Twin Cam B Bobber
Twin cam B bobber (Twinkie): I started to do custom airbrush art in 2006. Took a 2004 twincam B motor on trade for some custom paint. 95 inches with all the good stuff, screaming eagle heads, cam,etc. Did more airbrush work and found a frame maker (Maximum metalworks)in Ontario Canada who made a frame for a friend which was beautiful. Called them up to see if they had ever made a TCB frame. First time for them. Did more airbrushing, bought more parts. Trans is a Jims Fat Five.
Ultima 2 inch open primary. Foot clutch, hand shift. This was a total low budget build with me making what ever I could. Was going to make some pipes but found a set of 2 into 1 supertramps in my piles of crap on my shelf. Made a new turn out and got it chromed. Powder coated the frame chrome plastic. The tank is a Cole Foster unit I got from a friend (I owe him a couple of favor's now).
I Molded and painted the sheet metal myself. Total of 24 coats of paint with enough metal flake to paint three complete cars. Heartlands ignition, real nice system. Joker machine head lamps. Took it for the first spin yesterday around my street. Felt great but the foot clutch will take a bit of time to get used to. Let me know what you think.
