1, 2010 at 11:31 am #28590TrialsRiderParticipant
This one has rear suspension, shaft drive, mufflers, fenders and paint.
…would this not be a better start point to building yourself a chopper, or am I missing something ?October 1, 2010 at 3:58 pm #28591
Most have rear fenders and you can get them with fron brakes. Some of them on the site have front brakes in the pics and they all have air cleaners except for one witha velocity stack and all parts are mix and match so you can get whichever you want. They also have a softail model on their website and can make any of their bikes as a softail. Im sure you can get them to make a chain guard for you to and a front fender if you really want to. Its not the bike that makes it a trailor queen its the rider that makes it one. Plus the leans arent any worse then alot of the crotch rockets some people on here ride.October 1, 2010 at 3:59 pm #28592
Oh yea. I was also wondering how reliable the buell 1203 is. ThanksOctober 1, 2010 at 5:41 pm #28593JackTradeParticipant
Draw your own conclusions. ; -)
Seriously though, it’s a good powertrain. Earlier ones had some quality-control issues, but I’ve not heard of many problems with the final ones. Buell did the best they could with that engine, and it was impressive what they were able to get out of it, all things considered.
Sure, it was outclassed by its pure sportbike competitors, but for “real world” use, it worked just fine (the 1125 that Buell was putting in its new sportbike at the time the company was shuttered was taking care of that competition gap, but…)
