The Machine

    The concept of “The Machine†came from countless hours of conceptual drawing and Cad design. Wanting to construct a bike like no other helped conceive the idea of a frame using lightweight aluminum and absolutely no welds. Strong and light, using the motor and transmission as a stressed member, the frame has no flex. Every part is precision machined from 6061 T6 aircraft aluminum to ensure a strong precise frame. The engine is an 80 inch Harley Davidson with a five speed FXR transmission.

    The front end reminiscent of an old “Indian Scout†and inspired by the race bike “Brittan V1000″, is a girder type front end also made of billet aluminum. In the rear, there is a brembo single sided swing arm with matching brembo 17″ wheels.



  2. thats a pretty funky looking bike. What gives with the side stand though? The stand has its own stand... will it fall over without it.

  3. Reminds me of one of these: :wink:

  4. Re the sidestand - Looks better for the pics.
  5. Tough looking bike, excellent custom build.
  6. Is it just me, or does that rear swingarm/wheel setup look like it came straight from a 955i speed triple?
