CUSTOM BIKE FOR RAFFLE AT NATIONALS 2018

ORIGINAL IDEA

"The CVMA bike build idea was conceived during a discussion amongst friends, brothers and sisters of CVMA 23-2. I agreed to the request from Jester to build this bike. As the planning began, Alex "Tattz" and I came up with the idea to have a book that would document the entire build. This book would become an integral part of the entire build as it will accompany the bike when the winner is named in 2018. I found a donor bike local in El Paso, purchased it and began the work. The key part of this build is that the shop was always open to Veterans to come by and contribute by turning wrenches. If a veteran assisted their name was logged in the book by date and what they had done. Multiple pictures were also taken during these times. What we ended up with is a registered and titled 1976 Harley Davidson Ironhead bobber with subtle hints of it being a CVMA bike through the colors, hidden spades and hand tooled, skull covered leather seat. The motor is an electric start 1000cc on a rigid frame with right side shift. The frame, tins and wheels are powder coated for durability. There are to many details to list for the remaining custom parts, custom fabrication and looks. All of this has been captured in the leather bound book."                                                  -Aaron "Ratchet" Whitham
