Chunky Monkey

Details and Technical

Everybody loves a Sportster bobber and when we were approached to build a classic beauty, we jumped at the chance. CHUNKY MONKEY was built from a ’98 donor bike and re-engineered from the ground up. To kick start the project we built a mild gooseneck hardtail frame to house the re-vamped motor. Next on list was to couple it up to a set of our signature style springer front ends to compliment those bulbous wheels. This bike had to look clean and get lost in itself, so a minimal gas tank and oil tank was fitted along with a simple, but effective exhaust system. The overall look of this bike was to be black, but it had to go POP and stand out. How do you make a black bike stand out….? Let your painter have free range on the design and Dennis’s answer to this was to throw in the gold lines, art work and find a home for the monkeys banana. Bam, mission complete, one clean, simple and elegant Sportster that stands out from the crowd. Chunky Monkey has just raised the bar on custom Sportster builds. Where does a monkey hide it’s banana….? Take a close look and you will see!
