Is there any specific reason behind placing the K&N upright in that position?
It probably will fit in right between the rider's legs.

Interesting attempt to do an Easy Rider imtitation.

Just a few questions/observations...
  1. Does that air filter fit into the rider's crotch? Looks damn uncomforable to me.. And what happens if you brake in a hurry? Ouch....
  2. Is that a sissy bar I see in a couple of the pictures? Looks a bit weird without the pillion seat..
  3. Why are the angles of the engine to the tank and the Ace of Spades box to the seat off kilter? Sorry, but I feel like thats sort of throwing off the whole line of the bike..
  4. Where are those forks from?
I see its raining custom builds these days. Are the cosmetic mods mated to any engine/power mods?

Nice jobbie on the fabricated parts though man.

Cheers

Rahul

More than the bike, I loved the pics and the video shooting, whoever shot them is great at his/her work.

The bike is nice too

here you go guys with some answers..

Riding posture has been changed so air filter comes near the rider's knees.

Forks have been custom made by my friends.

Second video was taken during the testing, so sissy bar position has been corrected later on. Putting Sissy bar is optional.

hope these will answer some of your questions.

BTW thanks to every one for appreciating their work..

LOVIN the first video man! Perfect choice of music and editing. Really makes you feel the passion behind the chopper.

I'm glad I can be the first to post on that video.

Old School Pride indeed

Beautifully done Syed!

Oops, apparently I wasn't the first

One other thing, the video is really a good idea as it shows the bike seems to be much more ride-able than I initially thought possible from the pics. I'm quite pleasantly surprised actually as the rider looks pretty comfortable.

Any details on the exhaust? I'm curious
