This bike started out as an FL for Jerry’s wife Melanie but he wasn’t feeling it, and she didn’t like it. The whole bike, except for the frame, fender, seat, handlebars, and rotors, has been made from scrap parts. The engine was ruined by guys that didn’t know how to maintenance a bike. The transmission was scrap and rebuilt to better than new. The PM brakes and controls were completely disassembled, modified, anodized black, then rebuilt. The tank had been in storage for years. Jerry cut it down and re-designed it to make the “little tea pot” gas tank. With a 2 gallon tank she’s not going too far. Mel brought the sheet metal to Travis the painter and told him she wanted a 60’s low rider style with red and lots of flake. He did it and put a lot of hours into the job and it shows. The paint job catches the eye and draws you over to check out the rest of the bike. Like the paint, the attention to detail and craftsmanship that went into this bike will not disappoint. She was even pretty cool when she saw the Bitch seat, designed by Chris Butt and tooled by Mauricio. The bike handles like a dream, and with the 96 cubic inch engine built and tuned by Jerry, man, you really have to hold on.
