Morel Custom Cycle

Morel Custom Cycle


By Mad Paris

Richard wanted to build a simple and reasonable motorcycle, a bike that attracted attention but was not too crazy. With these basic instructions and a request for a 26-inch front wheel, Pascal Morel at MC Cycle began to work !

Starting with a rough looking FLH, Pascal proceeded to strip and slice. Once the motorcycle was completely “naked”, the FLH was raked and stretched to bring out the new sexier flowing curves. “To install the front wheel, it took some machining to make the new front disc brake from Glenndyne Design compatible”, said Pascal. The fork triple trees and front fender came from Hawg Halters Inc. The lower fork legs, floorboards and the latches on the elongated saddlebags that wrap the 16-inch rear wheel came from Arlen Ness’ Deep Cut series. At this point the FLH’s chassis was shod with a Renegade Wheels front component; the build was moving along gracefully.

Sniper-96

Sniper-96


By Charlie Lessard

Honourable military man Jason Fraser is the proud owner of this dark Western Canadian beauty. Jason’s inspiration for this machine came the moment he laid eyes (and hands) on a After Dark Motorcycles’ custom built bike. ADM’s Military Tribute Bike “Camo-Toe” featured in the spring 2010 issue of RMM is what made Jason order ADM to once again spark up the blow torch ! Jason’s respectable military career brought him to attain the rank of Warrant Officer in the 1CMBG (1st Canadian Mechanized Brigade Group) based in Edmonton. He now works for Suncor’s Turnaround Division in Fort McMurray.

Built by John Timmons, this Maximum Metalworks Twin-Cam 2-up/0-stretch rigid frame with thirty degrees of neck rake is the foundation for this fast and ferocious black combatant. Kept short and tight this chassis was constructed to conduct itself with total discipline – prepared for all battles the streets of Edmonton could launch !

Sharpie Bike

Sharpie Bike


By Mad Paris

There are three ways to build a bike : on the “cheap” with less than desirable low quality parts, “quickly” which looks good in the moment but will rapidly deteriorate and finally the “right” way which arrives at perfection, a little long to achieve but worth the wait, and it won’t go out of fashion in the near future !

Airbrushing has no limits and reigns in the world of custom but Jessie Armand (A.K.A. Jet-Set Design), who is also a tattoo artist and sculptor, wanted to stand out and go against the grain by putting his signature on a rolling chassis manufactured by Rolling Thunder. “I had already done a car in the past, entirely styled with a Sharpie pen but a motorcycle, this is my one and only. The artwork on the chassis took me the longest time, about five hundred hours in total, because there’s nothing flat and I wanted continuity”, said Jet Set. “I wanted to bring my background in graffiti to the foreground because that’s what I like the most. There are no restrictions; it can go in any direction. Graffiti art is not just a bunch of doodling, it’s a way of life”, he said.
