Slick and twisted. That’s this Buell-based rigid chop in a bright red nutshell. Dan “Cabana Dan” Rognsvoog’s custom scoot seen here packs a 2001 Buell Blast powerplant as the beating heart of a chopper that would look great even if it had an actual bloody beating heart inside it.
While your noggin digests that gory picture (for better or worse), we’ll move on. The chassis Dan fabricated for the bike he named Twisted Clifford is stretched 2 inches out and up and sets the tone for a long bike. Neither the bones nor the D&D springer fork are excessively large though. They’re just elongated enough to get the point across without going over the top—it’s a chopper, baby.
In keeping with that theme, it’s no huge shock the focus is on the essentials. Dan fit a Triumph gas tank to the frame and made a matching oil carrier to go with it. The only other bodywork you’ll see on Twisted Clifford is the fender out back, all of it being as red as its namesake, courtesy of Blue Moon Kustoms and Calico Pinstriping. They did a much better job than the gunk you’d find all over Twisted Clifford if Cabana Dan had used a human heart instead of a motor.
