Building 2 Pro Street Twin Cam Choppers
« on: Saturday, October 10, 2009. 02:52:51 PM. »
Will my Two Kids Honda Shadows have pushed me over the edge. We have a Big family and at Sturgis one day we had twenty bikes and my kids were the only ones riding Hondas. At the time it was all they could afford. Thunder Mountian Custom Cycles was shutting there doors so I called a guy and said do you have enough parts to build two choppers and he said he had about 80% and that was good enough for me. So I am build two twin cam B. One is a RSD 120B 6speed Jim and the other is a 107B RSD 6 speed JIM. Both will be FI AND Run 280 to 300mm tires. I will update as they progress. Got to Have the red one done by Christmas. Both engines have had to have the cases split and totally redone.

Back from powder coating





The guy's work who pinstriped this free hand has been featured in a book on penstripeing

Great way to spend quality time with your boys/men. I'm thinking 46G for the 107", and 546 for the 120". :wink: Easy hot starts, and quiet operation will be a great introduction to "our world". :up:

Set a record here today. 18 degree low. Feels like January here in Denver, To cold to even go in the garage and work.

must be why Daytona Harley had them in Sturgis on sale for $19,000.00 Pretty good buy. I think they only had a standard TC engine though but still really a nice ride for the money.

I am not looking forward to winter. We didnt have a good summer in New England this year, as it rained way to much. Now I fear it will be a long snowy winter to boot. Already feeling too cold for October.

I love the pinstripes. Looks awesome.

Thanks for the pic. Always nice to get an initial view of what it is going to look like.. So this is a kit bike?  Or is it a production bike that has sort of been turned into a kit?? Max

These were production bikes with almost complete Harley parts. Another custom chopper place that bites the dust because of the economy .

Go fast, when did they go belly up? I used to wrench at a dealer that sold those. Nice parts they used and run great when dialed in. Check the pulley tq on the RSD trannies, had a few come loose early.
