Fat Ass Hubless Chopper

He is a plumber in Arlington, Texas. It’s the first time he builds a motorcycle. He used mainly second hand or junkard parts and spent a total of $9500 on this “monstruous” hubless chopper. He states that it handles like a trike. Hmmmm…

    Gotta give him a High Five fer ingenuity. I wonder how it handles the corners? It’s probably got a pressure drive, but I can’t figure out how he has it connected. Interesting to say the least! Wiz

    From that vid it almost looks like he is using two tyres!!!!So he could be driving it from the middle in between the two tyres….

    If you go to his youtube page, you can see how it’s driven. 🙂

    I’ll give him credit…he has some pretty big balls. 🙂 Since it doesn’t lean, he’s assuming it will stay upright like a trike. Trike’s are what…. 5′ wide minimum? This thing is only 3′ max. I’m sure it will stay up to round 10-15mph. But one he gets that bike up to speed and takes a corner…. He’s gonna high-side. And there’s no way he could pull a quick corner. Definitely a bad ass show bike, but I doubt he’ll be able to get it registered. 🙂

    way cool for a plumer ,and the first bike he has ever built . but dose look like it dose not corner well. but the guy has done what most can’t . and getting it registered , just depends on the stste and the guy looking at it. dont piss him off..

    just checked out his youtube vidio and the guy put some thing in to it., and it dose drive from the center of the two tires , trailer fenders and pipe to create the rear fender section all metal and lifts up for access ,car rear brake caliper . thats using the head for more than a hat rack .

    Can’t see the pic?

    here’s the video that shows how it’s built. The whole thing swivels in the middle for turning. Wild. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KO04WYeBPy4

    Handles like a trike, because it is a trike.

    Looklike it handles like a Old, Generation Trike. So you Design it, Build it, and Ride it a very little. What do you do with it now? I would like to Ride it, twice……….first and last.

    An interesting design…..

    But looking at “the ride video,” it looks to me like there was an inordinate amount of “Flintstone-footwork” needed to get going (upright) and it ended up on the grass insted of makign that first corner….. ????

    While it isn’t my style, I will certainly give a thumbs up for this guy… he did something his way and has an interesting machine.
    Keep it up dude.

    Good to see folks tinkering and making things. But why does it need a kick stand?!

  16. 16 Texasgrumpy Jan 14th, 2011 at 7:56 am

    I have seen this bike in person at the Feed The Kids rally last year and it is a beauty.Could not believe then that he only had $9500 in the thing.I don’t believe that it is very ride-able but it damn sure looks good and must be seen in person.

  17. 17 Brian from NJ Jan 14th, 2011 at 8:05 am

    Looks like it’s good for one thing. Take it to the drag strip and let it rip! I’m sure he can find some crazy SOB that’s willing to run it.

    interesting ! yes i do need a video of me riding and turning the bike ! yes the bike will twist in a turn ! with the back wheel flat on the ground. but i should of used hydraulic drive on the back wheel ! because the drive belt effects the steering ! i takes getting used to ?

    RE:
    “…back wheel flat on the ground…”

    Hmmmmm….
    How about two independently suspended (hydro-driven) back wheels…???
    And eliminate that flex-link.
    That should get ya into a corner without the “flat” effect…. i think(?)

    This beast is quite the work of art, and we know something about motorcycle works of art. Keep up the good work and if you ever decide to relocate to sunny florida, look us up… we would love to have you on board.
