Scorching Bike: What’s the story behind this bike?
F Bomb Baggers: I’m an enormous fan of the previous nostalgic appears to be like from the ’50s and ’60s and figured I’d attempt my finest to get a more moderen bike to look previous. I suppose it’s a matter of attempting to make it look each like an old-school chopper and a bagger. It begins with the old-school look in direction of the entrance, and also you get a style of latest college when it will get to the again with the Black Label bag setup.
HB: What’s your favourite half?
FBB: I received to say the good components of this bike are the exhaust, killer art work by Well-known Dave, and that large honkey spoke wheel. I at all times consider much less is extra in the case of the big-wheel baggers. We’re already getting shit and haters left and proper, so I at all times attempt to make them clear and easy. I believe the most important praise is when an older rider comes as much as me and says I’m not a fan of this big-wheel shit however I dig this bike. One other contact was simply including a easy pink stripe on the entrance wheel that basically peeks it out. When it was lastly buttoned up I hit up Brian at Sinister and informed him to do it old style, and it couldn’t have come out higher—simply the clear, easy, ’50s look. A seat ought to by no means stick out on a motorcycle; it ought to simply completely mix in with the entire bike, and this one did it.
HB: What’s essentially the most difficult a part of the construct?
FBB: Actually, with it being a non-fairing bike, it retains it on the straightforward aspect. If something, simply hoping the scheme was going to work was the most important query. As soon as folks began stopping by the store and dropping the “F bomb” when seeing it we knew it was good to go.
