I saw this thing when I went out for some lunch the other day. The funny thing is what you can't see in the picture. It's parked in front of the employment center. Doesn't have a job but has some pimp'n rims.


Points covers and Derby covers raw streight from the machine shop. Sent the other half out for chrome.

The seal would not come out because of the Yamabond. Cuz you know they will leak if you don't glue them in with a permanent sealer. But the sealer is a waist if you don't put them in correct. It's funny both sides weren't even done the same. But they both had pleanty of sealer. Man they'll let anyone work on these things. This reminds me of something my friend Pat would say in this situation. " So you want to be a Harley mechanic ?"

Incorrect. Upside down. "I just had this fixed and it still leaks. Something must be wrong with the fork tubes." Ugh... no some dumb ass put the seal in upside down.

New Product Release

Get them while there hot!!!

TEXAS BIKE WORKS, LLC INTRODUCES RetroFrames TM line of vintage Old-School and unique Fusion chopper frames to chopper builders.

The specific Old-School frame shown integrates vintage 1970s small-diameter tubular members with modern-era Sportster motors (1986-2003). The Century Rocket frame is constructed of rugged, 0.120”- wall, AISI 1020 DOM tubing, having 1” frame rails with a 1-1/2” backbone and seat post. Also features a 6” forward x 2” up-stretch x 38-degree rake. This configuration takes a +4 over fork assembly. The frames are set up for acceptance of chain-driven 130mm tires. They are all TIG welded in our patent pending rotisserie style fixtures. This allows the frame to be completely welded in the jig then stress relieved and fixture cooled which minimizes distortion and maintains accuracy.

RetroFramesTM are computer-engineered in SolidWorks CAD software, followed by a corresponding stress/strain-field finite-element-analysis (FEA) performed in COSMOSWorks. FEA graphically depicts the field distributions throughout the frame design – enhancing TBW’s quality assurance goal geared toward top road performance and safety.
