Steve Bruggeman from Annadale, Minnesota, dropped us a few snaps of his '48 Indian Chief that is so clean you could eat off of it. Steve purchased the bike in Sept 2008 and spent almost two years having it restored. The photos were taken at the Donnie Smith Bike Show last year where the red and white Indian took First Place in its class and the Judges Choice trophy. It is truly a classy bike with classic good looks.
Don Harper from Wichita, Kansas, mailed in a photo of his '85 FXR that has an all-new 80ci motor and five-speed transmission. The bike also features an Ultima single-fire ignition, a Tribal hidden axle frontend, a Dakota Digital speedo, and a set of Custom Chrome 80-spoke wheels. Adding to the flare of this FXR is an ostrich skin seat, chrome shocks, 8-inch rise T-Bar's, and a killer marbled paintjob by Kenyon 's Paint in Hillsboro, Kansas.
Jonathan Estrada from San Diego calls this 883 Sporter "Stacy," but don't ask us why. He bought it as his first motorcycle and quickly changed as much of it as he could. It was converted to 1200cc and the rest of the engine was blacked out in wrinkle finish. To get that chopper look, the forks were raked out 5 degrees with 4-over tubes. Küryakyn was used for the grips, levers, and forward controls. Other trick bits include an S&S super E carb, drag pipes, and mini apes. Jonathan got creative and made a mold of a skull and bonded it to the tank before it was sent off to Rob Miller of Rob Miller customs in Lakeside, California, for the hot rod flames over blue true flames paintjob.
