Al began construction of this bike with a wrecked '69 CH he picked up for $500 back in '78. He started with a Cycle Fab frame and fabricated his own "digger"fender and cut down Sporty tank. Al did all the paint and molding at his shop, AJR Accessories. The engine on this scoot is almost all stock internally, with the exception of Magnuson blower and Dellorto carb. When the engine was stripped for rebuilding, the cases were polished and virtually all the pieces were sent to Perewitz for engraving or 24ct gold plating. Cycle Fab also handled the barrel and head hexing. This bike is the only Sporty I've seen using a MC80 supercharger. Check out the pulleys, it's actually being under driven.

I was flipping through an old SuperCycle the other day, and ran across a pic of our buddy Dave. This pic was taken on the side of Ippy's garage where we did alot of building and partying. This was the early '90's and we would send in tons of stupid pics to all the mags just to see if they would publish them. Good times for sure!

George Waters built this bike around a '61CH mill. The tank was designed by George and fabbed a roofing company! The rest of the bike was built around the standards of the day, Ness and B.A.C.C. George painted the bike himself, which put his company, Cycle Art, on the map in Augusta, Georgia.

I'm taking a break from the usual showrod theme today. I love lowriders and the amount of detail that goes into building a showstopping ride. Check out some of these paint jobs. Vatos Locos 4 eva, ese!

This was Bill Guffey's first go at building a custom. The body's framework was built from 1/2 inch square stock and used 18 gauge sheet for the skin. The springer was stretched 20 over. The entire trike was built and painted by Bill and I think it came out sweet!
