"I used a scratch-built frame because I wanted it to be big and heavy looking, like a bulldozer. The spine frame was bent from straight steel for $160. I spent $130 on steel for the girder fork and swingarm. The front girder links are Honda CB200 swingarms, and the front shock is from a Yamaha SRX. Most of the mechanical stuff, including the motor, subframe and brakes, came from an abandoned 1987 FZR600. The wheels are both Suzuki Bandit rears. The fuel petcock knob is from a children’s billiards table and the headlight is from an old pickup. The seat is from a '40s exercise machine. Almost everything on this bike was bartered for, scavenged or built. Cash won’t buy cool, though I did spring an extra $30 for a vanity plate.
