2011 Official Daytona Bike Week Drawing

It’s a tradition. Every year The Daytona Beach Community Foundation holds a drawing for the Official Bike Week Motorcycle. Always a beautiful custom motorcycle, this one built by Brass Balls Bobber & Choppers (model 69) and valued at $35,000. Features include: S&S 93” Flat-Side Shovelhead Engine, Polished BAKER Six-Speed Transmission, Delkron Inner Primary Cover, Barnett Scorpion Lock-Up Clutch, Racing Innovations Softail Style Frame, Ride Wright Wheels, Metzeler Tires, Polished Barnett Outer Primary Cover, Wilwod Brake Calipers.

It takes only $50 to enter the drawing and since the number of printedtickets is 4500 (about only 1000 remaining for sale) your odds to win this bike is much higher than in many other drawings. In addition to the Grand Prize, there are 10 additional runner up prizes valued at $200. you do not need to be present to win. When you buy a ticket you receive an Official Cycle Certificate. The certificate certifies that you have an entry in the drawing. The certificate includes the date, time, place of the drawing along with a list of prizes that will be given away. In addition, your certificate will have a number between 1 and 4500. To participate go to Daytona Chamber Of Commerce Drawing. (photography copyright Bob Feather)

    Nice, but the seat?!?

  2. 2 2Low Feb 10th, 2011 at 3:12 pm

    No problem. If I win I will install a more comfortable seat.

    hmmm…. the seat is too high, the bike has weird lines…. looks like it was thrown together.

    Drop the seat down, kick forward a set of baby apes, mid controls, different tank, shorten the rear fender to 12 o’clock, ditch the front fender, mid pipe 2into1 and now you got yourself a rider >:)

  6. 6 Steve Brands Feb 10th, 2011 at 3:23 pm

    An easy to build, relatively cheap bike to inspire backyard builders. Like Eric, I see the same couple of design mistakes.

  7. 7 Biker Feb 10th, 2011 at 3:25 pm

    For 50 greenbacks, I’d take it…….

  8. 8 Johny Feb 10th, 2011 at 3:25 pm

    Cool, but hate these wheels.

  9. 9 J. Kleves Feb 10th, 2011 at 3:28 pm

    Bolt-on. But good enough for a drawing. I guess the budget was tight.

    A 1, Dar,

    Was wondering if one of the builders could step in and talk about what needs to be
    done for titling the bike. Like the front fender some would remove. Exhaust others
    would remove. I think, correct me if I’m wrong, that some of the choices are made
    to create a legal title for the state? What happens after you get it is a different matter.

    Maybe even Cyril could do a section discussion with builders, for the public about
    how builders would do things different if it weren’t for these legal issues of title out of
    the shop.

    Hate the signal lights, horn, headlight, fenders – wait I can’t get the bike registered without those parts!
    Pipes would likely cause a fail around here. It is just getting harder and harder to be cool like everyone else.

  16. 16 Dar - Brass Balls Bobbers & Choppers Feb 11th, 2011 at 12:08 am

    Thanks for all the input. Thank you Cyril for posting the bike. It was an honor to be selected to build this bike. As correctly noted by those who know, the bike had to meet several requirements that might not have to be met in other situations, which has an impact on the styling of the bike. I dislike signals, horns and fenders too, but gotta use them sometimes.

    A1, thanks for pointing out the seat shock that will compress when riding. Because after all, it is about riding. It is a Rock Shox which is an adjustable air shock for the rear suspension of downhill mountain bikes… you know J. Kleves… bolt on stuff, just like the gauge which has been machined into the top trees.

    I hope you all can make it to Daytona and see this bike in person. Please look very closely. This did not snap together like Legos. Most of the components are the highest quality. Most are supplied by small to mid-sized American manufacturers who should be celebrated for their offerings.

    I would encourage you to view our other builds at http://www.BrassBallsChoppers.com

    You can also go to our facebook page…
    Brass Balls Bobbers – Darwin Motorcycles
    to see teaser pics of the RLX, an American Muscle Bike we are building for Rahal Letterman Racing. It will pay tribute to Bobby Rahal. It is inspired by cafe racers. It is American Muscle for American Muscle. We will be raffling it off to support the troops.

    Thank you for your support of motorcycling. Get out and ride. Support our troops. Love your kids.

    Nice engine. ..Z

  19. 19 Time Cycles Feb 11th, 2011 at 12:46 pm

    Dar – I like you statement “This did not snap together like Legos.” Not much ever does.
    Looks like a solid bike to ride which is all that really counts!

  20. 20 1550tc Feb 11th, 2011 at 2:22 pm


    i love the bike you rode up on when we met at Jeff N’s trailer last summer in Lead…..do you have that bike as a production bike now>

    Ride Wright Wheels are the best ever!!

  23. 23 Rick Fairless Feb 11th, 2011 at 6:22 pm

    Good job Dar, as usual!

  24. 24 canuckrider74 Feb 11th, 2011 at 11:39 pm

    Seems ok to me. I don’t like the seat, bars, tank, gas cap, rear fender and forward controls. But that’s all personal preference. As for the signals, front fender and legal stuff, well I put all that stuff on the triumph chop I’m building right now cause i got tired of not having them and getting hassled by cops everywhere i go. Besides when you add up the retail prices on all the parts on this thing, it doesn’t take long to hit the 35,000 mark. So for 50 bucks it’s a hell of deal. And to those people who think you have to own a shop and sell to big name clients in order to have an opinion on the COMPLETELY SUBJECTIVE looks of a motorcycle….Get a life….and 1550tc, no, not all “bobbers” (incorrect term though it is) look thrown together. Some do, some don’t just like any custom bike.

    We at American Iron Magazine are honored to work with the builders of the official motorcycle of Daytona Beach Bike Week every year. This motorcycle is featured on the cover of our magazine this month.

  26. 26 Hark Feb 14th, 2011 at 11:25 am

    Great Bar Hopper Ride…other than that….I would not do a Iron Butt on it

  27. 27 RUB Feb 15th, 2011 at 1:18 am

    valued at $35,000 , funny , all the bobbers on the brass balls web site are around 20 K . whats so special about this one , besides no paint job ?

    oh wait , 4500 tickets @ 50 bucks each = $ 225000.00 , why isn’t it valued @ 225 K ?

  28. 28 Larry Feb 15th, 2011 at 3:01 am

    don’t care for the softtail frame . do you have to pay tax on 35 K if you win it ?

  29. 29 WILLIE@TROPICALTATTOO Feb 17th, 2011 at 9:49 am

    man love this one good job………

  30. 30 Poppymann Feb 22nd, 2011 at 3:22 pm

    I can’t figure out hwo you get 35k for this. Unless the labor rate is astronomical.
    This must be an accounting dodge.
