ITS AMERICAN CULTURE !!! Live it ,love it or leave it, SLIM !!!

This is Ruben you can catch him at the Long beach swap just about every month,he aproached me with his idea and this is how it went down...so this is a vl harley frame,to cram a knuckle in it you would usually fuck up the seat post upper casting by making it thin and weak and relocating the tube that locates the upper motormount up on the front casting for clearance,NOT in this case,Ruben wanted little to nill ground clearace, so we stretched the frame at the seatpost,stretched it in the downtube,swept the rear of the frame up,and stretched the front headcasting 3 inches HOLY SHIT!!! All this gave Ruben Clearance for his knuckle, low slung frame,full sized seatpost casting and fully loaded on style! Ruben narrowed his own forks and is running a 23 spool in front and 21 in the rear! Watch for this one,he is a detail freak and I dig his style!!! BLEED,RED,WHITE,AND BLUE,Do all you can for ALL those who have served our country for YOUR FREEDOM, SLIM

This is a project I did for a guy named BIG SCOTT,a cool m/f he is! The frame came to me as a very poorly repaired piece that to the ameture eye would look sufficient,I carefully repaired it where needed (trying not to disturb any of the old weld repairs that helped the look) and finished it with new paint to make it look as if it sat around in a barn for fifty years with little if any weather issues, that was a task if you must imagine! the tank is real(no shit) it is not a repro,yes it hurt when i cut it,Scott asked me to build him a tank with no dash opening up top and thats what he got!(a little his style,a little my style) I first narrowed the tanks 3/4 of an inch per side,to show off his polished UL heads and then shaved the dash and opening at the rear of the tank.(caps were relocated) Please keep in mind the access to the rear tank mount is located at that rear opening, so i fabbed a clean and neat mount under the rear of the tank,also in the pic i am pointing at a round cap that is a cover for a stash spot that is @ 2 inches round by 4 1/2 inches deep,and is accessed by a custom tool I fabbed.These tanks I painted and aged them with my own process,(all laquer).The finish on the tanks is NOT shown in these photos but will be here on the blog soon,as always,Thanks for checking out my blog and dont forget that this day in life only comes once in your life ,enjoy being a free AMERICAN,and dont fucking take it for granted,SLIM
Here are some pics of Ed Foxs vw 3 door transport! we fabricated him a roll cage for his sweet machine,and fixed someone elses attempt at sheetmetal repair.there is also a handle I fabbed to the left of the drivers seat which operates a cooling vent at the rear made for air intake to the turbocharged 2180(of coarse all mechanically operated) The cage is all custom bent by us and is made up of hot rolled 134 wall inch and a half tubing,this took a considerable amount of time to fit properly and clear all the seats and such items that needed to remain removeable without issues for maintinence down the road! Ed , I thank you for your business and it was a pleasure and a honor to work on your bus, SLIM, BTW Ed is the photographer that shot the Slims fab Feature in this issue of the one and only STREET CHOPPER MAG!
