The Daily: Sacred Steel IH

 

Ironheads are notorious for being mistreated by their owners. This one, built by Jason Wilson of Sacred Steel is hardly different. A higher level of craftsmanship may have been poured into this machine, but faithful as it is, it still gets clown-punched on a regular.

 

 

 

Bike name: Purple Headed Yogurt Slinger
Builder name: Jason Wilson 
Shop name: Sacred Steel
Backstory & some specs: It's a 1976 Sporty, got it off a cowboy in Pasadena on the cheap, with a 10 over front end and a purple tank. I rode it around a bit, but got sick of people making fun of me and throwing tortillas as I went by. Plus that stupid stock oil tank and frigid' car battery bothered my leg. It did a wheelie once though,not on purpose though.
I picked up a weld-on hardtail kit from a buddy, so I took that and the stock loop to Spitfire. The boss man is pretty cool there and let me use one of his frame tables and his key dudes helped me out. He didn't have a sporty jig at the time so we made it up as we went. I ended up cutting the shit out of frame and hardtail kit till all we had was the motor cradle and axle plates, Mad Mike and son bent up and pieced-together all the parts. We used Paul's neck he made with internal stops. It was a pretty weird looking frame bare naked,but I had a pretty good idea what I wanted to do. We went 2" out, 2" under and brought up a radius backbone 6" to make room for the tank. It also has a Lil wishbone goose neck thing that all my bikes have, kind of a signature I guess.
The fork is a cut-down jap girder, scored from tim@negotiable parts in Riverside, CA.18" Sun racing brushed aluminum rim up front. The wheel is from Buchannon's that cost more then the stupid bike. Stock front disc brake and firestone rubber.
Rear wheel description (rim size, tire size/brand, hub style):18 alum wheel from a fist pumpin italian.de-greased and scotch brite,stock drum brake with firestone tire.
The polished stainless seat pan was hand formed by legendary comic Carrot Top at Sacred Steel world headquaters,and covered in human skin by the world famous Riff Raff leather works. Hand formed aluminum tanks, stainless fuel lines and copper oil lines though a Mazda oil filter. Brass floor drain air cleaner. Stainless handlebars. Cut up PM hand controls. Handmade brass pegs, shifter toe peg from Shinya. Headlamp from a golf cart. Wayne painted it in a day with One-Shot and Rustoleum black.
Special thanks to: Paul from Spitfire, Rabbit, Tiny, Wayne Wreck, Sweet Baby James , DLMC, Chicago Bob, Shinya and Ayumi.
This bike was built for 2006 Easyrider's show in six weeks, rolled in with the rustoleum paint still wet. I went to a couple shows after that then started to ride it like a douche. I drink a bit, and have very bad judgement, and ride this bike to break it. I've only had minor problems with this thing and never changed the oil, so I guess it's a pretty good machine, even laid it down, stumbled around, picked it up and it started right up and got me home. It's a fun lil' scoot even though a look like a fat guy in a little jacket when I ride it.

wow thats a lot of do-dads and woozles and chochkeys. It looks like a labor of Love and I dig that I also like how it's not to perfect a scratch here and some rust there like it could have ben some barn find of some art deco era time machine experiment. still some thing about the proportion bugs me I think it's the gastank too long.How would it look if the rear of the gas tanks ended about where the rear top mount for them is located??????? just kiding it's sweet bra

Nice job on the cleaned up electrics. How'd you get the stock disk working with that front end? Nice! And that air cleaner...

Commented on 8-30-2010 At 02:13 am
 

Yeah, what KY13 said . . . 'art deco era time machine experiment' sums up what I was thinking nicely. Love the vintage look, the brass bits - death to bling!
