Steve's Heavy Ironhead

 

A dude can't be a member of the Douche Larouche MC "soft core" porn stars from Los Angeles, CA, a partner at Heavy Clothing and ride a regular old motorcycle, can he? That's what Steve Wright asked himself, so he got together with friends and family and they built this long and narrow ironhead Sportster. It's got an oil tank with a horn, just like the mythical creature the DLMC love so much. All kidding aside, this bike showcases some serious talent and has more than a few magical features.

 

 

Owner: Steve Wright

Location: Rancho Cucamonga, CA

Builder: Steve Wright, Spitfire Motorcycles

Bike name: The Cocaine Cowgirl

Engine, year and make, model, modifications: 1970 ironhead Sportster, kick only with Morris magneto

Frame: Spitfire Motorcycles

Fork: Rebuilt AEE narrow square springer, 12" over stock

Chassis mods: 4" up, 4" out, 48 degrees in neck

Tire/wheel size and style: Rear 16" eBay find. Front 21" laced up with a spool hub off eBay

Favorite thing about this bike: the molding, the gas tank, the oilbag and the front end

Next mod: Register and sell 

Mods, cool parts, etc.: I dig the brake cross over made by Mikey Santoro and the sprotor brake made by paul at Spitfire motorcycles. Of course the paint and molding by Casey at Headcase Kustom Art

Back story: I almost broke my knee trying to start it, and I almost crashed when I rode it the first time. The brake didn't work as well as I thought.

Thanks:

Paul Cavalo and the gang at Spitfire Motorcycles

Casey at Headcase Kustom Art for hooking up the paint

Chris at LA Speed Shop

Berto at Mobile Custom Wiring for helping with parts and trades

My dad for all the late night help

I just don't understand how handlebars in that kind of position can offer a riding position that allows the rider to actually 'control' the motorcycle.

Commented on 2-7-2011 At 04:03 pm
 

Control is a state of mind. I don't understand why someone would go to all that work to build such an insane chopper and slap on a $20 Chinese taillight. Aside form that I'd give my left nut to own this bike.

To #1, my chopper has pullbacks that are almost as extreme as these.

The first few corners I took, i nearly tipped it over. Once you get used to it, it has to be the most comfortble way of riding. Sitting up right it takes all the pressure of your back and is like sitting on the couch.

Steering response is fine ( for a 10" over front end on mine).

The only thing that is a challenge is pushing the bike around, coz you got no leverage, also makes tight turns a bit hairy coz the throttle either swings to your stomach or way out the other side.

I'll be having pullbacks like this on every bike I build :)

thank you all for the kind words about my bike

and as for the haters i love it keep hatin it makes the world go round!!!

Commented on 2-8-2011 At 03:05 pm
 

It's amazing how a simple comment about handlebars and riding position can be taken as 'hate'. GSAND was the only one who actually took the high road and explained the point intelligently. Sounds like some people are getting their feelings hurt a tad too easily.

Ironheads rule! Love it.

Commented on 2-8-2011 At 08:53 pm
 

Im pretty sure that taillight isnt a chinese knock off... with all the badass shit that comes out of Spitifre....Im pretty sure its a OG British Lucas piece of junk...... jus sayin..

Myself, I wouldnt talk about something i myself couldnt ride...that crazy sexy bastard has balls

Commented on 2-8-2011 At 10:55 pm
 

That tail light was made by Satan himself...

love this bike! have it saved in my "insperation for touring chopper" folder

Commented on 2-10-2011 At 01:21 pm
 

Everyone is riding what he feels comfortable.There are lot of " customizers" who spent a bag of $ for custom spares and then fixing them on bike with rosted screws. That's a real shit , not wide or narrow hadlebars.
Nice bike and GOOD QUALITY WORK ,man !

Commented on 2-10-2011 At 01:35 pm
 

think I just took an acid trip back to the 70's, and I was only alive for one of those ten years.

but I did see some sweet choppers like it covered in dust, in a barn, and that ones even sweeter.

nice work.....................

Commented on 2-11-2011 At 01:01 am

Commented on 2-11-2011 At 07:40 pm

Commented on 2-15-2011 At 06:32 pm
 

I dig it. I like to see someone put so much time and effort into an ironhead. Good work!

This has got to be the very best Sportster I have EVER seen.
Very nice job all the way around. It flows well and the paint adds
to the look perfectly.
Ride On ! !
