THE BUILD

Building this machine was not an end unto itself.  The concept was to design, build and campaign a bike unsupported through the back roads and trails of Alaska with a select group of similarly crazed knuckleheads and make some memories.

modelling

The tanks, seat and fenders were formed by hand with a Surform.  The masters were dense modeling foam and Bondo.

ergonomics

This process is preferable because of the immediacy of sculpting, checking for ergonomic fit and repeat - until achieving the perfect, tailored fit.

prototype

Once masters were completed and molds produced, the first set of parts were fitted and extensively tested for comfort and durability in the deserts of Southern California and finally - the Alaskan wilderness.
