A Mini-Series On Custom Motorcycles Built To Honor Historic War Planes

A new website called Warbikes is launching a video mini-series offering viewers an up-close experience as a build team – fellow Builder Ralph Randolph & Crew at Knockout Motorcycles in Mesa, AZ – explores the unique history ad craftsmanship behind American military aircraft and then produce a custom motorcycle worthy of this heritage.

On Warbikes, you can follow the weekly progress, from inception to completion, and engage the team members with questions and recommendations. New Gunfighter episodes will be posted to the site every week. The 1st custom bike built by Ralph Randolph is based on the Air Force’s legendary WWII-era P-51D Mustang fighter plane. For those who don’t know Ralph is a 12-year veteran pilot with a major commercial airline. Fans are also encouraged to join the WarBikes Facebook Fan page for show updates, discussions, contests and additional information. Below the Warbikes show trailer.

    Well, here’s my contribution to the “War Bird” builds.
    I did mine in an unheated back yard garage while stuck in a wheel chair after a bad accident.
    It’s called the Mutha-Fokker and is in the style of the Red Baron’s Fokker DR-1

    you can see more of it in Cycle Source mag.

    BTW, it’s for sale if anyone’s seriously interested.

    Always nice to see a “planned” build instead of a “lets see what happens” build.

    Sort-a like the difference between “call-shot” & “slop-shot” pool.
    (smack-em hard & hoping one goes in……. whats the point?)

    It’s funny, I never thought about motorcycles this way, I’m thinking about getting one of the new Ducati electric bikes, what do you think?
