Hippy Killer's Evo Short Chop

 

With so much attention being given to the resurrection and reconstruction of long bikes from chopperdom's Golden Age, it's nice to see a guy as talented as Kutty Noteboom go his own way on a modern build. Kutty's been itching to do a fast, compact chopper out of his Hippy Killer Garage for some time, and finally pulled it off in time for last year's Mooneyes Show. This bike is neat from every angle, and its stance can't be beat.

 

 

Owner: Kutty 
Bike name: California Kush
Engine, year and make, model, modifications:  97 HD Evo branch heads, andrews cam and blah blah, I dont really care as long as it moves.
Frame: Fl shovel frame, goosed and deraked by Freddy Hernandez and other mods to it by myself
Fork: Early pan tubes and lowers shaved by me fit into 39mm trees. 
Chassis mods: Sure!
  
Tire/wheel size and style:  21 front 18 rear morris mag wanna bees I had made
Favorite thing about this bike:   Wheels, Tank Molding and stance make it, other wise I am not too impressed by it, but I had fun building it and it is a hoot to ride. 
Next modification will be:  Stop the oil leak.  For some reason after the freshly built evo sat on a shelf for a year it wants to dump oil everywhere. Dont drink tap water! 
  
Other mods, accessories, cool parts, etc:   THe engraving on the Cast headlight shroud and moon aircleaner was done by Mark Cooper out of Riverside,Ca., He is a neat gunsmith and engraver.  The sporty Rocker boxes were engraved by David O Hanlon out of Australia. He does some neat stuff as well.  The Headlight shroud deal was a ----- before it was cut up and sand cast.  Can you Guess it?  If you ask me I will tell you.  If you look at it for more than a few minutes you will figure it out.  Paint was done by Dave Whittle who does most of my bikes, He is also a neat guy whos been doing paint and pinstripe shit for years.   Used all my pegs and stuff and made the controls out of stuff in the shop.  Sissy bar is holding one of my FTW taillights. And the sprotor set up sort of stops it.
Thanks to: Chop Cult and Biltwell, Mooneyes for having it in Japan, Justin Brown for helping me around the shop. Josh Null for the maple leaves I used for stencils,  And ROn Mangus for wrapping my seat pan, Freddy Hernandez who just rules it, keith dean for helping me with the molding , Donnie For rebuilding the motor, and of course my wife jamie and son kyler for still being here when I come in from the shop at night. 

 

Bike name: California Kush (I changed it for the title, but Kutty spells it with a "C". -Bill)

Engine year, make, model and modifications: '97 H-D Evo with Branch heads, Andrews cam and a bunch of other stuff. I don't really care as long as it moves 

Frame: FL shovel frame, goosed and deraked by Freddy Hernandez and other mods to it by myself. 

Fork: Early pan tubes and lowers shaved by me fit into 39mm trees.  

Chassis mods: Sure!

Tire/wheel size and style: 21" front 18" rear on Morris mag wanabees

Favorite thing about this bike: Wheels, Tank Molding and stance make it, other wise I am not too impressed by it, but I had fun building it and it is a hoot to ride.  

Next modification will be: Stop the oil leak. For some reason after the freshly built Evo sat on a shelf for a year, now all it wants to do is leak oil

Other mods, accessories, cool parts, etc: The engraving on the cast headlight shroud and Moon air cleaner was done by Mark Cooper out of Riverside, CA. He is a neat gunsmith and engraver. The Sporty rocker boxes were engraved by David O'Hanlon out of Australia. The headlight shroud deal was something else before it was cut up and sand cast. Can you guess what I used to make the mold? Look at it for more than a few minutes you can figure it out. Paint was done by Dave Whittle who does most of my bikes. Dave is also a neat guy who's been doing paint and pinstriping for years. HKG pegs and brake pedal on foot controls I made from junk laying around in the shop. Sissy bar is holding one of my FTW taillights. A sprotor setup sort of stops the whole bike

Thanks: Mooneyes for bringing my bike to Japan. Justin Brown for helping me around the shop. Josh Null for the maple leaves I used for paint stencils, and Ron Mangus for wrapping my seat pan. Thanks to Freddy Hernandez for just ruling it, and to Keith Dean for helping me with the molding. Donnie for rebuilding the motor, and of course my wife Jamie and son Kyler for still being here when I come in from the shop at night

I love the little lip on the seat. Really makes it look finished. Really nice details on this.

"....Other wise I'm not too impressed by it...."
You kidding me? Evo's have a tendency to look "heavy." The builder managed to keep this bike clean, neat and light-looking.
Very nice.

I agree with Bill...great departure from the raked and flaked long bikes that seem to be in style these days! Awesome details...love the primary setup.

Sweet ride for sure! I love the engraving!!

Commented on 1-16-2012 At 05:08 pm
 

that primary is titties. And the engraving is bad ass too. This is a sharp looking bike.

Thanks guys, Just was surfing on the net and saw this. Awesome. By me not being impressed by it, I just meant overall the bike isnt as flashy as most, its more of an all business bike.
Thanks

Sick build! love the flow of the tank and all the little details.

"not too impressed" remember when Cole did a few bikes with the RevTech Evo's..and every chopper snob on the innerwebs couldn't see the forest through the trees? same deal here. These things don't need generator cases to be legit..This bike undoubtedly goes as well as it looks. I give it 1 1/2 thumbs. (half thumb due to an oil leak, those suck.) nice work Kutty.

I like everything about this bike - absolutely fantastic!

Commented on 1-16-2012 At 08:04 pm
 

Some nice elements I really like the desert rose triumph and a sinners prayer bike. This bike looks a little more polished I think it grows on you. The more subtle things like the clean frame rails and the bead blasted wheels are very cool.

look alot like my skinny jean bike,they could be cousins ;-)

Looks awesome, the cast nacelle is the fucking business!!!

As much as I would have liked to do an article about this here machine, I'm afraid the credit can not go to me, or any of the other Fiends. Must've been a computer glitch, as I'm sure this article was written by Billdozer. Just clearing the air.

Love the media blasted / scotch-brited mags

Commented on 1-16-2012 At 10:32 pm
 

Got to see this one up close not to long ago, the pictures dont do the engraving enough justice

Commented on 1-16-2012 At 10:55 pm
 

Saw this at the Biltwell Rubbish sale. It's the type of bike that makes me realize I have no attention to detail. Love the style of this thing.

evos rule!

Commented on 1-17-2012 At 01:53 am
 

Now that looks like fun bike to beat on

Commented on 1-17-2012 At 06:40 pm

Commented on 1-18-2012 At 01:55 am

Commented on 1-18-2012 At 12:20 pm
 

man i been seeing this bike everywhere and i don't mind. i love those mags, they look like oldschool skyway tuff wheels. bike is hella sweet!

Commented on 1-18-2012 At 01:20 pm
 

Those wheels....Would be nice to see a howto on those. Are they by any chance stock HD rims turned down in some bigass lathe you have standing somwhere?

Commented on 1-18-2012 At 02:50 pm
 

so clean…

Commented on 1-19-2012 At 12:59 pm
 

Yea, Where did you get those rims? Ive only ever seen one 21" cast mag before. Is it billet and blasted? Looks like bolt on hubs.

Commented on 6-18-2012 At 12:54 am
