Just thought I would share a picture of my BAR BIKE. It is a custom build from UMC Ultra Motorcycle Co. It's a fun ride.

Looks good. Did all the parts come painted or chromed?

About how many hours was the build and what did it run you?

Blitzen, nice bike!

Here's what I did with a salvaged Fat Boy.

ETA: I just learned that I don't know how to post a picture. Oops.

That's what I thought I did (twice, actually) and my browser even showed the picture being uploaded to the server, but nothing showed up on the post. Old farts and computers don't mix, I guess.

And the other side.

The chrome is reflecting the trees all around my yard.

Thanks.

It's got 95" jugs, a cam, 11:1 pistons, ported heads, a Mikuni smoothbore, Python pipes, upgraded ignition module, and a few other little goodies. When it comes onto the cam, you'd never believe it's a Harley. Lotta fun. It's the bike I ride when I have no place in particular to go.

What about yours? Can you show a close-up shot of the rear wheel, too?

Here are a few pictures. Will have to do for now. I am off to the hospital in the am. When I get home and start rehab I will have more time to brake it down for you.

I just refer to it as my custom build. Sorry for the deception.

Oh no need for sorry.Its a nice Bike.You will catch alot of grief from guys with ground up customs by calling the ultra a custom but who cares.Its all about what you want and what you like so like I said just ride the ass off that thing and enjoy.

Well Sh*#. Looks like my summer is shot for ridding my scooter now. I have had my spine fused with rods from my ass to my neck for a long time now. Started having low back pain a few weeks ago so spent a couple of days in the hospital to find out why. (FOUND IT) I managed to brake my titanium rods in 4 places. I guess it's an easy fix but will take most of the summer to rehab it. Bike goes back in the garage and covered for the summer.
