I was in Chicago for such a short period of time, I didn't have a chance to ride it. Plus, I'd like my life insurance paid up before I use a jockey shift and foot clutch.

Doesn't look like a suicide. Go for it!

He said he still has a few kinks to work out of it.

It looks pretty sweet though!

Looks really nice, the very definition of "Bobber." LR stops posting on MO, and suddenly he has time to finish the Knuck!

Anybody knowabut the frame? From the photo it looks like a single downtube, but that must be the camera angle. Is it the original?

That must be a custom frame. There aren't any big cast iron junctions.

that's just the angle.

It's all original. It used to have a huge, stretched springer front end on it. He had to have it all re-welded back to stock.

I rode it with the long front-end and it was scary.

Clean. Not Blizing-Yo!-ey.

Hell, I don't like most Customs ('cuz there is no Accounting for taste - although there SHOULD BE), and I'd ride it.

I can't see pictures here at work, maybe at home. Suicides are easy to ride though, just put it in neutral before you stop

Pretty sweet. Makes me want to bring back my old Bonnie rigid. I found it two days ago sitting in a Brit vintage shop in Chamblee. He wanted $3200 for her. I sold it 9 yrs ago for $4k.
