Well hell ! I look back to when i started out on LIL and realized i built a gang of rides in the few months sence i been here ! Well I am not burned out I am just going to put the kits i want to build down for a while and let you all catch up ! :biggrin:

But I will still be building ! LOL! I just wont been in shop work on cars for awhile !

I Got a gift from BIG C and its a new style of building for me and he and i are doing a some what buddy build ! We are working on the same type kit and sharing building time and hanging out ! A rally fun and kick back style of build ! So heres what the build is !


THIS ONE IS MINE !








It has tons of custom work done to it that you really cant tell unless you have the kit to look and see but heres a pic of it in front of the box that it is to be !





I made custom rear fender, custom tank , molded in battery box , seat pan the fuel tank is molded to th eset and frame , i racked front forks , custom made the handle bars ! Like i said i have done alot already but most are little that wont be seen unless you build the bike your self !

As for BIG Cs bike It is also done up with lots of tricks and custom stuff , but hell have to show you his ! I didnt get pics of it yet !

Well enjoy and i will keep you posted on this build ! And again I am just taking a break and tring a new feild in modeling !

If you find one and dont want to build it out of box you will need to do alot of fab ! They have 4 kits out but the only thing that are inner change able are the wheels and handle bars ,and air tank and belt cover ! Everything else is made for the frame of the bike ! And the Frames are not the same ! I have a lot of work in this to make it look cool , This one is ugly if built box stock !

Wait tell you see BIG Cs ! Hes is kick ass ! mine is more of a cruzer , Cs is a devil chaser LOL! :biggrin:

I dont know about that ! Fred they wont look like this out of the box ! I have cut the frame added to the rear fender m cut the tank down and moved it bake and the molded it to the frame ! Be ready to do some work ! I even had to change the handle bars ! They are neat kits but lack some needed detail !

looks sweet Mini but you need to make the tank a bit longer and wider but thats just me. there fun to mod i'v built both the aces wild and the Crusader and by far like the Crusader the best, got one in the works with a twisted down tube right now.

heres my first Crusader its stock out of box with drag bars and no front fender


pick up a easyrider mag for building tips and if you need any help just ask i got some cool stuff in the works for them.

DoUgH that bike look good ! He sence you built these already can you tell how much i changed it up ! Like i said this is a new area of building for me ! I like the challenge it opened up my mine LOL!

As for the tank ! Its the one you got on your bike i cut it in half and moldeed it to the frame ! Its the same length and wideth as yours ! I just cut off the pegs the frame and moved it back to mold it to the pan and the racked the forks !

Do you think it looks to thin ?

After seeing yours and BigC's I gotta get me one of these choppers after work. Tight work!!!! :thumbsup:  :thumbsup:  :cool:
They are to have 4 bikes out but the only ones to be seen so far are the ACES WILD ( the blue bike ) and the 1 i got the Crusader (red bike ) Good luck if you find 1 ! It will take some work !
