Ace, what is this "next big upgrade" you refer to?
That is awesome! What a clean looking bike too! Nice work!
Yeah that bike is ridiculously awesome and good looking. You guys should be pretty proud of that one. Love the gold heads - love how beefy it looks. Good taste all around.
Chuck, Ace, this has always been my favorite fireball... Personally, I'd throw rearsets on it, though. Question, though--your exhaust header. I dig it. Did you simply cut it and have an exhaust shop give it a slight bend? Did you bend it yourself? That very slight upsweep is pretty much exactly where I want to go with mine, although it's going to be a challenge fitting around my rearsets. (Serving me right, of course.)
Looks great even parked above the stinky Gowanus! Chuck we should get together sometime. I actually saw your bike briefly at the show in WB this summer but didn't get to meet you. I'm up in Williamsburg. Would love to grab a beer and talk Enfields sometime.
Ace, few questions:Do you and Chumma work out of the same shop? Does he do custom bike work all the time or just the Fireball projects with you?Was reading the older kneeslider article about Chuck's bike and trying to sort out what work was done. The finishes to the engine make it look amazing. What is going on up top? Is that bronze/copper metal functional? Or just a nice finishing piece? I love the rough look of the Badger, but Chuck's engine looks like a work of art.Also, Chumma mentions shaving 90 pounds off the bike!!! Looking at it... all the parts look there so I'm curious where and how you guys saved.If this is all in another thread, just point me there and save yourself the typing .Thanks,Boggy
