OK,OK, it's yet another sportster chopper on the blog- but when it's this good, who cares? I mentioned I'd be bringing some pix of a great bike I'd spotted round at my parts supplier, and here it is. It was built by Southampton's Attitude Customs- generally better-known for f*t tyre stuff- but they've nailled the classic look on this beauty. I'm not sure if that's a Flyrite frame, but it's deffo got a 1200 motor, S+S carb, shotblasted cases, and a heap of other cool stuff. Twisted chrome bars, brass risers and shift peg, nicely done heatwrapped pipes all look great, along with vintage avons and a very DicE-mag inspired squirt job. 'Scuse the crumby phone-pix, and I couldn't really get a good ancle on account of all the bikes in the yard.
You might notice a sidecar rig beneath a tarp. Ian (the parts guy) scored a shovel from Iran for 1500 sobs and is planning on a combo project. Screw ebay, that's what you call a proper deal.
