Urban Custom Cycles @ 2015 J&P Cycles Ultimate Builder in Portland

Tags : 

At the 2015 J&P Cycles Ultimate Builder in Portland, OR – http://www.jpcycles.com The build started with a customer that had a Sportster and couldn’t conquer two wheels so she brought it in to TeamURBAN for a trike conversion. Her roots are in hot rodding, she is a cancer survivor and her favorite color is chrome. So the color palette was simple, flat black, metal flake pink and chrome.

The trike features a Paughco wide shock springer frontend with twisted front legs, tapered rear oval legs and a floating front fender. The wheels are metal flake and chrome with twisted spokes. Website – http://www.urbancustombikes.com/

The Sportster 48 Mock Up

Tags : 

Well, a lot has happened and is happening at Sin-Central since the last update. We got the sled back from LED SLED and then the real work began.

If attitude is not the single most important factor in this build’s success, then it’s pretty damn close. The 48 had an interesting look and this bar hopper had to drip with gravitas and deliver street cred for the pilot.
