  • 1999 Roadstar Build

    This is a ‘99 roadstar we are rebuilding in our shop.
    we built a one off rectangular tube swing arm to house the 18-10.5” wheel. the previous swing arm housed the 300mm wheel in the bike was poorly done, uneven and unsafe with a 3/4” axle.
    The fuel tank (late model sportster tank) is widened on a taper so it stayed skinnier in the rear but wider in the front.
    The Springer front end is our Redneck Springers we build in house.
    we had to modify several things to adapt to this frame though it already had the 1” neck bearing conversion done.
    we are talking about doing the R&D to build our rednecks springers to mount directly to a Roadstar chassis without any bearing conversions. If there is enough interest we may do this.
    The exhaust we had our good friend Ricky Graffeo build out of stainless. We then used this old collector we had to finish it off. We made some flanges to bolt the two together. one being stainless for the stainless side and the other mild steel for the collector side.
    the collector side will be ceramic coated.
    The front wheel is a 23x5.5” that houses the huge 18” rotor.

    Hope you like the direction.
    thanks for looking

        I like it! The welds on the pipes kind of remind me of a Millipede.
        Are there torque cones in the headers to keep some level of backpressure?
