Love client photographs like these.....

Sometimes when I do work for clients, I never see the end results of their projects, and that's OK. Other times I get to see where my modifications fitted in on the finished bike. Shawn just sent me a couple of photos of his finished bike, but first.....
This is what Shawn brought me to start with - a Chassis Design Co. "Bling Cycles" drop-seat frame. Shawn had a couple roadblocks to get around to use this frame in his next build. First, he didn't have enough ground clearance, and  second, he needed room for his 135" Evo stroker motor that was being assembled.

So I cut the frame in half, raised the entire backbone 1 1/2", took the deep drop seat section out of the back, and shortened the entire rear section 2" while I was at it. I also put a pocket into back of the transmission plate to tuck in a 16 cell Antigravity battery.
Here's the roller I turned over to Shawn. No, Shawn isn't disappointed, it was just a cold-ass day, with a snow storm blowing  in on the horizion. Plus, Shawn wanted to load up and head out....can you blame him?

Before it left here, I aligned the drivetrain for him, relocated/remounted his CDC oil tank,  made the mounts for his 5 gal. fatbobs, set the rear fender and seat, fabbed the sissy bar, and made one of my "Heavyweight Champ" tail light/license plate frames.
Shawn took his roller home, and this is how the bike finished off. It's a killer fatbob with a great stance, and Shawn did a fantastic job on completing the bike. The fit & finish is top shelf. The paintwork is another class job from Motorsport Concepts here in town. Same shop that did Lumpy's CFL, from below. Motorsport Concepts also has Deb's rear fender right now color-matching it to her tanks, you'll see the rest of her final put-together coming up real soon on here as well.
In this shot you can see the sissy bar, and my "Heavyweight Champ" tail light/license plat mount. The 135"er has plenty of room to slide in and out now, but the dimensions aren't "over the top" to do it.

Shawn has another frame that you might remember me doing for him at the time I modified this one - that's the Shovel 4speed swingarm frame I filtted the Evo motor into, along with the matching Softail 5 speed trans & primary. I 'm looking forward to seeing that completed as well. Thanks for the final photos, Shawn, I appreciate it. Job well done!

Fuel Cleveland Official Pre-Party At Saucy Brew Works

Saucy Brew Works

In the past 10 years the craft brewery movement has taken over the greater Cleveland area by storm. Craft beer brewing hobbyists turning their passions into an opportunity of business and hopes to becoming a staple in the beer industry. Saucy Brew Works is the brain child of Brew Master Eric Anderson and Entrepreneur Brent Zimmerman and first opened it's doors a little over a year and a half ago on July 5th, 2017. Since opening it has been nothing but moving on up for this craft brewery, from partnering with the Cleveland Cavaliers, to opening a second location in Columbus, Ohio and even being distributed in multiple stores, Saucy Brew Works is a true success story. So, when Brent from Saucy Brew Works approached us and asked how they could get more involved with Fuel Cleveland we couldn't have been more excited.


Saucy Brew Works handcrafts all of their brilliant beers in house and have over 16 different flavors to try, there's literally something for everyone. Accompanied by a full bar for your other adult beverage needs, pizza to die for, and a humongous patio, this brewery is perfect to house the official Fuel Cleveland Pre-Party!

Saucy Brew Works is located on the corner of West 29th & Detroit Ave in Cleveland, OH. Their address, 2885 Detroit Ave, Cleveland, OH 44113. We will be throwing a hell of a rager there on Friday July 26th from 8 pm to last call. Make sure to come out early and hang out all night with us! There is a ton of parking options to choose from and we are working on bike parking to be in the front, more details to come on that. We will see you there!
