These unique functional art pieces truly representourpassion for vintage cycles...

Over the past few years quite a few builders have started building bikes of this kind. A few of them are building Really Nice examples.We have chosen to approach building these Tribute Replicas, ith "REPLICA" being the main focus. We do our best to build our bikes in a manner that one can distinctly pinpoint the Make, nd Model we are replicating even without paint and logos. On this type of platform there are obviousrestraints to how accurate we can come to an original bike, ut we do everything possible to build our customers an example of their favorite vintage ride.Building our bikes in this manner truly gives each customer a ONE OFF CUSTOM !

Here for your consideration is one of our latest Tribute Replica. This bike was designed and built to be reminiscent of an early 1900's Indian board track racer.

Done in Indian's traditional Red color with a "barn find" finish, ompleting the motif, ook and feel of a vintage survivor. Completing abelievable Rustic Finish is all about the details. Look close and your sure to see our attention to those details. From the frame design to the hand crafted fuel tank and Gold leaf logos. All the way down the line to the smallest nuts and bolts, very inch of this build is finished to look a tho it has lived and survived the test of time.

This bike is 100% finished and ready for a new home. We road test all of our builds to ensure that they arrive tuned in, roblem free and ready for the road ahead. Each bike is put to the test and has roughly 30+ miles on the road before going up for sale.

(This is why we list them as "USED")

Bike is available for viewing at our shop for any local buyer to come take a look in person. If local and interested we would love for you to stop by. The Barn Find finish is something to behold in person. Though we do our very best to take as high quality photos as possible, hotos just don't do it justice!

We are NOT Professional Photographers,by any means.

We simple do our best and upload the photos.What you see in the photos is the Actual bike you will receive. Capturing this type of finish in photos is truly a pain! With almost every bike, re customers always say "Your right, ictures just don't do it justice. Seeing these bikes in this finish is SO MUCH better in person".

For each different modelone could count the total number of originals that have survived to date and not run short of Fingers and Toes. One of the last public Sales of one of these extremely rare original Bikes, a 1912 HD), old at action this past March 2015 for atremendous... $236,500 !!!!!!!<---- That is NOT a Typo !I don't know about you, ut we sure can't afford those prices ! And even if we could we surly would Never ride a bike that rare and expensive.So, o quench our thirst and love for these timeless bikes we build Tribute Replicas. This we feel is the Closest and Next Best thing to being able to enjoy the wind in your hair on the back of your favorite vintage bike.Kick your leg over and roll back the throttle on one of these bikes and your taken back to those, ruly Simpler times.

These bikes are crafted with NEW parts,(some factory and hand made), hat are only finished to look old and worn.

The extremely simplistic power plantis virtually maintenance free, nly needing minor adjustments such aschain tensionfrom time to time. Which is simply done with common hand tools. The great thing about this Moped style set up is that when you don't want to use the motor, ike functions just like an ordinary bicycle, nd can go anywhere you wish to peddle it. When using the motor, ike can reach speeds up to around 35 mph, nd with around 80 MPG the fun seemingly goes on forever.

We HIGHLY suggest draining all fuel from the bike before displaying them in a home, ffice or place ofbusiness !!!

If purchasing for display only... Let us know and we will drain, inse and thoroughly clean out the fuel tank, arb float bowl, nd motor before shipping.

We will do this Free Of Charge to ensure that it is done correctly and that the bike will not only be safe to display in Home, ffice, r business, ut will also be completely free of all fumes and fuel smells.

We pride ourselves in building our bikes not only to be eye catching art,but also to be completely functional andride-able.You will find that all of our fuel tanks are hand crafted for each individual build. Building each tank by hand allows us to more accurately replicate the style of tank for each individual motif.Depending on the style, ach one of our tanks hold at least 1 US Gallon, iving the rider a riding range under motor power of around 80 miles per tank. Each tank is hand crafted from scratch using high quality 16 gauge steel. Completely TIG welded and internally seal with a fuel tank sealer that protects the tank from internal rusting for years to come.

In most of the U.S.A. thesetypes of bikes are classified by the states DMV, department of motor vehicles), s "Mopeds".Therefore theyDO NOTrequire title, icensing or even amotorcycle endorsement. However, heck with your local DMV to be sure of the laws in your area.

As much fun as they are to ride, hey are just as fantastic as a functional art peace for an office, en, r as that attention grabbing conversation piecefor your/his man cave. They are also fantastic for promotional events or as an eye grabber for a store front. Have had a few customers order builds to be used as "PIT" bikes on track days, nd other customers have ordered a few for RVing around the country. Also great as a compliment piece to ride in the bed of your classic truck. The best part is, t the car show pull out the bike and ride around to view and enjoy the other beautiful machines and people.
