Lock Baker is well known for his wildly original eye-catching motorcycles. This machine may be the least over the top in comparison to Lock's other creations, but it's still miles from boring. Lock has owned the bike for quite a while and it's been through several incarnations until it evolved into what you see here. Peruse the details and note the vast amount of cast items: tailight, foot controls, front hub, etc. These bits, each one a small work of art, really put E-Fab's motorcycles ahead of the pack.

in Lock's own words: This bike has been through many incarnations. It was originally a 1978 Superglide. Next it became the "Rusty Buzzard" (old E-Fab bike), then a rat bike in Japanese style and now this. This is my personal bike. I know everything about it and have perfected it to the point where I'm not sure if it can be improved upon without completely starting over again. It runs great, has the right amount of power for its application, and is comfortable for me. It is 100% predictable after owning it for so long. The paint was done by Robert Pradke, who did an outstanding job.
