Pornhead48 is my personal rolla. More than 350h inside this complete buildup. Started in Oct. 2010, finished in March 2011. Through summer 2011 it brought me over 11.000 km to all my favored runs ’n’ parties.
Basis is a mid-1948 wishbone frame powered by a 93cui S&S P-series engine. The 1999 HD-tranny is remanufactured and pimped by a kick start. Inside the HD primary works an 11mm Primo belt drive with a heavy duty Primo clutch. Carb is S&S Super E with S&S cleaner. Offset springer front end. Both 16” stainless wheels have 10” brake discs biten by Swedish ISR 2-piston calipers. Original cut off back fender with 3,5 gal fat bob fuel tank with ST dash panel by an electronic speedo.
2-1 pipes and muffler handmade due to the wide kick start cover.
Most parts are powder coated – no paint job. Tank and fender are foiled by 50th porn style comicz. And many many more…damn, this bitch is fucken fast.
Our religion – Kickass bikes
