The Rebirth of the Monster

Here's the first big chunk of the new GSX-R1000. This is the kind of bike that scares people on the highway, and that's alright. Stay tuned.

Bill's Streetfighter Project

This is my friend Bill's '03 GSX-R1000 that I'm going to Streetfighter. The style hasn't really caught on much here in the States, but it's fucking huge in the UK and Germany. Basically, you strip down a sportbike of all the fairings, gauges, turn signals, etc. Just the bare bones to make it go. Considering this particular bike has already been dyno'd at 148 HP, it should be okay fast. Yep.

Look for updates in the next month.

Bad Monkey International

My buddy Jason recently got married in Japan, and he took some pics in Osaka with our club sticker covertly added to the landscape. He also met a guy who had bought an old noodle shop and put his bike shop in the bottom floor and was living upstairs, a cool cat by all accounts. Check it out.

Andre's KZ650

Another customer bike. 1978 KZ650 engine, Cycle One frame built to my spec. Running the stock KZ front end with a late model sporty fender I modified to fit. The bars on it are temporary, I built a custom set of pullback drags out of stainless to fit the customer's request. Definitely won't be another one like it in this town. This one will be running by the end of the month.

The Road Weapon

This a Buell rigid I'm building for my friend Dave, who was the first licensed tattooist in the state of South Carolina (once the bible beating assholes that run this state finally conceded defeat! It's 2007 people!!)

Anyway, the bike began life as a 2000 M1 Cyclone, but I think we've improved on it a little bit. More progress pics of this thing to come.

The War Machine

This is a bike I'm building for my buddy Tommy. He was injured in Afghanistan, so we're doing some custom work on the hand/foot controls to accomodate his disability. Primarily moving the clutch & shifter to a hand shift set up, and then moving the rear brake pedal from the right side to the left side.

He wanted something heavy duty looking and I think the bike is coming together well in that aspect. Overall, a Mad Max look, like you could ram thru anything in your way.

Here goes nothing

Alright, I've started this thing to make it easier to update pics and happenings here at Bad Monkey Motorworks. I don't know anything about websites, and figuring out how to update my current one is beyond my abilities, so I'll be posting pictures of current/ongoing projects here. Recognize!!
